S: Rosa A. Smith: A Leader Growing Leaders

FC: A Leader Growing Leaders

1: "Education is the point at which we decide whether we love the world enough to assume responsibility for it and by the same token to save it from that ruin, which, except for renewal, except for the coming of the new and the young, would be inevitable. An education, too, is where we decide whether we love our children enough not to expel them from our world and leave them to their own devices, nor to strike from their hands their choice of undertaking something new, something unforseen by us, but to prepare them in advance for the task of renewing a common world." Hannah Arendt

2: "Education is more than a luxury; it is a responsibility that society owes to itself." Robin Cook

3: "Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other." John Fitzgerald Kennedy

4: "Life shrinks or expands in proportion to ones courage." Anais Nin

5: "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world." Nelson Mandela | "The secret of education lies in respecting the pupil." Ralph Waldo Emerson

9: “It is not who you attend school with but who controls the school you attend.” Nikki Giovanni

10: "Great things are done by a series of small things brought together." Vincent Van Gogh

11: Black Boys Play the Classics By Toi Derricotte The most popular “act” in Penn Station is the three black kids in ratty sneakers & T-shirts playing two violins and a cello—Brahms. White men in business suits have already dug into their pockets as they pass and they toss in a dollar or two without stopping. Brown men in work-soiled khakis stand with their mouths open, arms crossed on their bellies as if they themselves have always wanted to attempt those bars. One white boy, three, sits cross-legged in front of his idols—in ecstasy— their slick, dark faces, their thin, wiry arms, who must begin to look like angels! Why does this trembling pull us? A: Beneath the surface we are one. B: Amazing! I did not think that they could speak this tongue.

12: "If you can laugh together, you can work together" Robert Orben

14: “Education is all a matter of building bridges.” Ralph Ellison

17: "Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself." John Dewey

18: "Leaders must be close enough to relate to others, but far enough ahead to motivate them." John Maxwell

21: Each day we go about our business, walking past each other, catching each other’s eyes or not, about to speak or speaking. All about us is noise. All about us is noise and bramble, thorn and din, each one of our ancestors on our tongues. Someone is stitching up a hem, darning a hole in a uniform, patching a tire, repairing the things in need of repair. Someone is trying to make music somewhere, with a pair of wooden spoons on an oil drum, with cello, boom box, harmonica, voice. A woman and her son wait for the bus. A farmer considers the changing sky. A teacher says, Take out your pencils. Begin. We encounter each other in words, words spiny or smooth, whispered or declaimed, words to consider, reconsider. We cross dirt roads and highways that mark the will of some one and then others, who said I need to see what’s on the other side. I know there’s something better down the road. We need to find a place where we are safe. We walk into that which we cannot yet see. | Say it plain: that many have died for this day. Sing the names of the dead who brought us here, who laid the train tracks, raised the bridges, picked the cotton and the lettuce, built brick by brick the glittering edifices they would then keep clean and work inside of. Praise song for struggle, praise song for the day. Praise song for every hand-lettered sign, the figuring-it-out at kitchen tables. Some live by love thy neighbor as thyself, others by first do no harm or take no more than you need. What if the mightiest word is love? Love beyond marital, filial, national, love that casts a widening pool of light, love with no need to pre-empt grievance. In today’s sharp sparkle, this winter air, any thing can be made, any sentence begun. On the brink, on the brim, on the cusp, praise song for walking forward in that light. | Praise Song for the Day By Elizabeth Alexander A Poem for Barack Obama’s Presidential Inauguration
