If you are not willing to learn, no one can help you.  If you are determined to learn, no one can stop you.  Zig Ziglar

My oldest daughter proved this saying.  When we first moved to a small, rural, area of South Georgia (after being in the suburbs of Washington, D. C.) my daughter came home from high school crying bitterly declaring she was never going to learn what she needed to know in the less-than-stellar educational system she found herself in.  I reminded her she possessed a library card and a computer and was perfectly capable of supplementing her own education if she needed to.  She took this advice to heart, went on to get her masters degree having secured seven scholarships at one point in her college career.  She now teaches high school in the greater-Atlanta area and is doing her best to give her students the best education experience she can provide.
