Fifty Things to Put into a Notebook: Quotations
Quotations are fantastic for a notebook because although they are normally short, they hold a wealth of information about the time period or person you are studying. A person’s life or work can often be summed up neatly in one pithy quote.
This quote by the artist Frieda Khalo is a good example. She is famous for her bold self-portraits, and this quote explains why she so frequently painted herself.
You can do any of the following with a quotation:
- use it for copywork
- use it for handwriting practice
- explain what it means
- explain its significance to the person’s life or the time period
- use it as a writing prompt to react to

There are entire websites devoted to quotes. Just search a topic or person to find interesting sayings.
