There are so many holidays happening in February – President’s Day, Chinese New Year which coincides with Valentine’s day on February 14th and yesterday was the first day of Black History Month. I know that I don’t need to tell you why it’s important to celebrate the differences and likenesses of all people who have made this country, and world great. Tell me I don’t. Ok I won’t but I’ll quote Irish novelist George Moore, “After all, there is but one race: humanity.” Well said George.

Some more eloquent passages to help inspire you this month:


Focusing your life solely on making a buck shows acertain poverty of ambition. It asks too little of yourself. Becauseit’s only when you hitch your wagon to something larger than yourselfthat you realize your true potential. – Barack Obama

I’ve learned that people will forget what you said,people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how youmade them feel. -Maya Angelou

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hatecannot drive out hate; only love can do that. -Martin Luther King, Jr.

We should emphasize not Negro History, but the Negro in history.What we need is not a history of selected races or nations, but thehistory of the world void of national bias, race hate, and religiousprejudice. -Carter Woodson

The past is a ghost, the future a dream. All we ever have is now. -Bill Cosby

Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one hasreached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome while tryingto succeed. -Booker T. Washington
