Quotes and Life Lessons

Happy Homecoming Week!  Before we get to today’s post, a few reminders: I have FFA paperwork from most of you, but need FFA dues from a lot of you  yet! Keep – or start, working o the BIG Idea, your Soybean Video, SAE records, and Leadership CDE stuff.  Just a note – beans are really starting to dry down and turn yellow.  If you want green, growing Soybeans in your video – better get some footage or still photos of beans now before this freeze that they’re talking about for Friday night!

The required fact for your Soybean videos is:

“Over 25 years of independent research shows there is no evidence of harm to human health or deaths from consumption of GM foods.”

It’s been, WOW, a LONG time (1980) since I graduated from high school!  I still remember the quote that our class chose as our motto.  “Far away there in the stars are my highest aspirations.  I may not reach them, but I can look up, see their beauty, believe in them, and try”.  I reflect on those words pretty frequently.

For today:


Do you recall where or how you first learned the lesson or read or heard the quote? How has this lesson or quote changed your thinking?  Has it been something that you have shared with anyone else that has a common goal?  Tell me all about it!
