Quote of the Day

Quote of the Week:
"The greatest lessons I learned from my father didn't come from lectures or discipline or even time spent together. What has stuck with me is his example. From watching, I chose whether to be or not to be like him."

My Quote in an Oxford Textbook

May I share something truly neat that happened to me?
Okay......so, I recently received this Oxford textbook in the mail.  

It's a course companion for a philosophy class.  No, I'm not taking a class at Oxford (I wish) and neither are my sons (not yet anyway.)  I was actually aware the book would eventually be shipped to me—a free copy provided by the wonderful people who put it together—and I was oh so excited to receive it! 

The very first thing I did, of course, was open up the pages to chapter seven, entitled, 'Identity.'  Now why in the world would I rush to do that?  

Because my quote is printed 

on the first page introducing the chapter!

How cool is that?

Yes, I'm feeling pretty happy.  It’s kind of a neat thing to see my words printed in an Oxford textbook along with my website typed in a footnote (www.harrowbeth.com.)  And concluding the chapter, my name among references cited!    

Silly me to be so excited, but I am.  

Thanks for taking a moment to smile with me.
