There must be another life, she thought, sinking back into her chair, exasperated. Not in dreams; but here and now, in this room, with living people. She felt as if she were standing on the edge of a precipice with her hair blown back; she was about to grasp something that just evaded her. There must be another life, here and now, she repeated.

A Student is the most important person ever in this school...in person, on the telephone, or by mail.A Student is not dependent on us...we are dependent on the Student.A Student is not an interruption of our work..the Studenti s the purpose of it. We are not doing a favor by serving the Student...the Student is doing us a favor by giving us the opportunity to do so.A Student is a person who brings us his or her desire to learn. It is our job to handle each Student in a manner which is beneficial to the Student and ourselves.Adapted from an L.L. Bean Co. poster: What is a customer? by J. M. Eaten

But who knows? The first argument might shatter all these good resolutions!)
