Seems like we all have particular memories and thoughts about school,and so I thought it would be interesting to share some quotes about school from some famous people.

Memories and thoughts about school are as varied as the students that clamor from classroom to classroom.  And, thank God for the teachers who pour a wealth of knowledge and hopefully wisdom into the brains of our young people, who may not fully appreciate that right at the moment.

To celebrate our many outstanding schools in the Grand Valley, I searched Brainy Quote for some interesting, poignant, and sometimes humorous quotes from some famous people. Of course, I'm not famous, but I had to throw my own quote in at the end for good measure.
