Cinderella's Clock

A fun meme for the procrastination files: take some advice from Cinderella!

Don't wait 'til the clock strikes twelve to start studying.

Rereading

The quote is from C.S. Lewis, and I have read and re-read his Narnia books more times than I can count. The image shows the paperback book covers from the 1970s when I first visited the land of Narnia.

I can't imagine a man really enjoying a book and reading it only once. — C.S. Lewis

Reading Glasses

Wouldn't it be great if all we had to do was hand out glasses to people in order for them to learn how to read?

It reminds me of Joseph Smith and the "seer stones" (Urim & Thummim) he used in reading the Golden Plates; you can read more about that at Wikipedia.

Reading Glasses: Do you mean to tell me we spent all that time learning words when we could have just been wearing these magic spectacles?

Quotes from Children's Literature

Via an article in Edutopia, I found this lovely infographic of quotes from children's literature which was created by the AAA State of Play playground equipment company.

This is my favorite:


I am not afraid of storms,
for I am learning to sail my ship.
from Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
