Quote for the Week

“Anxiety checks learning.  An overall feeling of inferiority, a temporary humiliation, a fit of depression, defiance or anger, a sense of being rejected, and many other emotional disturbances affect the learning process.  The reverse is true; a feeling of well-being and being respected by others stimulates an alert mind, willingness to participate, and an attitude conducive to learning."
