Let us think of education as the means of developing our greatest abilities, because in each of us there is a private hope and dream which, fulfilled, can be translated into benefit for everyone and greater strength for our nation.

A few thoughts on the meaning of life:
- Be Kind
- Be Forgiving
- Be Inspired
Feel sad for those that can’t see life as simply as that. We all occupy this planet for a short time.
Do Something You Love To Do
Make Something You Love To Make
Pass It On To Others.
No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.
Remember always that you not only have the right to be an individual, you have an obligation to be one.
The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.
– Eleanor Roosevelt

I Wish I Had Been Kinder to Others
Now that I am older, I realize how important small acts of kindness are. We are all connected in some way. There is no reason to become hostile with waitresses or customer service reps over petty things. Taking time for little things, like letting someone with two items pass me at the grocery store when I have an overflowing cart would have been, in retrospect, well worth the sacrifice.
“Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a harder battle.” – Plato
“Do your little bit of good where you are; it’s those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world.” – Desmond Tutu

Having one of those Monday’s where there’s so much work and you have no clue where to begin? Feel like you’re hopelessly overwhelmed? Stop, take a step back and a deep breath.
Perhaps you just think you’re overwhelmed. As discussed in this article on Feeling Stuck? Five Bad Habits to Avoid, you shouldn’t always believe in what you think, especially about yourself or your abilities.
“Remember, happiness doesn’t depend upon who you are or what you have, it depends solely upon what you think.” – Dale Carnegie
Take a few minutes to break things down into smaller tasks to handle.
“You can do anything, but not everything.” – David Allen
Make the highest priority items your objective for today.
“If you don’t have daily objectives, you qualify as a dreamer.” – Zig Ziglar
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do, so throw off the bowlines, sail away from safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore, Dream, Discover.”
“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life.”
“People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing. That’s why we recommend it daily.”
