DATE THOUGHT OF THE DAY
4/1/17      "It is paradoxical that many educators and parents still differentiate between a time for learning and a time for play without seeing the vital connection between them." - Leo Buscaglia
4/2/17      "It is the capacity to develop and improve their skills that distinguishes leaders from followers." - Warren G. Bennis
4/3/17      "Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide."- John Adams
4/4/17      "There is nothing like knowing you have a real opportunity to affect the future in a positive way.” - Tisha Johnson
4/5/17      "FOCUS = Follow On Course Until Successful." - Ifeanyi Enoch Onuoha
4/6/17      "Effective leadership is not about making speeches or being liked; leadership is defined by results not attributes." - Peter F. Drucker
4/7/17      "Nature never did betray the heart that loved her." - William Wordsworth
4/8/17      “There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so.” - William Shakespeare
4/9/17      "There is nothing quite so useless as doing with great efficiency something that should not be done at all.” - Peter Drucker
4/10/17      "A word after a word after a word is power." - Margaret Atwood
4/11/17      "If your organization requires success before commitment, it will never have either. Part of leadership (a big part of it, actually) is the ability to stick with the dream for a long time. Long enough that the critics realize that you're going to get there one way or another ... so they follow." - Seth Godin
4/12/17      "Every act of conscious learning requires the willingness to suffer an injury to one's self-esteem. That is why young children, before they are aware of their own self-importance, learn so easily; and why older persons, especially if vain or important, cannot learn at all." - Thomas Szasz
4/13/17      "Price is what you pay. Value is what you get." - Warren Buffett
4/14/17      "I love you, and because I love you, I would sooner have you hate me for telling you the truth than adore me for telling you lies." - Pietro Aretino
4/15/17      "I have tried to maintain civil relationships with everyone I meet - and, even if I violently disagree with them, try to be respectful." - Robert M. Gates
4/16/17      "We are taxed twice as much by our idleness, three times as much by our pride, and four times as much by our folly." - Benjamin Franklin
4/17/17      "Worrying is like paying a debt you don't owe." - Mark Twain
4/18/17      "Happiness depends upon ourselves." - Aristotle
4/19/17      "A new word is like a fresh seed sown on the ground of the discussion." - Ludwig Wittgenstein
4/20/17      "One life is all we have and we live it as we believe in living it. But to sacrifice what you are and to live without belief, that is a fate more terrible than dying." - Joan of Arc
4/21/17      "A day of worry is more exhausting than a day of work." - John Lubbock
4/22/17      "Science is built with facts as a house is with stones, but a collection of facts is no more a science than a heap of stones is a house." - Jules Henri Poincare
4/23/17      "Service to others is the rent you pay for your room here on earth." - Mohammad Ali
