Date posted: 2010-11-30

I am aware that quotations found on the Internet are more than likely wrong, or wrongly attributed, or both. That said, last night I found a few that I really like here: http://www.literacyla.org/quotes.htm N.B.: TODO - 2024-02-05: the attributions have not been verified.

"Books are the quietest and most constant of friends, they are the most accessible and wisest of councilors, and the most patient of teachers."

"We shouldn't teach great books; we should teach a love of reading."

  • B. F. Skinner

"Research is the process of going up alleys to see if they are blind."
