2 #BooksNotJust4Xmas – Quote of the Week!

Welcome to your chance to be inspired, intrigued, motivated, delighted…the list is endless…just like the quotations that we are going to share with you each week for the rest of term…

Hunt these out in literature, music or in the media.  How do these quotations reflect the world in which you live?

I can’t help but start with my favourite quotation of all time.

‘It was the best of times, it was the worst of times’ (Charles Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities)

Can you think of a time when something happened to you that was both challenging or tricky and amazing at the same time?
