If we are fair, we try and get good, if we are good, we try to get better. Then hopefully, we can be the best that we can be. None of the other ladies in the class had ever heard this either. Thought it was good food for thought.
I went online to find the quotation. Maybe I do not know how to search, but a guy named Tim Duncan claims it! He is not as old as I am and I remember that from my early childhood. Why do people plagiarize?

Anyway, here is a really cut little "print it yourself" version of it for your kids and grandchildren's school teachers.
