Week of January 10, 2011 Announcements

We are taught you must blame your father, your sisters,
your brothers, the school,
the teachers - but never blame yourself.
It's never your fault.
But it's always your fault,
because if you wanted to change
you're the one who has got to change
Katharine Hepburn

Week of January 3, 2011 Announcements

“I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round,
as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable time;
the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year,
when men and women seem by one consent to open
their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them
as if they really were fellow passengers to the grave,
and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys.”
— Charles Dickens
