    Seven expectations for a successful student:  

    Prepare: Failure to prepare is preparing to fail.

    Participate: One of the penalty for refusing to participate in society is that you end up being governed by your inferiors.
    (Plato 427-327)

    Positive attitude: A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth your effort. (Herm Albright 1876-1944)

    Persevere: Few things are impossible to diligence and skill. Great works are not performed by strength, but perseverance.  (Samuel Johnson 1709-1784)

    Process: It is not that we do our best; sometime we have to do what's required. (Winston Churchill 1874-1965)

    Produce:  Acheivement is largely the product of raising one's level of aspiration and expectation.--Jack Nicklaus (1940-)

    Polite: No act of kindness and politeness: no matter how small, is wasted.  (Aesop 620-560 B.C.)
