I just got back from Math Pilot Orientation, which I’ll write about when I have the energy. But I do have quotes! I love quotes, but I hate sappy cheesy quotes. These are cheese-free.
“While it is critical to understand the scope and magnitude of the crisis afflicting our nation’s children, it is important not to become overwhelmed and paralyzed, nor to lose sight of the very human faces and lives represented by the numbers.” -Shannon Daly
“We cannot live for ourselves alone.” -Vernon E. Jordan, Jr.
“The dogmas of the quite past are inadequate to the stormy present. The occasion is piled high with difficulty, and we must rise with the occasion. As our case is new, so we must think anew and act anew. We must disenthrall ourselves, and then we shall save our country.” -Abraham Lincoln
“If you have made mistakes…there is always another chance for you…you may have a fresh start any moment you choose, for this thing we call ‘failure’ is not the falling down, but the staying down.” -Mary Pickford
“Ideas won’t keep. Something must be done about them.” -Alfred North Whitehead
“It is best for men, when they take counsel, to be timorous, and imagine all possible calamities, but when the time for action comes, then to deal boldly.” - Heroditus
“Treat people as if they were what they ought to be, and help them become what they are capable of being.” -Goethe
”I am afraid the only safe rule is to give more than we can spare…If our charities do not at all pinch or hamper us,… they are too small. There ought to be things we should like to do and cannot do because our charitable expenditures excludes them.” -C.S. Lewis
