I have an idea: how about you do a new inspirational quote in a different language each day, and that way you can make a new post each day, and people can translate it into the language they're learning.

"Heroes aren’t always the ones who win. They’re the ones who lose, sometimes. But they keep fighting, they keep coming back. They don’t give up. That’s what makes them heroes."

'' just be yourself no matter what people think of you''

A trick that everyone abhors, In little girls is slamming doors, A wealthy banker's little daughter, Who lived at palace green, bayswater, By name of Rebbeca Offendort, Was given to this furious sport,

She would deliberately go, And slam the door like billy-o, To make her uncle Jacob start, She was not really bad at heart, Just a little rude and wild, She was an aggravating child,

It happened that there was a marble bust, Of Abraham sitting just, Above the door this little lamb, Had carefully prepared to slam, And it came, It knocked her flat, It laid her out, she looked like that.

Here is an interesting poem that I memorized for school. Wondering if anyone else found any meaning to it.

"The more often we see the things around us - even the beautiful and wonderful things - the more they become invisible to us. That is why we often take for granted the beauty of this world: the flowers, the trees, the birds, the clouds - even those we love. Because we see things so often, we see them less and less." ~ Joseph B. Wirthlin

A lot of people think that gifts are like presents that we might get on our birthday or Christmas if you celebrate, but if you really think about it everything around you is gift whether it's clean water, a nice warm bed, or even a younger sibling. We should always be thankful for what we have because there will always be another person that will have less than you. Let this message be an eye opener and a reminder to always be thankful for what you have because there are others who don't have as much as you. Always be kind and thankful, because it makes a big difference. Also next time you use water use it wisely because there are others who don't have clean water and because of that they die from either thirst or toxins while you keep the water on as you brush your teeth.
