1. In politics we sometimes forget what’s important. Peace on earth, goodwill towards men. (By @RatliffT)

2. The weight room isn’t for everyone. Then again, neither is playing time… and neither is winning. (By @CoachKavanaugh)

3. Heroes are made, not born. When asked about being a hero, JFK said, “It was involuntary. They sank my boat.” (By @TinneyTroy)

4. Athletes I cant stress this enough…clean up your social media accounts. You are what you post, retweet, favorite. Colleges watch you! (By @coreyalexander)

5. Love the new technology gadget I received for Christmas and can’t wait to get back to school so students can show me how to use it. (By @BluntEducator)

6. Today’s Quote: “Learning requires mistakes.  Therefore, well made mistakes are actually pretty darn awesome.” (By @DrRichAllen)

7. If you check your phone for text messages or emails during business meetings, you are probably annoying your boss and colleagues. (By @tgrierhisd)

8. I love sports as much as the next person, but really wish more parents worried more about writing skills than dribbling skills. (By @BluntEducator)

9. To get promoted: 1 – volunteer more; 2 – forget job description; 3 – beat deadlines; 4 – be positive; 5 – be adaptable; 6 – don’t pretend; 7 – work harder. (By @ValaAfshar)

10. “There are only two options regarding commitment: You’re either in or you’re out. There’s no such thing as life in-between.” – Pat Riley (By @ESPN)
