My view is that at your age you shouldn't worry too much about losing love. If it is right, it happens, its meant to be. The main thing is not to hurry, especially when your young and new to love. Love must come to both. Know for sure that nothing good, true and real gets away when it comes to love. And if it doesn't work out (for whatever reason) also know that God is closest to those of us with broken hearts.
Since I've been in the education business often the only way to relate to teachers, parents & children are with words of wisdom. If I could know all the wise books by heart I would stand a chance at being a better Headmaster. Also for when it comes to my family & friends that knowledge would always be there to give inspiration & encouragement & tell me who can't use that with their relatives!
I've always believed in education and in good teaching that is guided by truth. But after a lifetime of educational pursuit, I now ask, what is true education and who decides on what is good teaching? This search has taken me through the spiritual, the delusional, social, physical, the psychological, the philosophical and back again. And I have made the most important educational discovery of my career, the most important discovery of my whole life: It is only through kindness that any true lesson can be taught and that I'm only here to help my students find that kindness. They are all my education, they are all my good teaching, they are my truth, they are my kindness.
A school cannot exist as a permanent form of education. It can only exist until the student discovers that they can learn more themselves from the real world. From that moment on the majority always look for the most promising place the highest wisdom outside of school, with the result of schooling always collapsing over lifes education.
All the perplexities, confusion and distress in education these days arises, not from defects in the students,teachers or schools, not from want of equipment or technology, but from the downright ignorance of the nature of honor, virtue and kindness. Sound education... thrives on honesty, on honor, on the sacredness of obligations, on faithful protection of childhood, on unselfish performance of teachers and on accountability and reliability.
Tests and exams do not determine who is in the right standing. Tests and exams only determine who is left standing. However even if you are knocked down you can still rise again. How far you go in life does not depend on tests and exams but on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the old, sympathetic and tolerant with others who are not as strong as yourself.
