What is in a quote?

The purpose of a quote, to be quoted, is in the eye of wonder. Excepted by the peer and enamoured by the mass, we see these short statements from idealized members of society, as confirmation of our beliefs. A voice that echoes our feelings with words we cannot have said ourselves.
So what is in a quote, self acknowledgement or reprisal of our spirits?

These are my favourite quotes, and links to inspiring individuals that I feel will be quoted for many generations to come. People who's passions are to make a better place for all of us.

Creativity and the future of our childrens education.

It is a miracle that curiosity survives formal education.

Albert Einstein

Creativity expert Sir Ken Robinson challenges the way we're educating our children. He champions a radical rethink of our school systems, to cultivate creativity and acknowledge multiple types of intelligence.
