"Stories" from the Collective (YOU)


A quote from Nanook of the North

by 'Nanook of the North'

"The measure (worth) of a man is what he does with what he has." -- Taken from Nanook of the North

This inspirational quote is taken from from the early black and white documentary (1922) called Nanook of the North

I taught in an inner-city high school. Kept a poster with this quote on my classroom wall. (It was pre- concern for sexist language!)

STEVE COMMENT: Nanook of the North? Hmm, a quick look on YouTube and you find these beautiful black and white gems...
