I’ve stumbled and succeeded. What can I say-I’m bipolar- but I found this quote a good reminder. Discipline in academics refers to intellectual specialty. Discipline, as in punishment, has monopolized the word.
“self discipline. Whether in terms of your diet, fitness, work ethic or relationships, self discipline is the number one trait needed to accomplish goals, lead a healthy lifestyle, and ultimately, be happy.”-Forbes
Discipline> to teach
Self-discipline> to teach oneself
Michael’s essay: In praise of librarians
— Read on www.cbc.ca/amp/1.4618213
In truth, librarians and elementary school teachers are the most important non-parental figures in a child’s life.
Mr. Chapstick isn’t just brave and wise to know what can injure his wellbeing but poignantly assesses what ails our current democratic era. Fight, debate, or campaign but always do it from intelligence and not ego or personal frustration. I think too much of the Internet discourse conflates issues from personal anger or confusion. Post whatever but try to reflect what you are truly saying and why. Thx Ian.
The White Rose (German: die Weiße Rose) was a non-violent, intellectual resistance group in Nazi Germany led by a group of students and a professor at the University of Munich.
The group conducted an anonymous leaflet and graffiti campaign which called for active opposition to the Nazi regime. Their activities started in Munich on June 27th, 1942, and ended with the arrest of the core group by the Gestapo on February 18th, 1943. They, as well as other members and supporters of the group who carried on distributing the pamphlets, faced show trials by the Nazi People’s Court (Volksgerichtshof), and many of them were sentenced to death or imprisonment.(wiki)
