    The most prevalent use of humor today involves making fun of, or putting another person down. Isn't this sad though? I've always told my kids that, "if I make a thousand people laugh, at the expense of hurting one person's feelings, it's not worth it."

    I read this quotation on the wall of a school building.

    " We should ever pretend to know what we don't know, we should not feel ashamed to ask and learn from people below, and we should listen carefully to the views of the cadres at the lowest levels. Be a pupil before you become a teacher; learn from the cadres at the lower levels before you issue orders."
    Mao Tse-tung

    " I say get an education. Become an electrician, a mechanic, a doctor, a lawyer - anything but a fighter. In this trade, it's the managers that make the money and last the longest."
    Muhammad Ali

    " Every child must be encouraged to get as much education as he has the ability to take. We want this not only for his sake - but for the nation's sake. Nothing matters more to the future of our country; not military preparedness - for armed might is worthless if we lack the brain power to build a world of peace; not our productive economy - for we cannot sustain growth without trained manpower; not our democratic system of government - for freedom is fragile if citizens are ignorant."

    " Let no one be deluded that a knowledge of the path can substitute for putting on foot in front of the other."

    " A godly thought is an unseen treasure of an upright man."

    As a Bible School teacher, I can't read others thoughts but I strongly believe that a godly thought is a real treasure to be guarded.

    " All children are gifted. Each individual child is a treasure chest, full of potential. The right teacher is needed to unlock them."

    " Just like we were taught never to judge a book by its cover, never judge a teacher by how they are on the outside because if you take the time to get to know them on the inside, a new world opens up."
    Written in 2003 by Cindy S.
    This goes to my Geometry teacher whom I saw a totally different person - helpful, nice, understanding, and caring, once I allowed myself to see in the inside of him. I learned so much from him just by trusting that he wasn't who I thought he was on the outside.

    " Quick solutions are usually dirty ones."

    I often tell this to my students at UG and PG level in order to think deeply about the problems rather than quickly jumping at simplistic answers.
