Quote challenge--back to school
Sat, 08-12-2006 - 12:56pm

Well, my girls will be back in school this week, Harrison and Caroline and Theresa's kids have already started, and the rest will be back in school soon. So I thought a school-related quote challenge was in order! Use one of the following quotes on a page:

Learning is a treasure that will follow its owner everywhere. ~ Chinese Proverb

Education is growth. Education is not a preparation for life; education is life itself. ~ John Dewey

Learning is not attained by chance. It must be sought for with ardor and attended to with diligence. ~ Abigail Adams

Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire. ~ William Butler Yeats

What we want is to see the child in pursuit of knowledge, and not knowledge in pursuit of the child. ~ George Bernard Shaw

Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the bod. ~ Joseph Addison

When you're done, post it in Show Us your work and also link it here.

I just wanted to add my .02$ to this....

I'm a teacher (went back last Monday) and kids return on Monday (14th).

Hugs Wendy. I know its hard to leave your son, but you'll get back into a routine quickly. Good luck with your new class.
