Students and Mentors

Words of Wisdom

“Be what you would have your students to be.” – words from Thomas Carlyle

“A mentor is not a person who can do the work better than his students. He or she is a person who can get his student to do the work better than he/she can.” – words from Fred Smith

“Sometimes your plan doesn’t work, if that happens don’t change your goal, change the plan. Never give up your goal, because accomplishing your goal is near.” – words from Mildred Wilson

“Always have someone in your life who is mentally, emotionally and financially on a higher level than you, because that person can bring you up to his/her level if you listen and learn from their wisdom and experiences.” – words from Mildred Wilson

“You can change your life around when you get sick and tired of being sick and tired.” – words from Ernestine Jones Powell

DON'T BE THIS PERSON. “You are the smartest dumbest person that I know.” - words from Ernestine Jones Powell



When things go wrong as they sometimes will
When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill
When the funds are low, and the debts are high
And you want to smile, but you have-to sigh
When care is pressing you down a bit
Rest if you must, but don’t you quit

Success is failure turned inside out
The silver line of the clouds of doubt
And you can never tell how close you are
It may be near when it seems afar
So, stick to the fight when your hardest hit
It’s when things go wrong that you mustn’t quit…
