School really isn't prison, but by the reaction of students on the last day of classes, you would think they had just been released from one.

If the cost of failing at Plan A is unacceptably high, a back up plan is essential.
Pick your own Plan B to avoid others using their Plan B on you.
If you don't become useful to others, others will find another use for you...

While it is true that personal experience is the best teacher, learning from other peoples' experience is often cheaper and a lot less painful. Second hand experience is the best to learn from. If you don't, you will pay full tuition in the school of life.

"Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me" John 14:6
If you want to know God and go to heaven, it must be on his own terms, not yours.

When you are a little guy, and hair is the only thing standing between you and a dangerous world, a bad hair day is a very bad day. Little problems can be very real and very big problems to the small.

It's fun to explore new places and have new experiences, but remember this:
It's a lot easier getting into, than getting out of, some situations.
If you don't have a viable and reliable exit strategy, don't go there

They only have that one, simple, rolling up in a ball trick, but they do it very well.
They're still around after all these years, so it must be working for them.
If you could learn a lesson from this bug, I think it would be this:
Find a simple strategy and get really, really good at it.

Author Angus James caught this jungle perch in North Queensland, Australia.
"As I was pulling my lure from the fish to release back into the water I noticed two little eyes looking back at me from inside the fish's mouth. After capturing this picture, the little green tree frog leaped straight past my head onto the nearest tree. It was one of the coolest things I have seen in my life! This is one lucky frog!"
Sometimes I feel like that little frog. Saved by a miracle, grateful, but a bit shook up by it all.

Your friends can help you get what you can't get all by yourself. Be careful who your friends are because they will either multiply your successes or get you into more trouble than you could have ever gotten into by yourself.

There is certain pleasure in compassion. Sharing an umbrella with someone in need on a rainy day gives a sense of satisfaction. But it would be a lot more fun if they showed a little appreciation.

If the journey is more important than the destination, these small marathoners are winners indeed.They are having fun, staying in shape and avoiding boredom, all noble goals.
If the destination is more important than the journey, then we can laugh at them for being so stupid. Then we then go to work Monday and tread our own personal wheels.

|Total independence is great until you totally screw it up|
Freedom and independence are great, until you get stuck.
Then, all of a sudden, certain people you have
undervalued become very important.

Security doesn't come from being self sufficient.
It comes from being held by strong and loving hands.
" I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any
man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater
than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand." John 10:28-29
There are those who have learned and cultivated the art of appearing impressive.
Finding the right setting and placing yourself there gives that impression.
Being truly impressive is another matter.

Friends may return from trips with posed pictures of them pushing over
the Leaning Tower of Pisa or holding the Moon in the palm of their hands.
This little bear faces a tree much smaller than the Moon or the Tower of Pisa.
But with this difference: He is not posing. He is really going to climb that thing.
