“Happiness is something that just happens because of the arrangement of circumstances, but joy endures in spite of circumstances.”
John Hunter

“The ability to overcome failure--to live through it and move on--is crucial. If we are not willing to face failure--if we don't have the skills to survive it--we have precluded any real creativity or risk. Failure may never become our friend, but if we are to do meaningful work, perhaps failure needs to be our companion.”
John Hunter, World Peace and Other 4th-Grade Achievements

“The teacher calls on the first student whose hand went up, and everybody else understands that their participation is no longer required, and so they may immediately disengage.”
John Hunter, World Peace and Other 4th-Grade Achievements
