Whether you enjoyed going to classes or you were an overachiever, there must have been something that inspired you each day. One of my business professors constantly quoted "I don't care how much you know until I know how much you care." This quote, each time spoken, opened my eyes and encouraged me to reach for what I really wanted. It's amazing how much of a difference a few words can make. What quote inspired you the most?

mine was in philosopy class... my professor blurted out: "Whatever the mind conceived... it can achieve" since then i felt that if i had an idea and wanted to see something.. i know how much hard it is to do or how long the process is, i know it can be done.

"Perfect love is rare indeed - for to be a lover will require that you continually have the subtlety of the very wise, the flexibility of the child, the sensitivity of the artist, the understanding of the philosopher, the acceptance of the saint, the tolerance of the scholar and the fortitude of the certain." ~Leo Buscaglia~

I can't remember what my professors said although some said good stuff. I do remember a memory gem I learnt in the 6th grade that has stuck with me "The heights by great men reached and kept, were not attained by sudden flight, for they while their companions slept were toiling upwards through the night"

this phrase did not come from a teacher in a classroom but from a dear old friend that pass away about 5 years ago. he said this phrase about loving your family, friends and lifelong partner. he said 'when loving someone, love the person not only "because of" but also "inspite of" '.
