For many years, in addition to teaching Mathematics, I also taught Language Arts, and my students always had a notebook which we named ‘Wonderful Words’. Memorable words that people have spoken or written can inspire and encourage others, and so I will endeavour to feature lots of fine examples within my blog posts. Here is one favourite quotation:

“Teach us to give and not count the cost.”-St. Ignatius de Loyola


I also hope to give plenty of word puzzles.
