first day of teaching tomorrow


in other words:
I love movies like Coach Carter.

Is it sad that the only times I really want to be a teacher is when I watch inspirational teaching movies? -____-

 Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."

Marianne Williamson (except the lady herself is sorta quack IMHO)

mixed feelings about this quote. part of me really loves it / it’s used to spur the underdogs, but i think humans are so used to thinking we rock / i don’t know if this is good for it!
