10 Classroom Door Quotes

A classroom door is a portal from the hallway to a consciousness of your choosing. Here are 10  quotations to make it count.

10. "Life is a song - sing it. Life is a game - play it. Life is a challenge - meet it. Life is a dream - realize it. Life is a sacrifice - offer it. Life is love - enjoy it."  -  Sai Baba (via BrainyQuote)

9. "The best way to predict the future is to create it." - Abraham Lincoln (Buzzquote)

8. "Curiosity about life in all of its aspects, I think, is still the secret of great creative people." - Leo Burnett

7. “The truly creative mind in any field is no more than this: A human creature born abnormally, inhumanly sensitive. To him... a touch is a blow, a sound is a noise, a misfortune is a tragedy, a joy is an ecstasy, a friend is a lover, a lover is a god, and failure is death. Add to this cruelly delicate organism the overpowering necessity to create, create, create -- so that without the creating of music or poetry or books or buildings or something of meaning, his very breath is cut off from him. He must create, must pour out creation. By some strange, unknown, inward urgency he is not really alive unless he is creating.” - Pearl Buck (via GoodReads) 

6. "Be patient, be calm, be confident."  -Paulette Rioux (via "Don't Throw Us Away)

5. "Ask yourself, 'What would a high achieving person of character do?' Then do that."  -Todd Finley (7 Degrees of Education)

4. “Because you are alive, everything is possible.” ― Thích Nhất Hạnh (via GoodReads)

3. "Either you deal with what is the reality, or you can be sure that the reality is going to deal with you." -Alex Haley

2. "And this I believe: that the free, exploring mind of the individual human is the most valuable thing in the world. And this I would fight for:  the freedom of the mind to take any direction it wishes, undirected. And this I must fight against: any idea, religion, or government which limits or destroys the individual. This is what I am and what I am about.” ― John Steinbeck, East of Eden

1. "A genius is the monk most like himself." Thelonious Monk
