In Honor of My First Mid-Term Exam as a Teacher! :)

“I would prefer even to fail with honor, than to win by cheating”

**Sophocles

I’ve Never Heard That Concept of “Jealousy” Before

“Jealousy is both reasonable and belongs to reasonable men, while envy is base and belongs to the base, for the one makes himself get good things by jealousy, while the other does not allow his neighbour to have them through envy.”

**Aristotle

Remembering Virtue

“I thought ten thousand swords must have leaped from their scabbards to avenge even a look that threatened her with insult. But the age of chivalry is gone. That of sophists, economists and calculators has succeeded; and the glory of Europe is gone forever.”

**Edmund Burke

Better Than Gucci

What is the use of dressing up in branded goods from head to toe? You as a person need to be high end.

Do Your Duty

“Honor thy father and thy mother” stands written among the three laws of most revered righteousness.”

**Aeschylus

A True Knight

“This is the oath of a Knight of King Arthur’s Round Table and should be for all of us to take to heart. I will develop my life for the greater good. I will place character above riches, and concern for others above personal wealth, I will never boast, but cherish humility instead, I will speak the truth at all times, and forever keep my word, I will defend those who cannot defend themselves, I will honor and respect women, and refute sexism in all its guises, I will uphold justice by being fair to all, I will be faithful in love and loyal in friendship, I will abhor scandals and gossip-neither partake nor delight in them, I will be generous to the poor and to those who need help, I will forgive when asked, that my own mistakes will be forgiven, I will live my life with courtesy and honor from this day forward.”

**King Arthur (Le Morte de Artur)

I Need No Companion

“I can live alone, if self-respect, and circumstances require me so to do. I need not sell my soul to buy bliss. I have an inward treasure born with me, which can keep me alive if all extraneous delights should be withheld, or offered only at a price I cannot afford to give.”

**Charlotte Bronte

Put Your Whole Heart In

“Extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice. Moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue.”
-Barry Goldwater

To Sell v. To Earn

“The superior man understands what is right; the inferior man

understands what will sell.”

–Confucius
