The wisdom of a good teacher:
"Years from now, your students might not remember everything you taught them, but they will remember how you made them feel."
You may not be able to get this YouTube message online at school, but it's worth watching at home or wherever you may be. It's easily one of the most inspirational pieces I've ever watched and I know it will be for you, too. This gentleman is teaching us all an important lesson: how important life is and for each of us to live it to the fullest. Watch this short video and come away with your heart warmed, your eyes moist, and a new outlook on life. Whenever I feel the need to chase away the blues, I find this short video that's now on my desktop to inspire and to energize me.

"Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success.
If you love what you are doing, you will be successful."
~ Albert Schweitzer
"Ich denke niemals an die Zukunft. Sie kommt früh genug."
"I never think of the future. It comes soon enough."
~ Albert Einstein
"Everyone has his burden. What counts is how you carry it."
~ Merle Miller, novelist and historian
"In everyone's life, at some time, our inner fire goes out.
It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being."
"In jedermanns Leben gibt es eine Zeit,
wenn unser inneres Feuer ausgeht.
Es lodert wieder auf bei der Begegnung mit einem anderen Menschen."
~ Albert Schweitzer
"Whatever comes our way,
Whatever battles we have raging inside us,
We always have a choice.
Choose to be the best you can be.
It's the choices that make us who we are,
And we can always choose to do the right thing."
"Was uns im Leben auch immer fehlt,
Welche Kämpfe wir uns ausrichten.
Wir haben immer eine Wahl.
Man muss für das Gute in uns entscheiden.
Enscheidigung machen wir zu dem,
Wer wir sind,
Und wir haben immer die Wahl, das Richtige zu tun."
"Much damage has been done to thought as well as to persons by those who are certain that there is a life - a better, more important life - elsewhere. That this span is brief, that consciousness is an accidental gift of blind processes, makes our existence all the more precious and our responsibilities for it all the more profound."
~ Ian McEwan, British Novelist
