The Project

Pin It
Updated 6/23/2021

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

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:

being attractive
being hilarious
daylight savings
deeply thinking
something annoying
milk cartons
getting stung
being bored
genes or brains
board games
something ghetto
being a new student
book reports
something creepy
hot dogs
defense mechanisms of creatures
locked doors
Christmas gifts
being cold, snow, or winter
being mistaken for another person
homework in school
making a confession
embarrassing songs
cell phones
real men and pink
diminishing return

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.

In advance,

Thank you.

This may not fit in any of the categories above, but my Grandma always told me: " The love goes down" meaning that the love from parent to child is strongest... She said this in reference to when a parent loses a child, that the feeling is strongest..when one suffers that loss. Some may disagree but I think its true.. When my brother was killed, as well as my husband, both sets of parents were devastated.. As my Dad use to say: Kids should out live their parents, its un natural if they don't.

I love quotes : )
I will try to think of something brilliant I have said. Lately I have just been screaming "STOP FIGHTING" to the boys over and over.... : )

Upon closer inspection, greener pastures have manure in them too. That's what makes them so green!

You don't have to lie in the gutter to appreciate the sidewalk.

When my mom tells me, "This too shall pass....." I tell her, "So does gas! Doesn't mean it isn't painful and doesn't stink"!

(This is from The Native's) That's why they're called board games mom! They're boring!!

It took me all night to get my hair to look like Rod Stewart's.

(Male Native) I do not have mom's genes! They're way too big for me!

(Male Native) Drinking out of the milk carton is so cool! If you don't take a breath the sides cave in and eventually the carton sticks to your face.

(Native's) Hot dogs are just bologna before someone ran them over.

(Native's) Hot dogs and bologna are processed road kill packaged up and sold to little kids who don't know any better.

:D I'm sure I said, "lie" in my gutter/sidewalk statement wrong. Is it lie/lay..... you and Gerb can cringe over my bad grammar/spelling/punctuation/ineptness/etc./etc./etc. :D

Now this is from my high school days.. growing up in an integrated neighborhood, it was a known fact especially around my female black friends, they were always reminding me that : "black don't crack"... and its definitely true...and its due to the melanin that's in dark skinned folk and that includes olive skin folks as well....
