Thursday, June 9
Today is our first day fishing. Very exciting to put the nets out for the first time and then go out for a pick later in the day.
I thought I would pass along a few interesting and inspiring quotes from graduation ceremonies (taken from the Christian Science Monitor):
“I’m sure in your experiences..people have told you to make sure that you have something to ‘fall back on’. But I never understood that concept. If I’m going to fall, I don’t want to fall back on anything – except my faith I want to fall forward. I figure at least this way I’ll see what I’m going to hit.” – Denzel Washington at the University of Pennsylvania
“One thing I am certain about is that certainty and democracy don’t go together. If you look at the leaders of the last 10 years who have had ironclad certainty, who are htey? Joseph Stalin, Fidel Castor, Sadam Hussein, Hosni Mubarak, Muammar Qaddafi. Totalitarianism is the place for certainty, not democracy….Beware of certainty. Beware of ideas and theories that cannot be tested. Beware of people who know that they’re right.” – Ricahrd Stengel, Managing editor of Time magazine, at Wheaton College
