Wednesdays with Words: Ocean of Truth
As you are all certainly aware, I was at the Cincinnati Great Homeschool Convention over the weekend. It was so good and my mind is still a bit full from the words I heard.
I could certainly fill up this post with al kinds of words and quotes, but one of my favorites was a quote referenced by Andrew Kern from Isaac Newton:
I love this picture that Newton (of all genius!) gives of himself. He who discovered motion, gravity, calculus ... considers them to be a shell or pebble and himself blind to the ocean of truth.
Kern was using this as an illustration to remind us as homeschoolers to simplify. We can't do everything, so we must do what can be done and not be fearful of what cannot.
