I was really shy when I was a child, very self-conscious about taking up space or being an attention seeker. I was the kind of kid who was really good at homework.
Nothing is more powerful for your future than being a gatherer of good ideas and information. That's called doing your homework.
Being humble matters.
The fragrance of flowers spreads only in the direction of the wind. But the goodness of a person spreads in all directions.
I like a teacher who gives you something to take home to think about besides homework.
