Philosophical Quotes, Thought-Provoking Sayings Related Quotes Hmmm Philosophy Truth Wise Words We are more often treacherous through weakness than through calculation. ~François VI de la Rochefoucault A man with one watch knows what time it is; a man with two watches is never quite sure.

The obscure we see eventually. Even a clock that does not work is right twice a day. Losing an illusion makes you wiser than finding a truth.

We are all but recent leaves on the same old tree of life and if this life has adapted itself to new functions and conditions, it uses the same old basic principles over and over again. The obstacle is the path.

7 Resources for Teaching and Learning Vocabulary One of my teaching assignments this semester is to work with students who need extra help preparing for the SAT (all 11th grade students in my school are required to take it). I split the responsibility with a mathematics teacher. My focus is on helping the students develop their reading skills and knowledge of vocabulary. Vocab Ahead offers online study rooms in which students can take practice vocabulary quizzes. Wordia is a free visual, video dictionary. Word Stash is a free service that describes itself as "half vocabulary builder, half dictionary, and full awesome." Knoword is a fun and challenging game that tests your ability to match definitions to words. Flashcards, either online or physical, still seem to be one of the preferred methods of studying vocabulary words. Words, Words, Words is a free vocabulary app for Android from Socratica. MyVocabulary.com offers free vocabulary lessons, word lists, and word puzzles designed for middle school and high school students.
