#weverb12 15: quote {GROW}

What inspirational quote would you associate with this past year for you?

Continuing to catch up…

Oooo, this is a hard one. At the beginning of the school year, I revamped the daily bulletin that I put together for the JH/HS, and added a daily quote. I nearly always use the Values.com quote of the day, although some days if the quote didn’t speak to me, or I didn’t get the e-mail in time, I pulled quotes from other sources. There were also a few days when something of significance was happening, so I used a quote that was appropriate, like on Dot Day, the quote was:

Just make a mark and see where it takes you.

Peter Reynolds, The Dot

After nearly an entire semester, this means I have read and loved an awful lot of good inspirational quotes. So many terrific thoughts, it’s almost too hard to pick just one, but it occurs to me that of all of them, one of them was meaningful enough that I printed it and posted it on my bulletin at school:

“Everything we do is infused with the energy with which we do it. If we’re frantic, life will be frantic. If we’re peaceful, life will be peaceful. And so our goal in any situation becomes inner peace.

Marianne Williamson (born 1952);

author, lecturer

I keep aiming for this. I’m not nearly as successful as I would like to be.

Also, this:

When given the choice between being right or being kind, choose kind.

R.J. Palacio, Wonder
