"The reputation of a thousand years may be determined by the conduct of one hour."
~ Japanese proverb
"The only disability in life is a bad attitude."
~ Scott Hamilton
"A baby is God's opinion that the world should go on."
~ Carl Sandburg

It's up to you as teachers to make all these sick children well--by creating the international child of the future.
~ Chester M. Pierce, Harvard psychiatrist
If you want to test a man's character, give him power.
~ George Washington
That roughhousing between father and son that may make mom cringe is actually the rudimentary beginning of a boy's management of his aggression and his ability to substitute emotional mastery and mutual cooperation for violent interaction.
~ William Pollack
"I am convinced that life if 10 percent what happens to me and 90 percent how I react to it."
~ Charles Swindoll
