If you plan for one year, plant rice. If you plan for 10 years, plant a tree. If you plan for 100 years, educate a child.
Chinese Proverb

Our progress as a nation can be no swifter than our progress in education.
John Fitzgerald Kennedy

Come to the edge
We can’t, we are afraid
Come to the edge
We can’t, we will fall
And they came to the edge
And he pushed them
And they flew.

A professor can never better distinguish himself in his work than by encouraging a clever pupil, for the true discoverers are among them, as comets amongst the stars.

A teacher effects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops.
Henry Adams
