quotation-marks

Do you know any great quotes about literacy? Here’s a few that I’ve collected. I’d love to expand my collection. Let me know in the comments.

“Frederick Douglass taught that literacy is the path from slavery to freedom. There are many kinds of slavery and many kinds of freedom, but reading is still the path.”
― Carl Sagan

“I want to be a creature that’s half bee, half the letter B. That way I can pollinate the world with my literacy.”
― Jarod Kintz

“Comics are a gateway drug to literacy.”
― Art Spiegelman

“Literacy is a bridge from misery to hope. It is a tool for daily life in modern society. It is a bulwark against poverty, and a building block of development, an essential complement to investments in roads, dams, clinics and factories. Literacy is a platform for democratization, and a vehicle for the promotion of cultural and national identity. Especially for girls and women, it is an agent of family health and nutrition. For everyone, everywhere, literacy is, along with education in general, a basic human right…. Literacy is, finally, the road to human progress and the means through which every man, woman and child can realize his or her full potential.”
― Kofi Annan
