Poet: Heather K. Barclay
Harsh words, like chickens, love to stray
but they come home to rest each day.
If you have angry words to say-
stop and think!
Wouldst shape a noble life? Then cast
No backward glances toward the past,
And though somewhat be lost and gone,
Yet do thou act as one new-born;
What each day needs, that shalt thou ask,
Each day will set its proper task.
Poet: Amelia Earhart
Courage is the price
that life extracts
for granting peace.
The soul that knows it not,
knows no release
from little things.
Poet: Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
If Spring came but once in a century,
instead of once a year,
or burst forth with the sound of an earthquake,
and not in silence,
what wonder and expectation there would be in
all hearts to behold the miraculous change.
Poet: Bret Harte
Never a tear
bedims the eye
that time and patience
will not dry.
When you are in love you can't fall asleep because reality is better than your dreams.
I love you, not for what you are, but for what I am when I am with you.
Things should be made as simple as possible, but not any simpler.
Technological progress has merely provided us with more efficient means for going backwards.
The older you get the more miracles you see in the changing of the seasons.
A single arrow is easily broken, but not ten in a bundle.
The biggest obstacle in the path to success is an attitude of self-defeat, and it is the simplest to remove.
Greg Henry Quinn, 365 Meditations for Teachers
Make it your goal to be the best you can be at whatever task is set before you.
Jerry Jenkins, Twelve Things I Want my Kids to Remember
What do I want to take home from my summer vacation? Time. The wonderful luxury of being at rest. The days when you shut down the mental machinery that keeps life on track and let life simply wander. The days when you stop planning, analyzing, thinking and just are. Summer is my period of grace.
