This 79 slide PowerPoint is an extensive list of memorable quotations from famous people throughout history--from antiquity through modern times, from Confucius and Einstein to Steve Jobs. Each bit of wisdom is inspiring, moralistic, and/or thought provoking. Each slide has a quotation and three or four guiding questions. For most slides, there is a question or two regarding analysis/interpretation, and then an application question where students apply the quote to their own lives. My students do one of these slides as a warm-up each Friday, and most really look forward to it. I have students compile the list in a journal, so that they have a list of memorable quotes to take home with them at the end of the year. I have compiled this list slowly over the last ten years or so. In essence, they are my favorite quotes.
