EDUCATION-RELATED QUOTES BY DAN L. MILLER
[Best Quotes on Writing]
Best Quotes on Writing—On this page I present a voluminous collection of interesting, thought-provoking, and useful quotations related to writing topics. I provide links to PDF collections of quotations in the categories of Journalism, Language, Literary/Arts Criticism, Quotations, Research, The Habits and Routines of Famous Authors, Thinking/Mind/Ideas, Best Writing Advice Quotes, and Best Quotes on Writing–Collections 1-3. I start this page with links to articles that provide ideas on how best to use quotations, particularly in school and college classrooms.
This collection of quotations is unique in that I’ve chosen for inclusion only quotes that are pertinent and straightforward. I’ve added 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.
In addition to the wisdom and guidance quotes provide, quotes are perfectly suited for use in displays, presentations, speeches, research, students’ papers, and classroom lessons and discussions.

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.

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.
