Inspirational Quotes conjured up in TU Delft...!

"When the Lord closes a door, somewhere He opens a window."
 - Reverend Mother from Sound of Music

"I say when the Lord closes a door, you open it. If the Lord locks it, you pick that lock. You wouldn't want to look like an idiot trying to climb through the window just because God was in a goofy mood, would you? No, no you would not."
 - Christopher Watson

The greatness of a nation and it's moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated

Things to learn from a dog

I found this on the internet. If a dog was the teacher you would learn things like:

  1. When loved ones come home, always run to greet them.
  2. Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride.
  3. Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure Ecstasy.
  4. Take naps.
  5. Stretch before rising.
  6. Run, romp, and play daily.
  7. Thrive on attention and let people touch you.
  8. Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.
  9. On warm days, stop to lie on your back on the grass.
  10. On hot days, drink lots of water and lie under a shady tree.
  11. When you're happy, dance around and wag your entire body.
  12. Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.
  13. Be loyal.
  14. Never pretend to be something you're not.
  15. If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it.
  16. When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by, and nuzzle them gently.
