Wisdom of the Week
Quotations from Confucius

"To be fond of knowlege is better than merely to acquire it; to take delight in it is still better than merely to be fond of it." - Quotations from Confucius

Learning is more than just memorizing facts and figures. One of the most important things that we can impart to our children is a love for learning and a desire to soak in all that life has to offer. Life is an adventure and teaching our children to embrace it and find joy in life's lessons is the greatest legacy we can leave them. May you always find joy in being your child's most important teacher.
