Everybody has something to say about education, well here's a quote I can't seem to get out of my mind:
"Education is the one thing people are willing to pay for and not get"
I'm not sure who first said it - can't find the origin of the quote. Anyone know?

I can see a whole conversation in class around this quote. I'm going to add this to my list of items to start a class. There are days when I just have random short TED talks running when students come into class. We talk about it once class starts. This brings them to class and sometimes a little early. Here is one of my favorite cartoons I share as well.
I also have a list of quotes I use when I send emails. I try to send an inspirational quote with each email. At the beginning of the semester I send a Welcome email with the following quote:
“The difference between school and life? In school, you're taught a lesson and then given a test. In life, you're given a test that teaches you a lesson.”
― Tom Bodett
At the end of each semester I send a final "We Survived" email with the following quote:
It always seems impossible until it is done. ~ Nelson Mandela
