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.

[rebelmouse-image 18360512 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

"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!

[rebelmouse-image 18980047 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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.

[rebelmouse-image 18977392 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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!

There are just some things in life that are not necessary knowledge.

Maybe we always hold out that tiny bit of hope we will one day be on Jeopardy... because you never know.

It's the creepy facts about life that leave me wondering and reeling.

RedditorsPanzer_ace_8wanted to compare notes on the things we're aware of that maybe we wish we could forget. They asked:

"What’s a disturbing fact you know?"

Hitchhikers Describe The Most Memorable Ride A Stranger Has Ever Given Them

Hitchhiking. It has to be one of the most dangerous things a person can do.

There are too many movies where a hitchhiker falls victim to some psycho, and they're shocked it's happening.

Like... Hello?!?! You got into some stranger's car. How could you not get killed?

Also, all throughout childhood years we tell kids to NEVER get into a stranger's car.

But once we're 18 that rule seems to no longer apply.

I feel like it should be MORE prescient in adulthood.

But I'm sure all the survivors have quite the tale to share.

RedditorWestTexasOilmanwanted all of the road travelers to share some memories about past rides. They asked:

"Current or Former Hitchhikers of Reddit; What person that stopped or gave you a ride was the most memorable? Why?"

Americans Break Down The Things They Appreciate Most About The U.S.

Let's put this up front: the United States of America is not the greatest country in the world.

It's just a fact. We're not tops in the world in education, our maternity leave for new mothers pales in comparison to most European countries, which is to say nothing of our healthcare as a whole, and our average income per household?

8th. Last we checked, that's not 1st.

It's not all doom and gloom though. There are still a lot of things to love about the good ol' U. S. of A. And if you love something, you fight for it, to make it better, and truly try to achieve the ranking of "best."
