QUOTES FOR ENGLISH TEACHERS AND STUDENTS
In this Best Quotes for English Teachers and Students section I offer a comprehensive collection of quotations covering topics of greatest use to English teachers, professors, and their students. On this page I provide PDFs of the most interesting, thought-provoking, and useful quotations on the topics of Books, Censorship, Communication and Conversation, Film, Journalism, Language, Literature, Libraries, Listening, Literary/Arts Criticism, Media, Oratory, Poetry, Quotations, Reading, Theater, Writing, The Habits and Routines of Famous Authors, and Best Writing Advice. I start this page with information on and links to my recent books. I also start this page with links to articles that provide ideas on how best to use quotations in schoolwork and in school and higher education classrooms. (Teachers take note.) I have collected quotations most of my life from many sources. This collection of quotations is unique in that I’ve chosen only quotes that are pertinent and straightforward. I’ve included classic quotations, but I’ve also used many quotations taken directly from primary sources, and I’ve purposely integrated numerous quotes from women and minorities. This is a unique collection in that many of the quotations will be found in no other compilation. Also, the collection is comprehensive. This educational website is one of the largest presentations of quotations in existence intended specifically for use by students, educators, writers and English teachers at all educational levels.
In addition to the wisdom and guidance quotes provide, the Quotes for English Teachers and Students are perfectly suited for use in displays, presentations, speeches, research, students’ papers, and classroom lessons and discussions.

Centuries ago Voltaire stated that “the multiplicity of facts and writings is becoming so great that everything must soon be reduced to extracts.” Considering that we are now in an age of information glut, we have apparently arrived. Regardless of whether Voltaire was prophetic, there are a number of advantages to using quotations as a staple in the English classroom. In this article I summarize the many ways teachers can make effective use of quotations in the English classroom.
The Literary Form of the 80s: Using Quotations to Teach English

Quotations are short. Considering the fast-paced, electronic culture in which students are immersed, a quotation ranging from five to six words to three or four sentences is readily acceptable to the adolescent in a hurry. As a change of pace from short stories, poems, and novels, it’s refreshing to delve into quotations to stimulate thought and focus on the development of communication skills. Classroom teachers can utilize quotations in many ways to teach skills and concepts in the English classroom.
