10 Mr. Feeny Quotes To Inspire You This Semester (And Forever)

"Believe in yourselves. Dream, try, do good."

Mr. Feeny from boy meets world

Boy Meets World was one of my favorite shows in high school. I remember setting the DVR to record the reruns I would miss because of band practice or other after school plans. Of course, one of my favorite parts of the show was Mr. Feeny's unfailing wisdom. Whenever something went amiss in Cory's life, Mr. Feeny was there to provide some insight. That didn't always make the problem disappear, but it did often put things in perspective and encourage Cory, and us, to view life a little differently.

As everyone is settling into another school routine, there is no shortage of negative feelings. So to put a little pep into your step, I've compiled 10 Mr. Feeny quotes to encourage you to do your best on this road that we call life.

1. "If you let people's perception of you dictate your behavior, you will never grow as a person."

2. "If you search your heart and listen to its instruction, you won't go wrong."

3. "There is no greater aspiration than to have love in our lives."

4. "Friendship, for example, is a real gift. It's given with no expectations and no gratitude is needed-- not between real friends."

5. "To me, a real hero is someone who does the right thing when the right thing isn't the easy thing to do."

6. "It's not enough to leave school and just desire to succeed in this cold, cruel world because then you've simply become a part of it. You must also have the desire to change it."

7. "In the course of your education, you have always been taught to look for the right answer; but you must also understand that in life, sometimes the right answer is that there isn't one."

8. "Regardless of hurt feelings, it's always advisable to keep the lines of communication open."

9. "Sometimes a sure thing is not the best thing."

10. "Believe in yourselves. Dream, try, do good."

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

Like I said, it's a big hassle.
