Welcome to another edition of Quotable Sunday! In light of the fact that it is back to school time, and for the first time I had a child join the ranks of school agers, I have put together a few quotes on Education and Learning.
My favorite quote of the week came from my daughter after I asked her late last week if she was liking Kindergarten. She said “they just make you do work all the time!”
This picture pretty much sums up her hesitancy about going to school on the first day. It did get easier for her later in the week. I am hoping this week she may even find something she enjoys!

Education is not the filling of a pail but the lighting of a fire. ~ William Butler Yeats
Once children learn how to learn, nothing is going to narrow their mind. The essence of teaching to make learning contagious, to have one idea spark another. ~ Marva Collins
