I always liked Yoda's "Do, do not. There is no try." But then my 3 year-old said, "I disagree with Master Yoda," and pointed out that people should always try, because "sometimes trying's the most important thing." (By the way, he hasn't even seen the movie yet, but my husband and I - children from the 70s and 80s all the way - can't help but weave our own references into our conversations with him.) So now, I guess THAT's my favorite quote. :-) What's yours? -Heather WG

We used to have a shirt that we wore with a collection of stick figures. The caption read:

Teach them quick, before they think.

I never realized the complete truth of that shirt until I became a middle school teacher. :)

Among the many fantastic quotes about education made by Albert Einstein are these gems:

-Education is what remains after one has forgotten everything he learned in school.

-Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.

-The only thing that interferes with my learning is my education.

-The whole of science is nothing more than a refinement of everyday thinking.
