Quotable Quotes

A friend of mine recently asked me what prompted me to start this site. I told her that I’ve always been a sap for anything inspirational or motivational. There have been many occasions when a well-timed quote has saved me from a “dark night of the soul” or prompted me to just get up and get going.

A quote on it’s own is enough. A book of quotes to me is sometimes too much to absorb. It would be like looking at 20 beautiful sunrises at once. Each amazing but too much for one sitting. I used to make books of quotes when I was a geeky teenager. But I know better now, I think. Quotes are not be devoured but savored.

After a while, a quote may not ring true for you any more. What’s most powerful about wit and wisdom also has to do with its timing. Five years or even five months from now, a quote that motivated you to change your life may not be what you need to see taped to your bathroom mirror. Or maybe you cease to see it at all. And then it’s time for a new saying to take it’s place.

So, I wondered if people might like inspirational or witty quotes that were combined with simple designs that could be printed for free at home on 8.5 x 11 sheets of paper. Because I would and I hadn’t been able to find any online.

And that’s why I started this site.

I’m so excited to announce this feature I can hardly contain myself! :)

On Friday, I received an email from Nelba from Argentina, asking if it would be possible to create a way to embed our free posters in blogs or websites (just like you embed YouTube videos). We thought this was a great idea and our very talented programmer got to work right away. I’m thrilled to report that early this morning, this new feature was rolled out for everyone to enjoy.

how to embed images

How it works:

1. Find the poster you’d like to embed.

2. Copy the little piece of code to the right of the image (see image above) by right clicking and selecting copy or using a keyboard short cut (CTRL + C). We’ll add a copy button soon.

3. Paste the code into your blog post. In Blogger click on the EDIT HTML tab, in WordPress just click on the HTML tab.

Let us know what you think and once again, thank you, Nelba for this great idea!

Teachers everywhere go to work every day and literally shape our future. Here are five quotes to remind teachers how important their work is, especially on those days when they feel it is not. Got a friend who’s a teacher? Use these quotes to create a quick card, bookmark or an inspirational poster. They are also perfect for placing on pages of a scrapbook.

1. I touch the future. I teach.  – Christa McAuliffe

2. What the teacher is, is more important than what he teaches. – Karl Menninger

3. Treat people as if they were what they ought to be and you help them become what they are capable of becoming.  – Goethe

4. Education is not the filling of a pail but the lighting of a fire.  – William Butler Yeats

5. A hundred years from now, it will not matter what kind of car I drove, what kind of house I lived in, how much money I had in the bank…but the world may be a better place because I made a difference in the life of a child.  – Forest Witchcraft
