Kick start Monday - Quotes to write by

How was your 1st weekend of autumn?
We were busy, as usual! Early Homecoming weekend around here. I may have to do a whole post on the current HS fashion trends - scary!

In sports we had two more football wins so both teams have made the playoffs, yay! This is wonderful! and so opposite from the past 4 years of losing all but 1 or 2 games.

And for baseball I had to cheer for both teams! My middle guy played on the other team because they didnt have enough players. It was rough since he hasn't played baseball in two years and he's younger but he did well enough. Never expected to see that! It was exciting!

Finally, Cinderella made it to the ball, but was definitely pooped! It was nice just to get out =) Tho I was busy, I was able to tackle more editing and read a bunch of campaign flashes, so it was a productive weekend!

And now for your reading enjoyment...
I had to cover a class on one of my planning periods last week - went from Math to English =) On the wall I found these:

Quotes from an English classroom

“We read to know we are not alone.” C.S. Lewis

“You don’t have to burn books to destroy a culture. Just get people to stop reading them.” Ray Bradbury

“Reading makes immigrants of us all. It takes us away from home but more important, it finds homes for us everywhere.” Jean Rhys

“He who destroys a good book, kills reason itself.” John Milton

“To read without reflecting is like eating without digesting.” Edmund Burke

“…I never loved to read. One does not love breathing.”  Scout (Harper Lee)

“I love writing. I love the swirl and swing of words as they tangle with human emotions.” James Michener

Homecoming! Jeez, that seems so long ago, do they still wear crazy party dresses to the dance and elect a king and queen? I love the quotes--wish more people understood how important it is to read.

Yay for all the boys doing well in all the sports adn the playoffs. Excellent.

Great group of quotes. I cringe whenever I hear a book villified. What's wrong with a perspective outside your own head now and then?

Alana said...

I really like the Jean Rhys quote. Never heard it before. It's quite nice.

Busy, busy weekend! I very much look forward to a post on the current HS fashion trends - should be eye-opening material. :)
