Deciding a favorite is not easy. Deciding a favorite on the spot is even harder. That is a good thing, but it also can be a bad thing. If we cannot decide on a favorite, then that means there are too many good things to choose from for us to be able to decide a favorite. (Are we grateful for that?) However, it also can be a bad thing when the teacher asks you stand up and tell the class, on the spot, what your favorite thing about the summer was.

People tend not to see the invisible. Rephrase: people tend to ignore the invisible, even if they know it's there. Consider our hands, for instance. When we can see visible dirt on our hands, we wash them. But our hands are almost always filled with germs, germs that cause disease. But we don't wash our hands constantly even though they technically are just as "dirty" or "dirtier" than muddy or visibly dirty hands. We ignore the germs on our hands because they are invisible. People are similar. Just because they don't have any visible skills doesn't mean they don't have invisible ones that are more powerful than the visible ones.
Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself.
Earthquakes are more dangerous than tornadoes. Why? Because earthquakes are difficult to predict, giving people less time to evacuate, giving people less time to prepare.
They say evil and good must be balanced. (At least, popular media does.) Which is true, better a balance of good and evil than all evil. But wouldn't all good be better? Why have 50% of the world murdering each other instead of 100% of the world living perfectly? Why half the world in crime and poverty and half the world wealthy and healthy? All good is better than half good.
There's a difference between bravery and stupidity, between funny and idiotic, between carefree and careless, between cool and offensive, between liberty and lawlessness, between honest and insulting, between confidence and pride, between compliments and flatterings, and much, much more. Be wise. Know the difference.
I hate it when people break the rules. I really do. But what is more annoying is when nothing happens to those who don't obey the rules. No, the breakage of the rules doesn't always effect me. In fact, the rules may not be needed at all. What irks me is that they call it a rule. Because a rule isn't a rule if it isn't enforced. It's a suggestion.
The hardest part to write in an essay is the beginning and the end. The part people judge a piano performance by most, is the beginning and the end. The hardest part of going to bed is going to bed and getting out of bed. The hardest part of swimming is getting into the water and getting out of the water. The hardest part of a project is starting a project, and finishing it.
