A hundred years from now it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove... but the world may be different because I was important in the life of a child.

This is so true, but most folks don't think this way anymore.

Love this quote
Arlene Gourgues, Jacksonville, Florida

Three days ago I visited a friend of mine at his Office. He is an Engineer working for a Venezuelan Big Company. He´s been "unquiet" for a while waiting for some decision which other have to make about his next step in the company. It called my attention that he had written in small "checklist" book on his desk the following: "..at this moment, nothing has been estalished about my near future"...God! I told him" it is no one´s decision, it´s your decision"

This quote marked my life. I bought a Mouse Pad in Calgary in 1997. I used it for four years and I love it a lot because it showed the picture of a young boy (kid) looking at a baeutiful lake. In 2001 or 02 I do not remember, I flew from Dallas FW to Caracas in a Continental Flight. Surprise! The lady who had the seat beside me took the Craft magazine and showed me the picture of the mouse pad and said "I´ve alawys like to have this mousepad, but never found it! I just looked at her and said "Wait a moment" Took out the pad from my laptop case and gave it her. Imagine her surprised. She was a colombian young lady who educated kids and (I guess) special children. In return she gave me a Book by Mr. Shappiro "La inteligencia emocional de los niños" which was great. Never saw he again, sincerely hope she´s doing great. Kisses and Hughs.

i saw this quote many years ago and loved it then. I still love it and as I look back over my life... I guess I have lived by this without even being aware. There are others in my life that have also made a difference in a child's life and to them I am grateful
