Every week I come across nearly 3 weeks worth of stuff I would love to share here on the T4D. Today I want to share some of the back logged e-mails and quotes. So if you are a quick quote person… you can read and move on. If you want a bit more fun for your next stretch break…well it’s here too. Including a video that my 10 year old Brooklyn told me I just “Had to see.” It involves a marching band and I was sure impressed. Thank you all…as many of these things come from you. These first couple are a couple that I first shared on Instagram…an app that I am liking more and more.
“You probably wouldn’t worry about what people think of you if you could know how seldom they do.” - Olin Miller
“The problem is not that there are problems. The problem is expecting otherwise and thinking that having problems is a problem.” - Theodore Rubin
( I so agree with this and loved what this company decided to so about the following problem of girls not pursuing the fields of science, technology and engineering.)
Fewer than 3 in 10 graduates in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics are women. And barely 1 in 10 actual engineers are women. Early in a girl’s life, the toys marketed to her are usually things that don’t encourage her to enter those fields. GoldieBlox intends to change that by teaching them while they are young that these fields can be fun — and apparently epic, by the looks of this super-genius 2-minute video. Watch and learn. ~Adam Mordecai
If 3 Little Girls Did This To My House, I’d Do Everything I Could To Get Them Full Rides To Stanford
“It is very hard to be simple enough to be good.” - Ralph Waldo Emerson
(with 40 million views… to back it up… this to me is a perfect illustration of simple enough to be good…or GREAT)
And here is the “Dad you gotta see this.” from my Brooklyn. Is a marching band in her future? No, Biology she says.
