Blog Post #6 Write about Your Personal Philosophy

Having been inundated with papers to grade during the past several weeks, I’m feeling tired and uninspired to write today. Instead, I’d like to post a quotation I found on Facebook, today. Students–and others who know me well–will appreciate the sentiment and the words. Five precious extra credit points for anyone who comments below with a thoughtful explanation why this quotation is so meaningful for me.

GO INTO THE WORLD AND DO WELL.

BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY, GO INTO THE WORLD AND DO GOOD.

  1. There are several reasons why this quotation is so meaningful to you. You have taught your students the different in the meaning between good and well. When using well, you are describing someone’s health. When using the word good, that is achieving like a goal. you are so passionate about the success of your students, so they secede in their educational goals.

  2. I do not see an expiration date! It doesn’t hurt to try! 🙂
    This particular quote actually reminds me of you. I do not know you well yet, but I do know you made me tear up the first day of class and gave me a reminder of why I was actually there. (Thank you for that by the way) You went into the world and did well for yourself and as a result you are doing good for others, not only by bettering their writing skills, but also by truly caring for them. Ultimately, you are trying to give your students the same advice. If everyone did well but no good the world wouldn’t be a very happy place.
