another quote

so i told myself i'd stop quoting so much and actually really blog one of these days, but today isn't the day. can't help but share this one.

professor (if you know where i work this makes it way better) says, "honesty will get you no where."
this is the same professor that could never remember which class he was teaching. also the same professor missed the day of our final exam because he was taking some colleagues out for In and Out. no kidding.

good words

Leo Buscaglia : The majority of us lead quiet, unheralded lives as we pass through this world. There will most likely be no ticker-tape parades for us, no monuments created in our honor. But that does not lessen our possible impact, for there are scores of people waiting for someone just like us to come along; people who will appreciate our compassion, our unique talents. Someone who will live a happier life merely because we took the time to share what we had to give. Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have a potential to turn a life around. It's overwhelming to consider the continuous opportunities there are to make our love felt.

great quote

overheard from one professor to another:

"i wouldn't call it sneaky. i'd rather call it 'wise.' wise sounds much better..."
