A mind that is stretched by a new experience can never go back to its old dimensions. —Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.
No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted. —Aesop
If I had to select one quality, one personal characteristic that I regard as being most highly correlated with success, whatever the field, I would pick the trait of persistence. Determination. The will to endure to the end, to get knocked down seventy times and get up off the floor saying, ”Here comes number seventy-one!” —Richard DeVos
A single act of kindness throws out roots in all directions, and the roots spring up and make new trees. —Amelia Earhart

The strength of the team is each individual member. The strength of each member is the team. —Phil Jackson
A good teacher can inspire hope, ignite the imagination, and instill a love of learning. —Brad Henry
Our character is what we do when we think no one is looking. —H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
