"The things you take for granted, someone else is praying for." - Unknown
Open your eyes and really see what you have and the opportunities you’ve been given for their true value. A good education is so important and can open so many doors. Grumble about having to wake up early, complain about all the homework, pretend that your teacher doesn’t care about you (or is “out to get you”)… But drink your coffee (or whatever gets you through the day) and BE PRESENT in that classroom (PARTICIPATE); turn off the TV, ignore Facebook, and look for the lesson in the assignment, don’t focus on the chore (don’t just study, LEARN); know that the most fulfilling and validating moment for a teacher is to see that spark of understanding light a flame of knowledge, curiosity, and passion in your eyes, a thirst for life and to know more (CHANGE YOUR LIFE, CHANGE THE WORLD FOR THE BETTER, DO GOOD WITH WHAT YOU KNOW). This little girl is going to change the world some day (maybe she already has, thanks to @HumansOfNY), and it all starts with her ABCDs, her 1234s, and her stunning red dress. “You can never be overdressed or overeducated.” - Oscar Wilde

Since I had to leave my books behind =’( my Kindle has been invaluable! I just finished reading these three books between yesterday and today, so instead I’ll post the next book on my reading list.
Now it’s your turn!
Take a selfie with the book you are currently reading and post it on your wall with the hashtag #cogeunmalditolibro. Reading is knowledge! (Knowledge is power! =P)

We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race And the human race is filled with passion. Medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits, and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for.

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty is the feel good film for the dreamer in all of us.
Imagination is not only the uniquely human capacity to envision that which is not, and therefore the fount of all invention and innovation. In its arguably most transformative and revelatory capacity, it is the power that enables us to empathize with humans whose experiences we have never shared. — J.K. Rowling
