“You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it.”

“Courage is not having the strength to go on; it is going on when you don’t have the strength.”

About Jennie

I have been teaching preschool for over thirty years. This is my passion. I believe that children have a voice, and that is the catalyst to enhance or even change the learning experience. Emergent curriculum opens young minds. It's the little things that happen in the classroom that are most important and exciting. That's what I write about. I am highlighted in the the new edition of Jim Trelease's bestselling book, "The Read-Aloud Handbook" because of my reading to children. My class has designed quilts that hang as permanent displays at both the National Liberty Museum in Philadelphia, and the Fisher House at the Boston VA Hospital.

    Charles does it again! Nice reblog, Jennie. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. I have come to believe that courage (and success for that matter) has as much to do with perseverance as brilliance. No surprise both Roosevelt and Churchill are older as they came to that same conclusion.

  3. Charles does a great job of finding quotes. Thanks for sharing, Jennie. 🙂

    I agree with you all, Charles does find some wonderful quotes and I have copied many.
    For me Maya Angelou’s quote rang so true today.

    Great share Jennie

    Excellent choices! They were three brilliant minds and I repeat many quotes from each of them. Thank-you!

  6. This could not have come at a better time for me as I am struggling to help my significant other, Richard, through his multiple illnesses and surgeries. Last week we were in ER three days in a row all day and today we were back, not in ER but in his doctor’s office in the VA. Honestly, it is hard for me to struggle to keep rising in the mornings and making the trips and worrying and advocating and all the other things that go with that. It is good to read quotes like these when we are having challenges in our lives, and I don’t think any of us get through without them. Thank you Charles and Jennie for bringing this to us.
