You are the result of 4 billion years of evolutionary success. Act like it.

Teachers and students must always remain free to inquire, to study and to evaluate, to gain new maturity and understanding; otherwise our civilization stagnate and die." Chief Justice Earl Warren

One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we've been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We're no longer interested in finding out the truth . The bamboozle has captured us. It is simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that we've been credulous .(So the old bamboozles tend to persist as the new bamboozles arise. ) Carl Sagan

Ninety-nine percent of the failures come from people who have the habit of making excuses. George Washington Carver

If you do your best and are denied opportunity, that is discrimination.  If you don't do your best and are denied opportunity, that is justice. - Unknown

The road must be trod, but it will be very hard. And neither strength nor wisdom will carry us far upon it.  This quest may be attempted by the weak with as much hope as the strong. Yet such is oft the course of deeds that move the wheels of the world: small hands do them because they must, while the eyes of the great are elsewhere.  - J.R.R. Tolkien (The Fellowship of the Ring)

Education's purpose is to replace an empty mind with an open one. --Malcolm Forbes

Adults are obsolete children. - Dr. Seuss


I often warn people, "Somewhere along the way, someone is going to tell you. "There is no "I" in team." What you should tell them is, "Maybe not. But there is an "I" in independence, individuality, and integrity." - George Carlin

Most people would sooner die than think; in fact, they do so. - Bertrand Russell

My favorite poem is the one that starts 'Thirty days hath September' because it actually tells you something.- Groucho Marx

The laziest man I ever met put popcorn in his pancakes so they would turn over by themselves.- W.C. Field 


If you have time to criticize others work while doing your own, either your job is very easy, or it is being done very poorly - Guemmer
