Education begins with parental education, then formal education takes the experienced mind of a child and help open it to worlds of formal education. However, don't believe that a child comes to school with an empty mind. That is ignorant.

Superb Message


Joy is a net of love in which you can catch souls. —Mother Teresa
The best thing to give to your enemy is forgiveness; to an opponent, tolerance; to a friend, your heart; to your child, a good example; to a father, deference; to your mother, conduct that will make her proud of you; to yourself, respect; to all men, charity. —Benjamin Franklin
Perhaps love is like a resting place, a shelter from the storm. It exists to give you comfort, it is there to keep you warm, and in those times of trouble when you are most alone, the memory of love will bring you home.
 —John Denver
There is no effect more disproportionate to its cause than the happiness bestowed by a small compliment. —Robert Brault
Walk beside me and be my friend. —Albert Camus
You're only responsible for being honest, not for someone else's reaction to your honesty. —Kelli Jae Baeli

Obstacles don’t have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don’t turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it or work around it. —Michael Jordan
And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it. —Roald Dahl
At times you have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. What you'll discover will be wonderful. What you'll discover is yourself. —Alan Alda
To put the world right in order, we must first put the nation in order; to put the nation in order, we must first put the family in order; to put the family in order, we must first cultivate our personal life; we must first set our hearts right. —Confucius
Peace is the result of retraining your mind to process life as it is, rather than as you think it should be. —Dr. Wayne Dyer
Practice isn't the thing you do once you're good. It's the thing you do that makes you good. —Malcolm Gladwell
