Striving for balance

This is beautiful, Dr. Curwin. Real love communicates. It's the only thing that does. I have a saying, "Love without principle is wishy washy; principle without love is cold and inanimate." We need a balance of both--as teachers and parents and administrators. But if given a choice, err on the side of love. There is also a quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson I discovered on a street sign in Northhamton, MA. It reads, "Who you are speaks so loudly, I can't hear what you are saying."
