Students Reveal The One Quote They'll Never Forget From Their Favorite Teacher

[rebelmouse-image 18360508 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Teachers are the sages we take for granted. They take little to no cash in order to shape the lives of children who do not share their DNA. And they do their duty with diligence and fortitude. Many teachers impart life wisdom in the simplest of ways and the simplest of sentences.

Redditor [aveconks][1] asked What is the most famous line of one of your teachers that you will never forget?_Take a minute and think back. You'll remember this person if you try hard enough. _

SHREK IS LIFE!

I don't know about most famous, but definitely my favorite was when some kids were describing the beginning of Skyrim to our Math Teacher.

Student: So it starts with you as a prisoner that is about to get executed, but just before they kill you a dragon shows up and starts destroying the city

Math Teacher: Oh, So kinda like Shrek?

FLASH THE BLING! BLING!

Teacher puts on an orange hat. "This is my highlighter hat. If I am wearing it, what I'm saying is important."

And it was true, he would just randomly put it on mid lecture.

OUCH. TELL ME HOW YOU REALLY FEEL.

"College is not a haven for geniuses, but a hospital for the ignorant"

-old curmudgeon Chem 101 professor

HAND ME A TEA PLEASE!

[rebelmouse-image 18360511 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

One day in an algebra class I had a cold, and the teacher offered me some tea to help. I politely refused, but then jokingly said, "back in the old days, they didn't have all these meds and teas to help, how did THEY deal with being sick?"

The teacher replied, "They didn't... they died."

I had some tea after that.

YOU JUST BE YOU.

"If you are what you eat then I'm fast, cheap, and easy."

My general studies teacher used to say this all of the time. And it's pretty much the only thing I remember from her classes.

LET IT GO!! LET IT GO!!

[rebelmouse-image 18980043 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

It was my senior year of high school and my girlfriend had recently broken up with me. The art teacher had told me _"Let it go little by little like small boats off to sea." _It withstood the test of time and I still remember it word for word almost a decade later.

AND FAILURE IS OK. KEEP GOING.

After making a bad joke that nobody laughed at: "Oh well, jokes are like people: some of them are failures."

STOP. WAIT A MINUTE.

[rebelmouse-image 18980044 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

During the midterm for my college geography course, our professor told us a joke to lighten the mood.

"If Russia invaded Turkey from the rear, would Greece help?"

Nothing lightens the mood more during a test than an sex joke.

I SEE THE LIGHT!

"Alright kids were half way through the semester. You see that light at the end of the tunnel? You see it? That's a train. Welcome to the real world." - AP World History teacher

GOOD TO KNOW NOW.

Homework is optional, but you'll get a 0 if you don't do it.

EMBRACE THE "F"

[rebelmouse-image 18350116 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

"Let's talk about the three F's of biological imperatives. Fighting, fleeing and mating."

HANDS UP!

Law student here. Sitting in professor's office, he said:

"I'm hardly ever the smartest person in the room, but i'm never the dumbest."

I was the only other person sitting in the room.

UMM.. OK.

"There will be nothing about enzymes in the test next week"

Next week stares at Q1-20 on the enzymes section of the test.

ONE WAY OR ANOTHER...

[rebelmouse-image 18980048 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

My legal writing professor, who had a reputation for being unreasonably demanding, said something along the lines of, I'm going to teach you how to do things the hard way, so it's even easier to do it the easy way. I feel bad for people who only learn how to do things the easy way because it will feel impossible to have to do it the hard way.

PERFECT IS A LIE.

[rebelmouse-image 18980049 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

My grade 7 teacher told me this in response to the whole "Practice makes Perfect" statement. _"Practice makes better, nobody's perfect" _

7-11!!

[rebelmouse-image 18345604 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

My calc teacher in high school kept a list of places he would never go to ever again. Walmart was on it because he said they over priced eveyrthing. Burger King was on it because they moved their HQ to Canada to avoid taxes. By far the best one was 7-11. A 7-11 was build across the street from his favorite convenience store (can't remember the name) and to get to said store he'd have to do a u-turn before the intersection. However, since the 7-11 moved there a median was placed which didn't allow a u-turn. So, he'd have to now go around a block to get there, so he hated 7-11. About half a school year went by and he told us that 7-11 was off his list. Why? Because his wife bought him a banana slurpee. No joke he said this, "Hey class, 7-11 is off the list because of banana slurpees."

FOREVER!!

My health class professor sophomore year in high school.

"Remember kids, relationships aren't forever; herpes is."

STICK WITH DRAMA.

Don't worry, the worst thing that could happen is you survive and have to live in constant pain.

My electronics teacher in high school used to say this when students where nervous about doing something.

PREPARATION IS KEY!

Sex is an important part of life.

That is just a fact.

But sex is also about connection and intimacy.

So it's not a surprise when many relationships take a hit after the sex dries up.

It's not something to ignore.

It's the biggest problem in the world, but partners should discuss it.

RedditorItsyBitsyJoxywanted to hear about reasons to stick around with a partner when there is no sexy time. They asked:

"Would you be in a sexless relationship? What circumstance would you find acceptable for this?"

We all have things which get on our nerves.

Some people have a fairly high tolerance level, and are only truly perturbed by things which are beyond the bounds of common decency, or which are universally accepted as annoying or inconvenient.

Others are not so lucky, and tend to be set off by things which might go completely unnoticed by everyone else.

Redditor Onatic420 was curious to learn the things which instantly make others want to pull their hair out and scream, leading them to ask:

"What do you find annoying as f*ck?"

People Divulge The Biggest Lies Society Still Believes

How many of us heard the old saying "an apple a day keeps the doctor away" as a child?

Or were told by their parents that watching too much television would make your eyes fall out?

Needless to say, these, as well as other sayings and superstitions, were not 100% accurate, possibly even having no truth to them whatsoever

Rather, these were merely a way to encourage, or scare, children into better eating habits, or getting away from the TV once and a while.

Some however, have, took these and other unsubstantiated pieces of information literally, and continue to believe them to be true.

Redditor wste96 was curious to believe what other falsehoods people continue to believe, in spite of proof to the contrary, leading them to ask:

"What's the biggest lie ever told that we, as a society, still believe in?"
