behind every great man, there's a great woman

A man's wife is often instrumental in his success, though her contributions often go unseen or unacknowledged. I know it's a cliché to say that behind every great man, there's a great woman, but I can honestly say that I would not be standing here today, accepting this award, without the tireless support of my beautiful wife.
