Bulletin Board "Hang Ups"

Looking for something to hang on your wall that will catch the mind as well as the eye? These Hang Ups should be just the ticket. We’ve collected dozens of quotations, grouped them by topic, and created colorful, printable, 8.5" x 11" Adobe Acrobat files that are ready to use. All you do is print ’em out and hang ’em up. Four sets are complete:

"Lines to Learning" – musings on education and knowledge
"Horizon Lines" – thoughts on greatness and achievement
"Writer’s Blocks" – quotations about writing and poetry
"Goal Lines" – inspirations from sports

We’ll be adding other sets in the next few days with an eye toward having the entire project online before the start of school.

Use the "send to a friend" button at the top of this page to share these quotes with your colleagues, and check back frequently to see what’s new here!
