William Parsons Quote

  • October 26, 2017

“I’ve never built any skyscrapers. I’ve never written any amazing novels or created any tremendous medical breakthroughs, but when I look at all of you, you are my skyscrapers, my amazing stories, my forever breakthroughs. I have poured out my life’s energies into those classrooms of our school, and in looking at all of you, seeing your happiness and knowing both what you have become and what you are becoming, you have given my life its meaning. I thank you all.” —William Parsons

    That quote basically sums up the success story of any successful teacher or professor who never gave up on his or her students. It is how his or her students have made their own success stories that stemmed from the classrooms of their dedicated teacher or professor. Truly, those types of teachers are really Godsend and I am very grateful and thankful for that.

    I would say this, at times you might see yourself as not useful or important compared to other people. We are not always the same but each person has a role in every person life. Focus with that!
