In addition to the instructions to live by in my last post, I thought of another one that has stuck deep in my heart since I was a teenager. It was quoted by a man named Guy Doud. He was voted national teacher of the year in 1986. He is now a motivational speaker. I have never forgotten this statement, and I use it often in my house. I hope I can say that I have lived up to it as well.
People are more important than things.
