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."

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
Via

"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

"Opportunity is missed by people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work." -- Thomas Edison 

"Study while others are sleeping;  work while others are loafing;  prepare while others are playing;  and dream while others are wishing." -- William Arthur Ward

"Beauty begin the moment you decide to be yourself." -- Coco Chanel

"Mistakes are proof that you are trying." -- Unknown

"Every day may not be good, but there's something good in every day." -- Unknown

"Hard times will always reveal true friends." -- Unknown

"Seek to be worth knowing rather than be well known." -- Unknown

"The more that you read the more things you will know...the more that you learn the more places you'll go!" -- Dr. Seuss

Believe me, you'll move mountains, kid.

What are some of your favorite back-to-school quotes?

Love,

  2. I just love this post!! All of these quotes are wonderful, and they work too.....my nerves are calmed. You can never go wrong with Dr. Suess: My homeroom teacher in sixth grade read "Oh The Places You Will Go" on the first day of school.
