No current Talk conversations about this book.

Famous, pithy, and interesting quotes from the famous and not so famous have been collected here and arranged by topic. These topics include: the teacher, the philosophy behind good teaching, words from the wise, those we teacher and those who raise them, the philosophy of learning, classroom perspective, life lessons, civilized thoughts, between the lines, nut and bolts, fundamental elements, extremes of intelligence, the funny side of teaching, and finding inspiration. So, when looking for an inspirational or provocative quote for a website, newsletter, or speech, this is a good collection. Our only quarrel is that there are only about four quotes per page. Thus, the heftiness of the book. However, it is one book you can easily spot on the shelf and one could use it instead of a barbell. You need several good quote books available at your fingertips. This one is a good choice.
