Quotes to ponder today


I read this African proverb quoted by Greg Mortensen: "If you educate a boy, you educate an individual. But if you educate a girl, you educate a community."

Another quote from this author of "Three Cups of Tea" is Judith Campbell's: "When your heart speaks, take good notes."

Off to buy the book.

I love these quotes. The second one especially is brilliant and the first I've believed all along.

I just found your blog. Three cups of Tea is one of my favorite books. I hope you enjoyed it. I think Greg Mortensen should be nominated for a Nobel Peace prize.
