    tomorrow is the first day of school. i teach third grade.

    i have a cool portrait of optimus prime im using on my door along with some key "character" vocabulary like: respect responsibility, effort, honesty, cooperation etc...

    does anyone have a cool quote from optimus i could use as a motivational message the kids can see when they enter the room on a daily basis. it doesnt have to really be an optimus prime quote, just as long as it sounds like something he would say to a class of third graders. :)  im going to sleep on it, but maybe one of you will be able to help me with something cool.

    What was that thing he said in the cartoon about boobies?

    Or:

    'One shall stand, one shall fall' because no-one's ever heard that one before...

    From Heavy Metal War

    "In this vast universe is anything truly forever?"

    Ehh. . . I don't know how well that quote would work for a 3rd grade class, but I always liked it.

    From "The Key to Vector Sigma part 2

    "Let them think for themselves- to grow in knowledge and wisdom. And let them always value freedom and life wherever they find it."

    Oh just curious- what's the pic of Optimus you have for your room?

    Geez, school's starting already?? Seems early.

    Anyhoo, here's my ideas:

    (G1 Kremzeek): "Oh, here comes that sinking feeling..."
    (G1 Sea Change): "You guys are on your own this time... and good luck!"

    thanks for the ideas. i still havent gotten a quote up. we have been quite busy. :) 

    i think Ill keep things open so i can change the quote from time to time. i like a few of the ideas youve already posted and ill use some of these. ive also got a great book about wisdom, happiness, and success a good friend of mine gave me. i think i could pull some from there to keep the quotes coming along all year long.

    i have goofed around a few times and did some mildly random prime quotes in his voice and the kids are asking "when prime is going to say something else." :) 

    the picture is a cut out from the front cover of the faith leader box. it is just a head shot, but it is large and really sharp looking. i didnt want to use anything that had a weapon in it, lest i draw the ire of our new principle.

    Arguably the pinnacle of The Transformers, and possibly 80s television in general.

    I agree with Aenaroth. Without having to give too much background, other than "he turns into a truck," you could get a couple of quotes about changing. Like, "We all have the power to change ourselves!" and include a picture of Optimus turning into a truck.


    That, or "We will kill them all.

    With kindness."

    It's from "The Key to Vector Sigma part 2" when he's asking Vector Sigma to grant life to the Aerialbots. Even back then it sounded epic. :)

    That's understandable. Besides, there's lots of times when Prime doesn't carry his weapon around.
