“If everything seems under control, you're just not going fast enough.”



While waiting for her first appointment with her new dentist, Jane notices his degree certificate on the wall, which includes his first name. Suddenly she remembers a tall, handsome boy from her High School class some 45 years ago who had exactly the same name. Naturally she wonders whether this can be the same guy. However upon seeing him, she quickly dismisses any such thought. Surely this aging, balding, grey-haired old man with a deeply lined face could not possibly be one of her old High School classmates? After he had finished examining her teeth, Jane decides to ask him whether he attended the local high school. “Yes,” he replied. “That’s amazing. What year did you graduate then?” Jane asks. “In 1973,” he responds. “Amazing, you were in my class! Jane exclaims. He looks at her closely and then asks, “What subject did you teach?”


Today's Quotes:: “Desire is the key to motivation, but it's determination and commitment to an unrelenting pursuit of your goal - a commitment to excellence - that will enable you to attain the success you seek.”

“A goal isn’t something you just arrive at and stop. You have to stay curious and hungry and foolish.”
“Circumstances may cause interruptions and delays, but never lose sight of your goal. Prepare yourself in every way you can by increasing your knowledge and adding to your experience, so that you can make the most of opportunity when it occurs.”
“The crashes people remember, but drivers remember the near misses.”
“If everything seems under control, you're just not going fast enough.”

"I'll Stretch It a Little"
by Anonymous
The wintry blast was fierce and cold,
And the lassie's coat was thin and old.
Her little brother by her side
Shivered and pitifully cried.
"Come underneath my coat," said she,
"And see how snug and warm you'll be."
The brother answered, nothing loth,
"But is it big enough for both?"
"Yes," said the girl, with cheery wit;
"I'll stretch it out a little bit."
Ah, brothers, sisters, where the mind
Is bent upon an action kind,
What though the means are sparely spun,
And hardly seem to serve for one?
Stretch them with love, and straightway you
Will find them amply wide for two!
Artist Léon Bazille Perrault
