Quote of the Day

I like this quote by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, who was born on this day in 1807.  As someone with a wanna be perfectionist nature, I've always been harder on myself than others have, because I know my potential and capabilities.

I absolutely love his handwriting!! I recently heard from my niece Amanda, who just started high school that they no longer teach cursive in school anymore.  What a shame! Cursive when done right is so beautiful.  I love his "D's".  When we lived in Australia, for every class that we had and every project that we did, we got a grade for our work, and then a grade for our penmanship and neatness.  We had a sheet with slanted lines that went under our paper, and you had to put one letter on each line, so everything was slanted and properly spaced out.
