day 295: hope for the harvest

Dear Dr. Gibb,

Thank you for thinking teachers are good people that can change lives.  Thank you for inspiring us and for cheering us on.  And thank you for your closing remarks in class today where you quoted Albert Schweitzer, who said:

I will plant the crop and hope for the best.

Your fellow sojourner,
Karen

Great quote. I'm fairly certain that we actually see very little of what we sow. Hopefully, we are planting those seeds far and wide.

Such an awesome quote! And I'm glad that, although you won't be reaping the harvest yourself, you did get to see some sprouting!!

I'm sure you have made a difference in so many lives...just singing to your students would be enough to move them. You will be remembered by many children and respected by their parents. It's obvious....

I'm deeply smitten by that quote. It's the sort that has the power to lift a downcast chin. What a beautiful perspective.

I love the quote! A LOT.

That is an amazing quote. Even though it's hard to swallow sometimes. It's enough to know we had a hand in the harvest by sowing.

Great quote, great reminder. I'll remember that next time Primary is driving me nuts. Just sowing the seeds.
