Some writers confuse authenticity, which they ought always to aim at, with originality, which they should never bother about.
W. H. Auden
The countries who do the best in international comparisons, whether it's Finland or Japan, Denmark or Singapore, do well because they have professional teachers who are respected, and they also have family and community which support learning.
Poetry is a sword of lightning, ever unsheathed, which consumes the scabbard that would contain it.
Percy Bysshe Shelley
Life is often compared to a marathon, but I think it is more like being a sprinter; long stretches of hard work punctuated by brief moments in which we are given the opportunity to perform at our best.

New Year's Day. A fresh start. A new chapter in life waiting to be written. New questions to be asked, embraced, and loved.

Only dreams give birth to change.
Sarah Ban Breathnach

Orison Swett Marden
I'm just working and having a good time and seeing what develops, which is so awesome, because you don't know what's going to happen, and I'm letting myself do that a lot more than I ever have.
John F. Kennedy
