This is how we do it

“We sink to rise.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

  1. I had to chuckle at this one. Though it may be true, I can’t sink. I tried to dive once but my body kept bobbing back up. Unfortunately not all the way up. LOL

    1. Hahaha! It seems to me you need a diving instructor 😉

  2. Sort of like “he who is last shall be first.”

    1. I think it says that failure is not a loss. It’s a gain. You learn. You change. You grow.

      1. I like to use pretests with students who are honest and really want to move ahead. They see their weakness as a field to grow strong in (as I intend to see it as a field to teach). But there are many who see it as a defeat and become defensive. “We sink to rise” is a valuable philosophy. I agree.

      2. How we cope with failure and losing may affect our entire lifes. I hope all your studens like the quote, and rise every time they sink!
        big hugs, dear 🙂

I´d love to know what you think
