The smallest good deed is better than the grandest good intention. -- Duguet
Whether you believe you can do a thing or not, you are right.
Seek respect mainly from thyself, for it comes first from within.
The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires. -- William Arthur Ward "If it's amazing, it won’t be easy. If it's easy, it won’t be amazing. If it's worth it, you won't give up. If you give up, it's not worth it."
