Education is a Process . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . T.T. James, Soundings, Apr. ‘90

     "You're not automatically educated when you get out of college. Education is a process, not a package. Its goal is not the acquisition of a specific set of skills or body of knowledge, but a maturity of mind and emotions that enables one to be a better person as well as a better engineer, lawyer, or scientist."


Dream…Discovery . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Anonymous

Laugh at the World . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Og Mandino, The Greatest Salesman in the World

"Scroll 8: ‘Today I will multiply my value of a hundredfold.'
     I am liken to a grain of wheat with one difference.…I have a choice and I will not let my life be fed to swine nor will I let it be ground under the rocks of failure and despair…
     To grow and multiply it is necessary to plant the grain in the darkness of the earth and my failures, my despair, my ignorance, and my inabilities are the darkness in which I have been planted in order to ripen.
     …If I stumble I will rise and my falls will not concern me for all must stumble…Only a worm is free from the worry of stumbling. I am not a worm."


Great People . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Mark Twain

     "Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great."


A Man Like Fine Wine . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Anonymous, via Teresa's Jokes

Kinds of Readers . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Samuel T. Coleridge, Miriam C. Hunter, Guidewords, p. 88

     "The first is like the hour-glass; their reading being as the sand, it runs in and runs out, and leaves no vestige behind.
     The second is like the sponge, which imbibes everything, and returns it in nearly the same state, only a little dirtier.
     A third is like a sieve, allowing all that is pure to pass away, retaining only the refuse and dregs.
     And the fourth is like mining diamonds, casting aside all that is worthless, retaining only pure gems."


On Leadership . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . James L. Fisher

"Leadership is the special quality which enables people to stand up and pull the rest of us over the horizon."


My Mission . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Edward Everett Hale

"To look up and not down,
To look forward and not back,
To look out and not in, and
To lend a hand."


My Chief Duty . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Helen Keller

     "I long to accomplish a great and noble task, but it is my chief duty to accomplish humble tasks as though they were great and noble.
     The world is moved along, not only by the mighty shoves of its heroes, but also by the aggregate of the tiny pushes of each honest worker."

A Happy Person… . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Hugh Downs

Reflect the Inner Light . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Elizabeth Kubler-Ross

     "People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within."


Your Greatest Fear . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Chris Chase, Cosmopolitan

     "Barbara Walters has interviewed many of the people who have changed the world in their lifetime. And she says, surprisingly, that Cher is one ‘who says things that make me think, I must remember that.'

     Walters elaborates, ‘I asked Cher what her greatest fear was?'

     Cher answered, ‘Personally, that I won't live my life as well as I know it could be lived, that I'll be stupid and not have guts and integrity. That I'll make choices that are safe.'

     Walters says, ‘I often think of those words because I get afraid sometimes that I will do something because it is safe.'"
