Waking your kids up early for school after a long summer of backyard baseball, day camp, and endless playdates may not be their idea of fun—and who can blame them? To make the transition to the classroom a little easier (and a little less painful), we've rounded up some inspirational school quotes that'll hopefully pump them up for their first day. These motivating quotes about school life stress the power of education, the determination to succeed, and the importance of never giving up on your dreams. (Maybe you'll find them inspirational too!) Share this sage advice from Oprah, Eleanor Roosevelt, and others with your grumbling teenager or read aloud one or two of Dr. Seuss' inspiring rhyming lines to your elementary schooler before ushering her onto the school bus. Pro tip: Buying them a new backpack and packing them a tasty good-for-you snack is an easy way to lift their spirits too!
