[B]Here is a short little story, but very meaningful.[/B]

[COLOR=lime]During my second year of nursing school our professor gave us a quiz. I breezed through the questions until I read the last one: "What is the first name of the woman who cleans the school?" Surely this was a joke. I had seen the cleaning woman several times, but how would I know her name? I handed in my paper, leaving the last question blank. Before the class ended, one student asked if the last question would count toward our grade. "Absolutely," the professor said. "In your careers, you will meet many people. All are significant. They deserve your attention and care, even if all you do is smile and say hello." I've never forgotten that lesson. I also learned her name was Dorothy. [/COLOR]

Hmmm well I'd have to say this verse from the song The Impossible by Joe Nichols

Unsinkable ships, sink
Unbreakable walls, break
Sometimes the things you think would never happen
Happen just like that
Unbendable steel, bends
If the fury of the wind is unstoppable
I've learned to never underestimate
The impossible

I like it because sometimes I intepret it as nodody should give up on thier dreams. Never think that anything is impossible. There are some amazing people that overcome all odds. look at the special olympics for example. Those people never let anything come in there way of becoming an athlete and I admire them for that. Flying to the moon was once considered impossible and look at us now. We built the Lunar Module and flew to the moon. Nothing is ever impossible if you have the will to work for it :).

"Hey now, don't be mean, because remember... no matter where you go, there you are."

I like it because it reminds us all that we shouldn't be mean because we'll always have to live with that no matter what we do.[/quote]

"A friend is someone who reaches for your hand... but touches your heart." -Anonymous

i chose this quote because i believe it tells a lot about friendship. if you and your friend are truly friends, they stay with you forever in your heart. time will go on and people get older, but the friendship and memories last a lifetime.(:

I got a very intersting one from Jenna, not a quote, but rather a word :wink2:

"believe" why? it tells you to believe in yourself, others, it says that if you believe we CAN make a difference in the world, and so on. I'd have to go with believe.

I hope some of these quotes have warm up your heart and at least inspire you to do something. Have a wonderful weekend wizards!
