School slogan captures the heart of a Nation
"I love those who can smile in trouble, who can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection. ‘Tis the business of little minds to shrink, but they whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves their conduct, will pursue their principles unto death." – Thomas Paine
It has always been said that during times of great stress, as with the COVID-19 pandemic, we will find ourselves faced head on with opportunity to refine, better put as Duke Ellington had said, “A problem is a chance for you to do your best.”
To further understand this quote look to the actions of one of our locals from Hartwell, GA. Hartwell is known in part for its school's slogan 'One Hart Beat' and as evidenced from the actions of its community they do believe “What lies behind you and what lies in front of you, pales in comparison to what lies inside of you." - Ralph Waldo Emerson.
