I Told You I Like "Quotes"

I found the following quote on someone's Facebook page and decided I had to share it with you, along with some others. I thought it went along nicely with my previous post. 

"You Might be a Teacher If...
You have no time for a life from August to June, you want to slap the next person who says "Must be nice to work from 8-3 and have summers off" , you refer to adults as boys and girls, meeting a child's parents instantly answers the questions "Why is this kid like this?" , you believe extremely annoying should have its own box on report cards, when in public you feel the urge to correct a strange childrens' behavior, you encourage your friends by telling them they are a "good helper", and you never want kids of your own because there isn't a name you can hear that wouldn't elevate your blood pressure." 

"Children are made readers on the laps of their parents" - Emilie Buchwald

"If a doctor, lawyer, or dentist had 40 people in his office at one time, all of whom had different needs, and some of whom didn't want to be there and were causing trouble, and the doctor, lawyer, or dentist, without assistance, had to treat them all with professional excellence for nine months, then he might have some conception of the classroom teacher's job."  ~Donald D. Quinn

"We expect teachers to handle teenage pregnancy, substance abuse, and the failings of the family.  Then we expect them to educate our children."  ~John Sculley

"The best teachers teach from the heart, not from the book."

"The object of teaching a child is to enable him to get along without his teacher."  ~Elbert Hubbard

"The greatest sign of success for a teacher is to be able to say, "The children are now working as if I did not exist."

"Tell me and I'll forget; show me and I may remember; involve me and I'll understand."

And some other quotes that aren't necessarily about teaching, but some of my favorites.
"You were given this life because you are strong enough to live it."

"Treasure the love you receive above all. It will survive long after your good health has vanished." - Og Mandino

"Love is the only way to grasp another human being in the innermost core of his personality." -Viktor Frankl (author of Mans Search for Meaning)

"Those who have a reason 'why' to live, can bear with almost any 'how'." -Viktor Frankl

“True friendship is like sound health; the value of it is seldom known until it be lost.” -Charles Caleb Colton

"...I think it happens to everyone as they grow up. You find out who you are and what you want, and then you realize that people you've known forever don't see things the way you do. And so you keep the wonderful memories, but find yourself moving on. It's perfectly normal." ~True Believer~ Nicholas Sparks

"May you never steal, lie, or cheat, but if you must steal, then steal away my sorrows, and if you must lie, lie with me all the nights of my life, and if you must cheat, then please cheat death because I couldn't live a day without you." -Leap Year
