" When you are talking about people and describing what you think of them, you are actually describing yourself; you just don't know it."
Written in 2004 by Jaclyn B., Age 14 --- New Jersey
When you say things about others, it's usually because you are self-conscious or jealous of them; and what you say about them is, sometimes, what you don't like about yourself.

A GREAT TEACHER WILL:
*Teach with all his heart,
*Teach with full of love and joy,
*Always gives faith and hope to his students,
*Always believes that his students will perform their best,
*And never gives up teaching until his students receive awards!

" Your hard work should be always a vector quantity; i.e. with a magnitude and direction."
Copyright 1999 Akhilesh Jain
A scalar quantity is only having magnitude but no direction, and the hard worker is no more successful. He is not more than a donkey.

" Urging all of us to open out minds and hearts so that we can know beyond the boundaries of what is acceptable, so that we can think and rethink, so that we can create new vision. I celebrate teaching that enables transgressions--a movement against and beyond boundaries. It is that movement which makes education the practice of freedom."

" There is a place in the world for everyone; a place where we all feel safe, where people know us and still like us or at least tolerate us. Seeing this reminds me that people all come into the world the same way but where we differ, is when we find that place where we belong, where we feel safe and people know us, and still like us or at least tolerate us.&quot

" Seek education rather than grades. Seek your best rather than someone else's. Seek friendship rather than acceptance. Seek worth rather than rank. Seek to build rather than to tear down. Seek laughter and love in spite of pain and you will have learned to live.&quot
