Handwritten: Your Favourite Quotes



Recommended Posts

Hi all! I'm giving English lessons to an Iranian man who loves to jot down quotes and expressions that he finds interesting. Last week, he said he wanted to learn how to write and read cursive -- something he's worked on before, but has struggled with.

 

I'd love it if you'd pitch in and jot down a quote or two on paper for him to practice reading! I'll send him this way, and he can practice deciphering our beautiful (and often not-so-beautiful) writing.

 

I'll jump in soon... is someone brave enough to get us started?

A sincere man am I
From the land where palm trees grow,
And I want before I die
My soul's verses to bestow.
 
All those moments will be lost in time.
Like tears in rain.
Time to die.

"Everybody's gotta die, but nobody's gotta give up."

 

"They can't hunt you if you don't run."

 

 

I know it's not on paper, but not even I can read what I write, so let us be fair to him.

Sorry, but Goethe wrote this in German:

 

"Was glänzt ist für den Augenblick geboren; das Echte bleibt der Nachwelt unverloren."

 

(What glitters is born for the sake of the moment; what's true shall not be lost to posterity.)

And another western:

 

- "You've just kicked the s... out of an innocent man!"

- "Innocent of what?"

 

- "Well, I guess they had it comming."

- "We all have it coming, Kid."

 

(Gene Hackman and Clint Eastwood in The Unforgiven, by the way)

Give him the best, don't settle for less:

 

It was a dark and stormy night; the rain fell in torrents — except at occasional intervals, when it was checked by a violent gust of wind which swept up the streets (for it is in London that our scene lies), rattling along the housetops, and fiercely agitating the scanty flame of the lamps that struggled against the darkness.” — Edward George Bulwer-Lytton, Paul Clifford (1830)

A couple of many favorite quotes

“When the historians of education do equal and exact justice to all who have contributed toward educational progress, they will devote several pages to those revolutionists who invented steel pens and blackboards.” V.T. Thayer, 1928

Ooo, nice blue. Now that I'm all about the blue may I ask what it is . . . ?
