I have devoted this website to Education, Writing, and Movies. Education is my profession; writing is my avocation; and collecting, viewing, and blogging about movies is my hobby. I created this website to showcase my writing; to provide useful content for students, educators, and other writers; and to provide recommendations for film fans. The preponderance of content on this site consists of the best teacher and education quotes. I value quotations because they yield the greatest insight from the fewest words. On this website I present quotation collections for 112 education-related and general interest topics comprising more than 10,000 pages of quotations consisting only of the most interesting, thought-provoking, and useful quotes. I have placed a priority on the inclusion of contemporary quotes, unique quotes, and quotes by women and minorities. I also have created special quotation collections for writers, English teachers, subject area teachers, school principals, deans and counselors as well as general interest readers. There is truly useful and interesting content for everyone.
In addition to the wisdom and guidance quotes provide, the quotes in this website’s collections are perfectly suited for use in displays, presentations, speeches, research, students’ papers, and classroom lessons and discussions.
In the Daily Education Quotes & Quotes Quizzes section I give users the opportunity to sign up to get free Daily Education Quotes delivered to their email inbox. (Visitors can also simply select this link and complete the short form: GET DAILY EDUCATION QUOTES) The quotes are only those I consider interesting, thought-provoking, useful, or motivational. Also in this section I present Quotation Quizzes on 15 Education-Related topics. Challenge yourself in your area of interest: Art, Books, Children, Dating, Education, Literature, Marriage, Mothers, Movies, Music, Parenting, Reading, Teaching, Women’s Studies, and Writing. For participating in a quiz, users receive a ‘giveaway.’ Users earn a different prize with the completion of each quiz.
I value quotations because they yield the greatest insight from the fewest words.
