“You've gotta dance like there's nobody watching,

Love like you'll never be hurt,

Sing like there's nobody listening,

And live like it's heaven on earth.”


William W. Purkey

Fun Fact

While Scotland proudly boasts the Loch Ness Monster, one of the world's most famous fabled creatures, the country opted to make another mythical beast its national animal: the unicorn. Although this might seem like an odd choice, Visit Scotland explains that unicorns played an integral role in the country's history. Back in the 12th century, William I used the "proud beast" in the Scottish royal coat of arms.


History Fact

Meeting in the Middle


In the year 6 BC, engineers in Greece dug a 1,000-meter-long aqueduct through a mountain by digging from both ends and meeting in the middle. Ingenious surveying and geometrical techniques were used to ensure the two tunnels didn’t miss each other. The Tunnel of Eupalinos is the second known tunnel in history to have been dug from both ends, and it’s still intact today.
