Quotes For A New School Year

Since I'm a professional quote hoarder, I've started adding more prints to my gallery wall.  Surprising?  Not really.  As a result, I've been spending even more time on Pinterest, and I've stumbled across some quotes that are just exquisite.
Getting back into the school groove takes motivation, whether you're a teacher or a student.  When you're moving to a new school, it's even more draining.  One million questions are probing your mind:  what are the people like?  Will all of the upperclassmen hate me?  What if I can't make the sports team?  The list goes on and on. Forget about those little questions, and focus on the meanings of these quotes.  As they say, "We are what our thoughts have made us;  so take care about what you think."

1. Take it from da Vinci:  great accomplishments are not achieved by sitting on your phone the entire day (no matter how tempting it is to do so).
Day 171: It had long since come to my attention that people of accomplishment rarely sat back and let things happen to them. They went out and happened to things. -Leonardo da Vinci

2. Don't miss out on an amazing opportunity simply because "it's too hard."  Been there, almost done that.  
Opportunity is missed by people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work. —Thomas Edison
Via

3. This has been my motto so far, and it's worked out to my advantage.  Just remember:  there's a time for play, and there's a time for school.  They shouldn't mix.

4. School isn't all about studying;  it's also about trying to find out who you are.
Beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself

5. It's perfectly acceptable to make a less than stellar grade on that test, as long as that grade was the best you could do.  Little mistakes won't define your entire year.

6. It may be hard to get back in the groove of things--however, you aren't the only one who is struggling.  Soon enough, you'll be finding people you share common interests with, and a beautiful friendship will begin.
the sad thing was my "best friend" was the one who ruined it. Its amazing how many people lie, and cheat and try to get ahead and be best. Well KARMA!!!

7. We all have those days when we go to the wrong lunch period or fall down in the hall (yours truly has done both);  however, on those bad days, we also learn to laugh at ourselves, and that's not a bad thing.
Every day may not be good, but there's something good in every day #quotes

8. School is not a popularity contest--and frankly, popularity isn't worth what you must do to obtain it.
Seek to be worth knowing rather than be well known
