The Development of Self-Regulation and it's Impact on Academic Success

"A man who is master of himself can end a sorrow as easily as he can invent a pleasure.  I don't want to be at the mercy of my emtoins.  I want to use them, to enjoy them, and to dominate them." - Oscar Wilde

"Courage consists in the power of self-recovery."  - Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Rember not only to say the right thing in the right place, but far more diffictul still, to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment."  - Benjamin Franklin

"I know quite certainly that I myself have no special talent; curiosity, obsession and dogged endurance, combined with self-criticism, have brought me to my ideas." - Albert Einstein

Introduction to Jack Marine

I was born on December 2, 1955 at Albert Einstein Medical Center in North Philadelphia. At that time my parents' house was at 1307 Paper Mill Road in Erdenheim, PA - in Eastern Montgomery County. My sister, my parents and I lived in that house until I was eight years old. I was a child who was very curious about the world around me and even at the young age of seven, I was exploring nature by witnessing giant fish swimming through a small creek behind my house, catching tomato hornworm catipillars in my father's garden and pulling around a dead rat (in a toy wagon) that my cat had brought home. I was also fascinated by the ticks that my dog brought into the house, which when full of her blood would literally crawl up the wall of our den!
