I had a really nice time reading through Home Education by Charlotte Mason this summer with all of you! I loved underlining quotes and then sharing them with you on the blog. I thought it would be neat to gather all of my favorites quotes from the book into one place. So here you go! I hope you enjoy them and find yourself encouraged =)
