  • I agree/disagree/feel/believe/see/don’t see/understand/don’t understand/…..
  • Support your statement above with three specific examples or reasons:
  • Add a final thought for your readers (something to think about, or perhaps a final question)
  • You should end up with a five sentence paragraph.

  1. “I believe that any man’s life will be filled with constant and unexpected encouragement, if he makes up his mind to do his level best each day, and as nearly as possible reaching the high water mark of pure and useful living.”
  2. “At the bottom of education, at the bottom of politics, even at the bottom of religion, there must be for our race economic independence.”
  3. “Success in life is founded upon attention to the small things rather than to the large things; to the every day things nearest to us rather than to the things that are remote and uncommon.”

  5. “No man, who continues to add something to the material, intellectual and moral well-being of the place in which he lives, is left long without proper reward.”
  6. “Few things can help an individual more than to place responsibility on him, and to let him know that you trust him.”

  8. “There is no power on earth that can neutralize the influence of a high, simple and useful life.”
  9. “No greater injury can be done to any youth than to let him feel that because he belongs to this or that race he will be advanced in life regardless of his own merits or efforts.”
