Weekly Geeks #23

This week's Weekly Geeks assignment is to repeat a previous w.g. assignment. I chose #17, which is posting a quote every day. I really enjoyed looking for new and old quotes during this assignment. I found today's quote in Gabriel Garcia Marquez's memoir Living to Tell the Tale.

"From a very early age I've had to interrupt my education to go to school."-George Bernard Shaw

Now I'm off to complete my daily word count for Nanowrimo.

Wonderful quote! (And one reason why I homeschool my kids!)

I'm a sophomore in college and often I feel like I need to homeschool myself.

wonderful! I'll come be every day to read your quotes! good one.

Maree said...

That's a great start. I've been meaning to read Marquez's autobiography so that might inspire me to get it out of the library this week.
Great quote, too!

Good luck with nanowrimo!

I agree with Ali. A very good reason for homeschooling! Kids who have a great love of learning and gobble up knowledge and creativity at home sometimes feel so stifled in school.

God knows I'm feeling so stifled these days.

I love quotes, but as I have a hugely busy week ahead and can't guarantee I'll get to the computer every day I decided to ask for questions on my up and coming reads
