As we gear up for 2014, I thought the role of Educators and these "thoughts" capture the essence of it all:
It is literally true that you can succeed best and
quickest by helping others to succeed.
- Napoleon Hill
The truth of the matter is that
you always know the right thing to do.
The hard part is doing it.
- Norman Schwarzkoff
I have found the paradox,
that if you love until it hurts,
there can be no more hurt, only more love.
- Mother Teresa
All that we are is the result of what we have thought.
If a man speaks or acts with an evil thought, pain follows him.
If a man speaks or acts with a pure thought,
happiness follows him, like a shadow that never leaves him.
- The Buddha
It is not easy at times to do the right thing--but the legacy we leave as Educators is critical and we must never forget that.
Onward to 2014 with all the beauty and the hope that it has before it :-)
