Learning to let go should be learned before learning to get. Life should be touched, not strangled. You’ve got to relax, let it happen at times, and at others move forward with it.
The practice of patience toward one another, the overlooking of one another's defects, and the bearing of one another's burdens is the most elementary condition of all human and social activity in the family, in the professions, and in society.
Lawrence G. Lovasik
Georges-Louis Leclerc Buffon
Face your deficiencies and acknowledge them; but do not let them master you. Let them teach you patience, sweetness, insight... When we do the best we can, we never know what miracle is wrought in our life, or in the life of another.
When you have a sense of your own identity and a vision of where you want to go in your life, you then have the basis for reaching out to the world and going after your dreams for a better life.
A. A. Milne
Time always seems long to the child who is waiting - for Christmas, for next summer, for becoming a grownup: long also when he surrenders his whole soul to each moment of a happy day.

All summer, I waited apprehensively for the letter. Through the hot days in June and sticky days in July, I ran out front to the mailbox and returned inside empty-handed and disappointed. After what felt like years, the crisp white envelope sealed with a blue Hofstra University crest finally arrived. No, this...

Just saw the "Patience" commercial with the little boy walking in the concrete. Reminds me of how I need to be when working with my students. haha Loved it!
I see alot of your commercials on our AFN channels. My favorite one is the little boy walking in the freshly smoothed concrete and the fella at the end. It makes me laugh and smile each and everytime I see it. Thank you.
