Meaningful Quotes and Writings

November 1, 1982

Writing was never my strongest skill when I was young. Over the years my mastery of writing has improved.


A chronological timeline of meaningful quotes and writings.



The first critical experience - Mr. Sharp - 1980 -So it does not surprise anyone that I earned my first F in English c/o of my junior high school teacher, Mr. Sharp. It was an unannounced (announced) pop quiz on a Monday. He chuckled. Laughed. Nice one Mr. Sharp. Enjoy your vineyards you talk so much about in class.


The second critical experience - Mrs. Colby - a very harsh grade, a D. She said I was not a good writer - 1983. Odd, in college the same first years papers were graded with an A. Yes, I resubmitted the exact papers in our exact assignments . Interesting.

  "Do not abuse high performers"
