    Project Wisdom

    Good morning, North Junior High. Here are a few words of wisdom.

    Ever noticed that the hardest thing about a school project is getting started? Two thousand, five hundred years ago, Lao-tzu (la OUT zu), ancient Chinese master, said:

    A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.

    Five hundred years later, Horace, a Latin poet, said it this way:

    He who has begun has half done. Dare to be wise; begin!

     Great minds think alike! So remember, if you are having a difficult time starting a project--at school or at home--the first step is usually the hardest. Just do it!

    Make it a great day . . . or not. The choice is yours.
