Principal's Words of Wisdom

“Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire,
you will what you imagine and at last you create what you will."
--George Bernard Shaw

“All truly wise thoughts have been thought already thousands of times;
but to make them truly ours, we must think them over again honestly,
till they take root in our personal experience."
--Johann von Goethe

“Choose again.
Pretend that you are enlightened.
Pretend that you are loved by God.
Pretend that you are perfect just the way you are.
Take a deep breath now and PRETEND WHAT IS TRUE.
Then everything will make sense.
When you pretend something that is true, then you immediately become
that Truth.
First the energy of God descends upon the Earth, then it pretends
whatever it wants to be, then it ascends back to its source. You are God
pretending to be whatever you are right now. Do you understand what
this means? You have allowed yourself to descend, but by pretending to
be less than what you are, you have not ascended back to God."
--Thomas (Indigo Child)

“Love is much more fundamental than any kind of thinking or believing.
It is the root and basis of who you are, at the most fundamental level.
This means that anything other than love as an expression of your being
is artificial and unnatural and is a result of not knowing who you are."
--Bill Harris

“Too Slow for those who Wait,
Too Swift for those who Fear,
Too Long for those who Grieve,
Too Short for those who Rejoice,
But for those who Love
Time is not.”
--Henry Van Dyke

“The man who is aware of himself is henceforward independent; and he
is never bored, and life is only too short, and he is steeped through and
through with a profound yet temperate happiness. He alone lives, while
other people, slaves of ceremony, let life slip past them in a kind of
--Virginia Woolf

“It is not the strongest of the species who survive, not the most
intelligent, but those who are the most adaptive to change."
--Charles Darwin

“Love is unconditional acceptance. That quality is also our essential
nature, who we really are."
--Peter Shepherd

"The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen, nor
touched... but are felt in the heart."
--Helen Keller

“The surest way to corrupt a youth is to instruct him to hold in higher
regard those who think alike than those who think differently."
