Mr. Sanford’s seniors dive into the year by learning about aphorisms. In the Modern Literary Perspectives class, students learned about small sayings meant to broaden one’s view or interpretation of life. Mark Twain explained aphorisms as “minimum words, maximum sense.” The opportunity to write these allowed them to learn about figurative language and find their own voice in writing.

Here are a few aphorisms written in Mr. Sanford’s classes:

“Yes, fire is destructive, but it’s necessary to create new life.” – Justin Little

“This world is acceptable until you make it exceptional.” – Kira Francom

“Sometimes the best advice is silent.” – Chloe Greer

“Let unspoken situations speak to you.” – Sam Allvord

“Everyone is a lesson or a blessing.” – Alex Lockwood

“Photography is meant to capture the moment, not replace it.” – Ashlyn Cook

“Even if you fall on your face, you’re still moving forward.” – Weston Metcalf

“Nobody shoots life with the same camera.” – Keaton Sysum

“Behind forgetting there’s always remembering.” – Avery Moran

“A good deed you do for someone else is a good deed you’ve done for yourself.” – Lauren Larsen
