The Wise are instructed by reason,

The Average minds by experience,

The Stupid by necessity

and The Brute by instinct.

Marcus Tulius Cicero 106 -43BC

Great Roman orator, writer and politician

Which one are you?

Forgive. It doesn’t erase their crime but why should you do the time. Let go of resentment.

By Dodinsky,

“Il y a des gens si pauvres que la seule chose qu’ils possedent est l’argent”

“Le bonheur d’un ami nous enchante. Il nous ajoute. Il n’ôte rien. Si l’amitié s’en offense, elle n’est pas.”

Jean Cocteau


” What was educationally significant and hard to measure has been replaced by what is educationally insignificant and easy to measure. So now we measure how well we’ve taught what isn’t worth learning! ”
Dr Arthur Costa
(from the book “Endangered Minds” by Jane M. Healy, Ph.D)

Quote Jessie Wise

Work while you work

Play while you play

This is the way

To be happy each day.

All that you do,

Do with your might;

Things done by half

Are never done right.

This is what I have found while browsing through a friend’s book:

Abraham Lincoln quote.

“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.” Mahatma Gandhi
