Learning for Life: Educational Words of Wisdom, by Teri Ann Berg Olsen
There are many books of quotations, but Learning for Life is the only one written specifically with Christian homeschoolers in mind. Learning for Life includes almost 3,000 quotations by more than 1,000 people (including a collection of Bible verses) on teaching, learning, and the pursuit of knowledge. This is a convenient resource for students who need quotations for written or spoken presentations. References will make them seem so smart!
Learning for Life has an easy to use layout and would be an excellent time saver for the busy college student who is looking to add insightful quotes to a term paper or speech but doesn’t have time to spend searching in library books or on the internet. Quotations can be useful as a catchy introduction as well as to provide support or controversy, history or humor. Familiar as well as mind-challenging quotes can make an otherwise ordinary presentation into a memorable one.
The sections of thoughtful quotes and how they are divided into areas of life is suitable for browsing, or look for your favorite authors in the handy index. The 420-page softcover book also includes biographical notes including information on famous educators and famous homeschoolers. Learning for Life would make a unique and useful gift for homeschoolers, Christian teachers, education majors, speakers, writers, history buffs, and book lovers. As stated in the book, Learning for Life isn’t just a book of quotations… “it’s a handbook of living lessons on learning!”
