From Elizabeth Jaffe (who includes the following motivational comments on her assignments): 

  • There is a difference between not knowing and not knowing YET; I have not failed.  I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work
  •  It’s not that I’m so smart.  It’s just that I stayed with the problem longer.
  •  In this class, mistakes are expected, inspected & respected 
  • Challenges give you a chance to grow, and nothing starts out easy; Taking risks makes life interesting.
