This is the perfect mantra for school communicators – SCN Encourager

These words of wisdom are only about 2500 years old

Screen Shot 2016-08-07 at 3.17.49 PMYou’ve got to hand it to Sophocles…

the ol’ Greek philosopher and playwright.

He nailed it when he taught,

“Always desire to learn something useful.”

We school leaders and communicators should claim this maxim as our own.

Isn’t this the best way to approach every day?

Besides, what’s Sophocles gonna do to stop us?

Call attorney Sam Bernstein at 1-800-Call Sam?

Nah, I think we’re safe from any legal intellectual property challenges.

That’s one reason why I like quoting the “ancients.”

They’re cheap, proven non-stop observers of society, and had “heads of rock.”

Screen Shot 2016-08-07 at 3.46.15 PMIt was my birthday yesterday,

and Cindy remarked I share these characteristics with Sophocles.

Normally, I wouldn’t have minded the dig.

But I was peeved she purchased a cake without paying for the personalization.

It was already tough enough being the “oldest person in the room” at our gathering last night of family and friends.

And my youngest brother sure didn’t help any, either.

He asked me if Sophocles and I played high school baseball together long ago back in Flint.

That one really got under my skin.

Especially since I couldn’t remember.
