I’ve been tagged!

The wonderful Jo Robinson from South Africa has tagged me to publish my 3 favourite quotes, for which I truly thank her because it has made me think carefully about what I want to be identified with.

Here is my first.  It’s actually by Margaret Mead but was oft’ quoted on The West Wing:

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”
― Margaret Mead

The second is something said by Sam Seaborn (played by Rob Lowe) on The West Wing in the episode, Somebody’s Going to Emergency, Somebody’s Going to Jail:

“This country is an idea. And one that’s lit the whole world for two centuries. And treason against that idea is not just a crime against the living. This ground holds the graves of people who have died for it. Who gave what Lincoln called the last full measure of devotion.”

(I get goosebumps every time I think of that. Check it out here.)

The third quote is this:

Never underestimate the power of prayer!  — me

Thanks very much, Jo.  Now, I think I’m supposed to nominate 3 more people.  Here goes:

Olga — inspirational blogger and author — http://www.olganm.com/

Chris, the story reading ape — an amazing support for authors and promoter of reading; dying to know what inspires you — http://thestoryreadingapeblog.com/

Bette A. Stevens — a Maine author with a heart for promoting literacy —  http://4writersandreaders.com/

Looking forward to seeing what inspires others.  Thanks again, Jo.


About mysm2000

Having taught elementary school for more than 25 years and been involved in many amazing technology and curriculum projects, I find I've developed a myriad of interests based on literature I've read and music I've heard. I've followed The Wright Three to Chicago, Ansel Adams to Colorado, The Kon Tiki Expedition to Easter Island, Simon & Garfunkel lyrics to New York City, Frank Lloyd Wright to Fallingwater, Pennsylvania, and have only just begun.

    Thanks so much Mrs M. As you know at the moment I’m too busy to take on any challenges but I’ll save it up for a future time when I have some brain space to think. Thanks so much and great quotes!
