This sunday morning (and many other mornings as well – as I am now having summer holiday, no more teaching hours), I sticked with DuoLingo and other apps on my phone to study French, one popped out on the Notifications of the phone: “10 quotes…” It seemed to me that they are all words of wisdom.
If you think in terms of a year, plant a seed; if in term of ten years, plant trees,; if in terms of 100 years, teach the people – Confucius –
To go too far is as bad as to fall short – Confucius –
It always seems impossible until it’s done – Nelson Mandela –
Make today worth remembering – Zig Ziglar –
Always do what you are afraid to do – Ralph Waldo Emerson –
When you’re at the end of your robe, tie a knot and hold on – Theodore Roosevelt –
Give yourself something to work toward, constantly – Mary Kay Ash –
We are wha our thoughts have made us; so take care about what you think. Words are secondary. Thoughts live; they travel far – Swami Vivekananda
I do not want to die rusting, I prefer to burn out – Visvesvaraya –
I re-typed 9 out of 10, as I didn’t like the last one. And yes, I will keep making today worth remembering (as usual).
Je suis comme ça. Hehe.
