My father-in-law gave me this awesome quote and I thought I'd share it.
I'd rather be a could-be if I cannot be an are;
because a could-be is a maybe who is reaching for a star.
I'd rather be a has-been than a might-have-been, by far;
for a might have-been has never been,
but a has-been was once an are.
I'm going to give this quote to my students when I get back from spring break.
