“A generation that acquires knowledge without ever understanding how that knowledge can benefit the community is a generation that is not learning what it means to be citizens in a democracy.”
“Action springs not from thought, but from a readiness for responsibility.”
“Where there is not community, trust, respect, ethical behavior are difficult for the young to learn and for the old to maintain.”
“One day, all children in this nation will have the opportunity to attain an excellent education.”
“Help one another; there’s no time like the present and no present like the time.”
“Start by doing what’s necessary; then do what’s possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible..”
Between the dark and the daylight, When the night is beginning to lower,
"Giving should be entered into in just the same careful way as investing. . .Giving is investing."
“In the quiet hours when we are alone and there is nobody to tell us what fine fellows we are, we come sometimes upon a moment in which we wonder, not how much money we are earning, nor how famous we have become, but what good we are doing.”
“Community is like a ship; everyone ought to be prepared to take the helm.
“Because it’s summer and the memories are just waiting to happen.”
“. . .If you want anything said, ask a man. If you want anything done, ask a woman.”
"We have a hunger of the mind which asks for knowledge of all around us, and the more we gain, the more is our desire; the more we see, the more we are capable of seeing."
"Christmas is a necessity. There has to be at least one day of the year to remind us that we're here for something else besides ourselves."
"The true meaning of life is to plant trees, under whose shade you do not expect to sit."
"In this troubled world, it's refreshing to find someone who still has the time to be kind. Someone who still has the faith to believe that the more you give, the more you receive. Someone who's ready by thought, word, or deed to reach out a hand, in the hour of need."
"Without continual growth and progress, such words as improvement, achievement, and success have no meaning."
"Amazing friends; summer nights;
"The art of progress is to preserve order amid change and to preserve change amid order." - Alfred North Whitehead
"The best moments usually occur when a person's body or mind is stretched to its limits in a voluntary effort to accomplish something difficult and worthwhile."
