It’s interesting that Mitchell refers to life as if it is a person. But, often, we treat life as just that-- a person who is obligated to give us things, rewards, good luck, whatever. Nonsense, she says. Life cares little about who we are and what we do, and certainly we shouldn’t be spending time expecting things from it.
Yet when we put so much work into life, maybe we should expect certain things back from it. It is not unreasonable to think, for example, that if we put effort into our job that our job will reward us with a promotion and higher pay. In this way, life is sort of like a transaction partner. You put energy into it and you get rewards.
It would be interesting to ask students, “Do you think life owes you anything?”. #educators #education #teachdifferent #quoteoftheday #quotes #historicquotes #margaretmitchell #teachers #teach #learn
