"We are called to be architects of the future, not its victims."

A few inspirational quotes for my classroom




“If I were again beginning my studies, I would follow the advice of Plato and start with mathematics.”

Galileo Galilei



“[F]ailure is nothing more than a few errors in judgment repeated every day.


Like the formula for failure, the formula for success is easy to follow: A few simple disciplines practiced every day.”

Jim Rohn
