I have no inspiration to write at the moment. What is going on? Perhaps I am more in a collecting-of-thoughts mode and not an expressive mode. Anyway, here is another George Washington Carver quote. We are using these for copywork, along with some Laura Ingalls Wilder quotes that came in the paper doll book Mariel purchased in Mansfield.

"Selfishness and self are at the bottom of a lot of troubles in the world. So many people fail to realize that serving God and one's fellowmen are the only worthwhile things in life. It is service that counts." --Dr. George Washington Carver

(Side note: GWC did not patent his inventions because he wanted his ideas to benefit everyone. He died a respectable man, but not wealthy, and served God and his fellow man to the end.)
