"It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it."
-Aristotle

“If a cluttered desk is the sign of a cluttered mind, what then is an empty desk the sign of?”
-Albert Einstein
This is butchered and I'm not sure who said it, but I sure like it:

"If you dislike change, you're going to like irrelvancy even less."
Lt. Gen. James Helmly said. “That always sounds good until we have to inactivate units.... Change is unsettling, it’s hard and it’s scary — but if you dislike change, you are going to dislike irrelevance even more.’’

Close, VERY close.
VERY nice! I just am beside myself with how AWESOME this network is. Just post a misquote and in less than 10 hours, someone's clarified AND posted a citing link!
Thanks George!
I saw a good one on a bloke's Tshirt the other day. I put it on my Skype display next to my name.
"Instant Human. Just add Coffee."
I saw you had that and was cracking up! I was trying to figure out how I needed to adjust if for myself, since I don't drink much coffee... still haven't figured it out. I drink mostly water and that's so not funny.
What about "70% water; 30% human"?

"In times of great change, the learners will inherit the earth while the learned will find themselves beautifully equipped to deal with a world that no longer exists."
--Eric Hoffer
oooh...another one I'm stealing from JohnPederson's Twits:

"Have we admired the problem long enough?"

I'm SO going to be using that in committee meetings and in SO many other areas. Let's MOVE FORWARD people!
We are all learners...
What have you learned today?
We are all teachers...
How have you helped someone learn today?
We are a community...
What have you shared today?

The first two are on a sign in my classroom. I first heard the " We are all learners, we are all teachers" quote at a presentation by Marc Prensky (I think). I added the questions to focus the thinking of myself, my students and those who enter my classroom. The third part dawned on me as I was writing this quote and will be added to my sign soon. What do you think?
I'm stealing this. The quote, the questions, the poster, all of it.
See my "If" questions for some good ones..
