  • The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams. – Eleanor Roosevelt
  • Your brain has a capacity for learning that is virtually limitless, which makes every human a potential genius. – Michael Gelb
  • The arts and humanities define who we are as a people. That is their power — to remind us of what we each have to offer, and what we all have in common. To help us understand our history and imagine our future. To give us hope in the moments of struggle and to bring us together when nothing else will. – Michelle Obama
  • Teaching is not about being the “chief informant” but about helping “children teach us about what they know.” – Don Graves, A Fresh Look at Writing
