I walked into class this morning and wrote these remarkable words on the board. I said nothing about it. I didn’t draw attention to it in any way. I didn’t discuss it. I just wrote it on the board. It was the best thing I taught all week, and I didn’t say a word. “To achieve all that is possible, we must attempt the impossible. To be as much as we can be, we must dream of being more.”
