The more knowledge you have the better the job you will be able to get. The better the job, the more money you will make. The more money you make the less stress you will have. The less stress you have the better you will feel and healthier in mind, body and soul. – Paulette Le Pore Motzko

We are all sculptors and painters, and our material is our own flesh and bones. – Henry David Thoreau

I spotted this wonderful quote in my vocabulary builder daily word and had to open my WordPress app on my Android MyTouch Smart Phone and capture it.

Henry David Thoreau is one of my favorite authors and my love of his works began with Honors English class and my fantastic teacher Mrs. Covington telling me how he wrote the book “Waldon”. Thoreau wanted to go back to nature, and not use electricity, and refrained from progress. He wanted to get “back to nature” and lived in a cabin with only a kerosine lamp to light his way as he wrote what would be one of the great classic literary works of all time- Waldon.

If you weren’t lucky enough to have the great English teachers that opened my world to how they wrote and why and understanding what the great writer’s motivations were….helping to understand and appreciate the book or poem more fully…check it out from the library, or you might find it on GoogleBooks on the Google Play section. Many books in the public domain are available to read on your IPOD, IPAD or computer for free or for a few dollars..most under $5.

I often remember the words Mrs. Covington told me about writing and creating. She said these to me that I tell young adults writing term papers and especially people who hated English or writing or reading to inspire them.

“If you write in a journal each day you will become a better writer. When you read each day you will be exposed to new ideas, concepts and words building your broad view of the world and people in it. The better writer you are the better speaker you will be, getting better jobs and having more friends and a wider circle of people around you. It is all connected.”

Everybody hated the English classes and sat falling asleep in class or talking behind Mrs. Covington’s back but she was a friend of mine and her words were gold to me. I saw the merit and value in everything she told me…and she was right.

She have me a white Buxton jewelery box I for my graduation in my senior year I still have to this day and wish she could see what all those book reviews and grammar exercises bought me.

I am thankful to all those who said NO to me. It’s because of them I did it myself. – Albert Einstein

Just remember this when you come in contact with an obstacle. It gives you the chance to learn to do it yourself.
I began creating my own web sites years ago, because I couldn’t afford to pay a web designer to create a site for my company.

Just remember Albert Einstein and pick up a book, magazine or take a class and go beyond what you are.
