This quote is outstanding for teaching students to develop positive habits and apply them to their lives. It is one of MY personal favorites; unfortunately, the author is unknown. The quote will surely give those who read it food for thought, young and old. It could possibly be laminated and posted on the wall for simple "decor", or used on a bulletin-board, or food for thought at the bottom of work-sheets; the possibilities are endless. Have a great time with it.
