It's tough to make predictions, especially about the future.  Yogi Berra

My wife says I don't listen - at least, I think that's what she said.

I know you think you understand what you thought I said but do you realize that what you thought you heard is not what I meant to say.

Success is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration.

I hear and I forget.
I see  and I remember.

I do and I understand.


It is more important to do the right thing than to do the thing right.
Peter F. Drucker

You can put state of the art technology on the desk of every student but without the vision of an inspired educator, nothing of value will happen.
David Thornburg

We must prepare students for their future, not our past.

In times of change, learners inherit the earth while the learned find themselves beautifully equipped to deal with a world that no longer exists.
Eric Hoffer

Middle age is when a broad mind and narrow hips change places.

You're getting old when the candles cost more than the cake  Bob Hope

One advantage of getting old is we can have a party and the neighbours don't even know about it.

He who knows not and knows that he knows not, is humble, teach him
He who knows not and thinks he knows is a fool, shun him

He who knows and knows not that he knows is asleep, wake him

He who knows an knows that he knows is wise, follow him.

"'We should give our children two only two things - roots and wings'

Work like you don't need the money,
Love like you've never been hurt,

And dance like no one's watching.

I know you all, and will awhile uphold

The unyok'd humour of your idleness:

Yet herein will I imitate the Sun,

Who doth permit the base contagious clouds

To smother-up his beauty from the world,

That, when he please again to be himself,

Being wanted, he may be more wonder'd at,

By breaking through the foul and ugly mists

Of vapours that did seem to strangle him.

If all the year were playing holidays,

To sport would be as tedious as to work;

But, when they seldom come, they wish'd-for come,

And nothing pleaseth but rare accidents.

So, when this loose behaviour I throw off,

And pay the debt I never promised,

By how much better than my word I am,

By so much shall I falsify men's hopes;

And, like bright metal on a sullen ground,

My reformation, glittering o'er my fault,

Shall show more goodly and attract more eyes

Than that which hath no foil to set it off.

I'll so offend, to make offence a skill;

Redeeming time, when men think least I will.

Henry IV Part 1 - Shakespeare
