Aphorism for today.

Easy Choices > Hard Life. Hard Choices > Easy Life. - Jerzy Gregorek

In ESL classes, life lessons come up all the time. Learning language to express and understand what we experience matters because then we can participate in meaningful conversations about life. This year, we have adopted Jerzy's aphorism as a class motto. We have engaged in rich discussions about the benefits of making hard choices. Students have applied this mentality to their lives on several occasions. I am in awe of their accomplishments despite challenging odds. We have decided living by this motto works. It makes all the difference!
