The Quote Meme

Oh, everybody is doing it and I love quotes, so I can't resist!

Go here and look through random quotes until you find 5 that you think reflect who you are or what you believe.
The guy who takes a chance, who walks the line between the known and unknown, who is unafraid of failure, will succeed.
Gordon Parks
Be courteous, be obliging, but don't give yourself over to be melted down for the benefit of the tallow trade.
George Eliot
When you travel, remember that a foreign country is not designed to make you comfortable. It is designed to make its own people comfortable.
Clifton Fadiman

Real Live Preacher
Use what talents you possess: the woods would be very silent if no birds sang there except those that sang best.
Henry Van Dyke
And, as a bonus, I could not resist including these two:
This one is very personal:

Sometimes it seems like God is difficult to find and impossibly far away. We get so caught up in our small daily duties and irritations that they become the only things that we can focus on. What we forget is that God's love and beauty are all around us, every day, if only we would take the time to look up and see them.
And this one I dedicate to you, my dear students:

Home computers are being called upon to perform many new functions, including the consumption of homework formerly eaten by the dog.
Doug Larson
