Quotes to Remember

It seems to me that I am always collecting quotes from books that I am reading, Social Media and often, my daughters and my students.  I like to use the quotes in teaching to talk about contexts and how the quote changes based on who has said it. Sometimes they are just profound no matter who said them. I will include some of my favourites here but have a look at my Pinterest “Quotations” Board.


” I keep my ideals, because in spite of everything I still believe that people are really good at heart.”

“How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before stating to improve the world.”

“Whoever is happy will make others happy too.”

Anne Frank(1929 – 1945)
