This lovely, sweet song made me think a lot about my priorities today.
What is important to YOU?
It's a good thing to ponder.
Gather ye rosebuds while ye may,
Old time is still a-flying;
And this same flower that smiles today
Tomorrow will be dying.
Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.As a winner of the Nobel Prize for poetry, Mr. Yeats knew of what he spoke! In fact, he was paraphrasing the great Socrates when he said it.
No power or influence can or ought to be maintained... only by persuasion, by long-suffering, by gentleness and meekness, and by love unfeigned;We cannot truly influence our children for good, unless we seek to influence them in the same way that God influences us.
But if he will not hear thee, then take with thee one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established. (Matthew 18:16)
