William Shakespeare
“The fool doth think he is wise, but the wise man knows himself to be a fool.”
William Shakespeare, As You Like It

Donalyn Miller
“I believe that this corporate machinery of scripted programs, comprehension worksheets (reproducibles, handouts, printables, whatever you want to call them), computer-based incentive packages, and test practice curriculum facilitates a solid bottom-line for the companies that sell them, and give schools proof they can point to that they are using every available resource to teach reading, but these efforts are doomed to fail a large number of students because they leave out the most important factor. When you take a forklift and shovel off the programs, underneath it all is a child reading a book.”
Donalyn Miller

Richard    Thompson
“Did the tea-time of your soul
Make you long for wilder days
Did you never let Jack Kerouac
Wash over you in waves?”
Richard Thompson

W.B. Yeats
“The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper.”
W.B. Yeats

Girolamo Savonarola
“The gloom of the world is but a shadow; behind it, yet within our reach, is joy.
Take joy.”
Girolamo Savonarola
