Vacation Time

"A vacation is having nothing to do and all day to do it in."
                                                  - Robert Orben

It's so important to take a week or two to simply do whatever it is that you want to do, but it can be hard to pull yourself from that which you are committed to for a few weeks of reprieve.

Rather than post about nuts and bolts, and daily teaching goals and efforts, I'll reach a bit higher in my morning time of thought and writing. I'll seek out and read quotes that inspire the work I'll do in the days ahead and add those quotes to this post. In the meantime, feel free to use the search to the right to look for posts and thoughts that pertain to your interests and needs.

Quotes to Ponder:

From Goodreads:

"But today our very survival depends on our ability to stay awake, to adjust to new ideas, to remain vigilant and to face the challenge of change. The large house in which we live demands that we transform this world-wide neighborhood into a world-wide brotherhood. Together we must learn to live as brothers or together we will be forced to perish as fools." - Martin Luther King, Jr. 

"We must work passionately and indefatigably to bridge the gulf between our scientific progress and our moral progress. One of the great problems of mankind is that we suffer from a poverty of the spirit which stands in glaring contrast to our scientific and technological abundance. The richer we have become materially, the poorer we have become morally and spiritually." - Martin Luther King Jr. 

From BrainyQuote:'

"A nice person is a 'yes' person, whereas a good person is a person who accepts their responsibility in things and moves forward and tries to constantly evolve and isn't afraid to say no or challenge someone or be honest or truthful."
- Miranda Kerr

"Today, no leader can afford to be indifferent to the challenge of engaging employees in the work of creating the future. Engagement may have been optional in the past, but it's pretty much the whole game today." - Gary Hamel

"I really believe deep in my soul that we're going to have to step up and face these challenges and be tough and pull together and unify and be creative and be willing to sacrifice." - Zach Wamp
