I would ask my students to collect quotes and bring them in for a deep discussion on the first Friday of the month. The discussions were very powerful and students learned about writing and most importantly why we use quotes and why people feel they need to quote others. Anyway, these are my three of my favorite quotes:

“The antidote for fifty enemies is one friend.”

                                                                – Aristotle

“The one thing that doesn’t abide by majority rule is a person’s conscience.”

                                                                    – Harper Lee

               “A day is a miniature eternity.”

                 – Ralph Waldo Emerson
