Quotes

Mark Thackeray: What we saw yesterday is that to a considerable extent, we control how we are perceived. "Yo!" Gets you one response, "Excuse me, sir," another. When we address someone with respect, we are more often than likely to GET respect - not always, but more often than you think, and if you're smart, that ought to be enough. Common courtesy - "please", "thank you", "excuse me"... magical words, magical words.

I think the movie To Sir With Love II had a lot of meaning to it.
20 February 2000 | by love-25See all my reviews

I really liked the movie i think it had a lot of meaning to it the kids would get a lot out of it if they would only watch it. I watch it every chance i get along with the movie of the Temptations. they both were really good i cried in both of them.
