"One ought, every day at least, to hear a little song, read a good poem, see a fine picture, and if it were possible, to speak a few reasonable words." Goethe

Here's another quote that I find relevant to education.

"I don't want many things,
Just a chance to spread my wings.
I don't know what the future brings,
but I want to be there."

Hey, Kevin. One of my favorite quotes from NECC was from you: "If you ask kids to do the right thing, 99 times out of 100, they will....Why are we zero tolerant with digital, when analog isn't that way?"

Your fan :),
