 Kids Blogging Day 2012
Mr. K's Reading Students 12 of Something...

12.12.12 A Special Blogging Day for Students Around the World OUR FAVORITE QUOTES (some from books) by Nora and Eva

1-“Yes, I would love to name our salad fork, because it is a Kilter salad fork, and is so very different from ordinary salad forks.” I chose this because it’s just so funny, mostly because they are talking in code. They are naming an alliance.
 2- “Tea should be as bitter as wormwood and as sharp as a two-edged sword.” I selected this quote because it is simple and clear.
3-“And we sit there, on the edge of the dock, and we fill the ocean for a while” I like this because as you think of them, sitting on the dock crying, it’s so emotional.
 4-“Be the change you wish to see in the world.” I like this quote because it makes you want to do something—big.
 5-“You were your mother’s treasure” This shows the connection between a mother and daughter, even if the mother is dead and the daughter doesn’t remember her.
 6-“In dreams, we enter a world entirely our own.” I chose this quote because it is true.
7-“Though murder is definitely the worst thing a kid could do, in her mind lying isn’t far from that.” This is saying that everything we do wrong, even the little things, is a crime, even if we don’t think so.
8-“Rules and school are tools for fools. I don’t give two mules for rules.” I like this quote because, as is 6, it is true.
9-“You make fun a’ me now, but someday I’ll be your boss.” A summary, in a nutshell, of what happens to bullies.
10- “P.S.- I enjoy pops.” I enjoy this quote because it makes no sense.
 11- “And she was not in the pretty coach drawn by magical pink ponies you might expect, but a white minivan” This shows that no one is really perfect.
12- “Never, never, never give up.” I like this quote because it is good advice for life.

  3. Hi Nora and Eva,

    Thank you for participating in my #Blog121212 Project. I enjoyed reading your post of 12 favorite quotes and 12 favorite books. One of your quotes is also a favorite of mine - “Be the change you wish to see in the world.” And I like the reason you stated. Your book list gives me some ideas for reading I can do over my Christmas holiday. Reading is one of my favorite past times and I'm always glad to get recommendations from others.

    Happy Holidays to you.
