After crossing the Rubicon, Caesar “gave his soldiers the strictest injunctions to do no injury to any property, public or private, as they advanced, and not to assume, in any respect, a hostile attitude toward the people of the country. The inhabitants, therefore, welcomed him wherever he came, and all the cities and towns followed the example of Ariminum, surrendering, in fact, faster than he could take possession of them.”

SURRENDERING FASTER THAN HE COULD TAKE POSSESSION OF THEM.

Casey: “I want to be a teacher.”

"Really? You?"

"I know. I’m such an introvert. And I hate nothing more than speaking in front of people."


"So why do you want to put yourself through that?"

Open your ears to listen to me.’ For once, I want students to close their ears. Open your eyes to what’s around you. Open your mind to different thinking and open your mind to your own thoughts!”

"Wait. Did you say 80%? Like, ‘8’ ‘0’?"

"Yeah. I was so ashamed, and my teacher was so disappointed with me. Everyone else had at 90%. I was pretty proud of how accurate the signature was though. I would have gotten away with it, had she not found the paper later."
