You didn’t do it on your own

None of us

got where we are

solely by pulling ourselves up

by our bootstraps.

We got here

because somebody

a parent,

a teacher,

an Ivy League crony

or a few nuns –

bent down and helped us pick up our boots.”

-Thurgood Marshall

Just a guy with an opinion and some time on my hands trying to find out where the sidewalk really does end.

    Mr Heard,

    I can not tell you how much I enjoy reading these quotes.
    Thank you so much for sharing some I hadn’t heard about. I truly appreciate it.
    I still remember sitting in 7th grade writing our own opinion of your daily quote on the board.
    I hope you are doing just fine.
