What the teacher is, is more important than what he teaches.
Teaching is the profession that teaches all the other professions.
Careers are for people who wish to advance. I only want to survive, draw a paycheck. This is merely a job. I can take or leave this place. I start to imagine quitting and following my yet-to-be-determined passion.
Something Borrowed by Emily Giffin
A career is wonderful, but you can’t curl up with it on a cold night.
Discourage litigation. Persuade your neighbors to compromise whenever you can. As a peacemaker the lawyer has superior opportunity of being a good man. There will still be business enough.
You know you are on the road to success if you would do your job, and not be paid for it.
You can be pursuing a profession because your parents say it’s the best thing. You can be pursuing a profession because you think you will make a lot of money. You can be pursuing a profession because you think you are going to get a lot of attention. None of that will do you any good if you are not being honest with yourself.
Would you do your job and not be paid for it? I would do this job, and take on a second job just to make ends meet if nobody paid me. That’s how you know you are doing the right thing.
What I know is, is that if you do work that you love, and the work fulfills you, the rest will come.
Happiness is your dentist telling you it won’t hurt and then having him catch his hand in the drill.
You might be a nurse if you firmly believe that “too stupid to live” should be a diagnosis.
Whether a person is a male or female, a nurse is a nurse.
The trained nurse has become one of the great blessings of humanity, taking a place beside the physician and the priest….
Nursing would be a dream job if there were no doctors.
Nursing is an art: and if it is to be made an art, it requires an exclusive devotion as hard a preparation, as any painter’s or sculptor’s work; for what is the having to do with dead canvas or dead marble, compared with having to do with the living body, the temple of God’s spirit? It is one of the Fine Arts: I had almost said, the finest of Fine Arts.
