This is the first day of classes here, and it’s nice to see new and returning faces, full of hope and anticipation. One of the nice things about working in a college is all the beginnings we have: every few months a new semester and a new start.
So in the spirit of beginning anew, I’d like to share some of my favorite quotations:
“All things are difficult before they are easy.”–Thomas Fuller
“We cannot start over but we can start now & make a new ending.”- Zig Ziglar
“You can learn new things at any time in your life if you’re willing to be a beginner. If you actually learn to like being a beginner, the whole world opens up to you.”Barabra Sher
“Take the first step in faith. You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.”–Martin Luther King, Jr.
“It is our attitude at the beginning of a difficult undertaking which, more than anything else, will determine its successful outcome.” William James
