What is Being a Southminster School Mariner All About?

Mariners have manners because saying “please” and “thank you” matter.  “A man’s manners are a mirror in which he shows his portrait.” – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Mariners are accountable for their thoughts, words and actions. “Your beliefs become your thoughts, your thoughts become your words, your words become your actions, your actions become your habits, your habits become your values, your values become your destiny.” – Mahatma Gandhi

Mariners have respect for the Lord, their school, friends, teachers, and themselves. “Tolerance implies a respect for another person, not because he is wrong or even because he is right, but because he is human.” – John Cogley Commonweal

Mariners aren’t afraid to use their imaginations and think “outside the box.” “The man who has no imagination has no wings.” – Muhammad Ali

Mariners are noble, socially aware, and committed to serving others. “In the end you should always do the right thing even if it’s hard.” – Nicholas Sparks

Mariners are enthusiastic. Anything worth doing is worth doing well. “It’s faith in something and enthusiasm in something that makes life worth living.” – Oliver Wendell Holmes Sr.

Mariners have a responsibility to do their best, live their best and be their best. “The price of greatness is responsibility.” – Winston Churchill
