Homeschooling Thought Provokers

When I bumped into a link to a site of homeschooling quotes I am not sure what I expected to find, but once I started reading I just kept reading because I like quotes, and this is a good collection of thought provokers. From the site:

These life-learning, life-affirming quotations will help you find the right words to explain your homeschool lifestyle to skeptics … or help you take the homeschooling plunge … or maybe help you remember why you decided to homeschool in the first place!

Some are serious and some are just plain silly; enjoy them for what they are!

Here is one that has a special relevance for our times:

As Paul Goodman has said, and it cannot be said too often, at the turn of the century, when only six percent of our young even finished high school, and half or less of one percent went to college, the whole country was run by dropouts. But now all roads lead through school. To fail there is to fail everywhere.
~ John Holt

There are a lot more worth the time at Homeschool Quotes

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream.
~ Mark Twain
