You know what the sad thing is? Everything she's saying is "just" common sense. Yet precious few people think them. The world would be a better place with a few more people who think like her, I can tell you that much.

It is common sense but for someone her age to be so self assured is uncommon, in my opinion. That is what is so remarkable about her. That is why I am proud of her and that is what I want to try to be myself. More self assured, self confident...that is a worthy goal I think.

Indeed. There are precious few who would come out and say these things in an environment where it might cost work. It's a matter of principle and I respect anyone who stands by theirs.

I agree, most of those are or should be fair-minded common sense.

Never wear underwear with holes in them just in case you are in an accident and nurses have to take off your trousers. (so a true story!)

I have pages of quotes from things I've read over the years. I'll lead off with this one:

Just in that regard a piece of wisdom from a former coworker:

From my maths teacher: Don't reach for the stars if you cannot reach them.  ::) Apparently, the answer to the problem he was asking us to answer when he said that was undefined or there's no solution to it. The quote simply means that there are times when something is impossible and so don't exert and waste your efforts on it.

This reminds me much of the Aesop's fable involving a turtle who was very determined to learn flying. So he asked an eagle to teach him. The eagle looked at him and said that he isn't made for flying. However, the turtle kept insisting so the eagle took him up to the sky and at the height, dropped the turtle, leading him to his death. *shudders*
