As I mentioned in the previous post, I’m working on a little project and I’d love to include YOU in it.
Now, I know what you’re probably thinking, Teachinfourth, you’ve been so hush-hush with this whole thing anyway…just what the heck is it? Well, I’m not going to tell you just now—that’s just how it goes with the things you want to make sure are awesome before you tell the whole world about them.
So, what did I need from you?
What I’m looking for are your original quotes to sprinkle throughout my little endeavor.
It was this morning that I realized that some of you might not be comfortable sharing your personal made-up quotes on a Facebook page, or might not even have joined the social medium as of yet (oh, I think your pager just went off).
To remedy this, I would like to invite you to submit your original quotes to this project that will allow you to be a part of something bigger than any of us are alone. You are more than welcome to submit them in the comments section here or—if you’re feeling a little bit better about it this way—drop me an email with them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I would love for them to be thoughtful, funny, or just plain, ‘you.’
Since I hope to get far more quotes that I could use (because you’re going to step it up, right?) For those quotes that are a little bit too difficult for me to decide between, I will have an impartial party do the dirty work.
So, now…are you ready?
Here are just a few of the categories that I’m still looking for quotes in:
genes or brains
being a new student
defense mechanisms of creatures
being cold, snow, or winter
being mistaken for another person
homework in school
making a confession
real men and pink
I'd like quotes perhaps something like these:
I go to school, but I never learn what I want to know.”
― Bill Watterson
It kills you to see them grow up. But I guess it would kill you quicker if they didn’t.
— Barbara Kingsolver
As far as I’m concerned, if something is so complicated that you can’t explain it in 10 seconds, then it’s probably not worth knowing anyway.
― Bill Watterson
My report card always said, ‘Jim finishes first and then disrupts the other students’.
— Jim Carrey
After a fellow gets famous it doesn’t take long for someone to bob up that used to sit by him in school.
— Kin Hubbard
Remember, these can even be quotes made up by your children, grandparents, or that eccentric aunt that is closeted up in your attic.
