“Don’t worry about failures, worry about the chance you miss when you don’t even try.”

This quote by noted author Jack Canfield was posted on the wall of Dr. Landron’s Room 303 by Rose Buteau, a sophomore in the Medical Academy, as part of a class assignment.

Dr. Landron asked his students to research inspirational quotes to put on the wall, so other people who come to his class can see them.

“The first day of class I asked my students for ideas,” Dr. Landron said, “because I want them to understand that this is not only my class, it’s also theirs.” The result was quotes from people ranging from Eminem to Muhammad Ali.

The idea was brought to Dr. Landron by Medical Academy senior Kefnie Massillon, whose mom inspired it.

“Every year on special events my mom comes to me to talk,” she said, “or give me words of encouragement to pursue life and never give up. I feel like that really helps me in school to never be discouraged.” Kefnie wanted other students and staff to benefit from the inspirational words, advice or quotes.

Even students in the class had a lot to say about the assignment. “It will push me on days that I am feeling down and bring me up,” Rose Buteau said. “I wrote the quote on my own and to be honest it really inspires me every time I look at it. It reminds me why I’m in medical.”

Rickella Rose, a freshman in the medical program, said:  “I wrote the quote because Dr. Landron made me realize that people don’t define you, you do, and no matter what, always believe in yourself.”

The main purpose of quote wall is to help people the best way possible. “I think the quotes will help the kids,” Dr. Landron said, “because every time they come into class they’ll see it’s their work up on the wall.”

    These are very inspirational words.

    The quotes are self motivating and makes me want to become a better person who cares more for others. I hope others will feel encouraged and motivated by these quotes also.

  7. Cynthia Frage on August 29th, 2017 11:19 am

    I really like the way Dr. Landron chose to put those quotes in his classroom because many students are going through things or feeling down and they need some words of encouragement to make them feel a lot better about themselves.

  8. Karla Salvador on August 29th, 2017 11:20 am

    This article is really inspiring with so many quotes that the students made. It shows that some students are not afraid to show others the real them and I like the way they express themselves when the walk to class knowing their quote will be on the wall.

  9. Chanique Coleman on August 29th, 2017 11:26 am

    These are some really great quotes, I’m actually inspired by them. The quote that I loved the most stated ” Sometimes when things are falling apart, they may actually be falling into place.” I admired this quote because I can actually relate to this by thinking that at a point of my life everything was going downhill, God was able to turn things around and let me see good from what I thought was bad.

  10. Seth Mars on August 29th, 2017 11:28 am

    It’s nice to see projects that are meant to directly and immediately benefit students.

  11. Halmise Romeus on August 29th, 2017 12:03 pm

    I love the quote, and how it can interact in someones life, to push harder and to reach their goals.

  12. Michael Alford on August 29th, 2017 12:09 pm

    These are very inspirational sayings to most definitely anyone can relate to to help them in their own life

  13. Aijaniya Mclaughlin on August 29th, 2017 12:40 pm

    Those words will help someone go through life and make it more easier.

  14. DeJean Knowles on August 29th, 2017 12:44 pm

    All of the quotes are well written and are well thought.

  15. Angel Joshua Cappello on August 29th, 2017 12:44 pm

    Inspiring words to live by.

    I really like the quote that is used in this picture and how they blurred out the front of the picture.

  17. Hayle Brown on August 29th, 2017 12:48 pm

    I really loved these little papers the students wrote on. Kefine Massillon really did come up with a good idea for this, the girl has a bright mind.

  18. Fidel Perez on August 29th, 2017 12:49 pm

    I like the pictures a lot because it makes me want to keep going forward and not give up.

  19. Daniel jones on August 29th, 2017 12:49 pm

    Awesome quotes keep it up.

  20. Marc Guillaume on August 29th, 2017 12:50 pm

    you should add this quote by Jim Rohn, “discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment.”

  21. myke mendez on August 29th, 2017 12:50 pm

    These quotes are very inspirational and I can one day use them to help someone that needs a motivational talk.

  22. Brianna Dwyer on August 29th, 2017 12:51 pm

    I really really love this article. These quotes just made my day and I hope that the person who wrote this article will continue to do inspiring work.

  23. Hawonce Luberisse on August 30th, 2017 9:36 am

    These are all inspirational words everyone should keep in mind on their good and bad days.

  24. Diego on August 30th, 2017 9:42 am

    That’s pretty good, here’s a quote I like to use for myself, “The universe is too big to care about something so small.” This quote may not pertain to what was in this article but it just reminds me to not care too much about my problems.

  25. Kaila Hall on August 30th, 2017 11:13 am

    Knowing that these quotes are from Inlet”s Medical students really inspired me. The quote I liked the most was “Change your thoughts and you change the world.” I like this quote the most because you can really relate to it. Good job medical students, these quotes are very helpful.
