Quotes for the Week of August 20th - 24th

Monday Quote

Arianna Clayton, 8th grade

Tuesday Quote
Great leaders seek knowledge.

Wednesday Quote
One day I had a problem with a paper that was due very soon! I tried to write it several times, but not one thing seemed to work! I decided to seek counsel from my parents, especially my mom because she went to college and wrote several papers. I waited on her to get home from work so I could ask her face-to-face. She was able to help me understand how my paper needed to be written.
Lillian Baker, 6th grade

Thursday Quote
Knowledge is the most important thing a person can own. It gives independence and success.
Abby Moore, 12th grade

Friday Quote
Even fools are thought wise if they keep silent, and discerning if they hold their tongues.
King Solomon
