"A fine quotation is a diamond in the hand of a man of wit and a pebble in the hand of a fool." - Joseph Roux
I am a lover of quotes. As a classroom teacher in the early 1990s, I wrote a quote on the board each morning and would reference it during our morning meeting to start our day. Later as a Principal, I shared a quote in my weekly email to the staff. The quote was always selected to emphasize a particular point or priority. In February 2009, I joined the world of Twitter and began to share a daily quote that I would later begin to tag with the hashtag #DayStarter. Most recently, I have begun to curate quotes around important topics. These quotes have been foraged for across the internet and a lifetime of reading, listening, and learning. I make no claim to the authenticity of any of the quotes. I simply know that these quotes spoke to me when I discovered them. I share them with you to pass along the moments of reflection and resonation I felt and found.
