Work in Progress

Expect to see disclaimers of work in progress and pages that look like they should have more on them for the forseeable future. This project is just getting started, and as I add to it, I'm finding that I have a tremendous amount left to do before this site is where I want it. First for the school year, but also as a project in general.

That said, if you find something that is broken, please do let me know.

Be of value.

Try not to become a man of success but rather try to become a man of value. - Albert Einstein

This applies to everyone, man or not.

The universe is change.

The universe is change; our life is what our thoughts make it. - Marcus Aurelius

These are fun to make and very quick. I may start making these from time to time from the quotes that I put into the quote database for the website.
