Making a Beautiful Quote

One of my favourite blogs to read is Quoteflections.  It’s always good for a quote or two (or three or four) on any given day.  I like to use quotes in presentations myself so a resource like this is so helpful.  For today, as an example, the shortest day of the year, we’re inspired by “The Shortest Day“.

I found myself off on a tangent this morning.  On Facebook, one of the people I follow had shared this wisdom “If you want to see a person’s true character watch how they treat animals.” It’s great wisdom; I agree totally; but somehow the quote didn’t seem right.  I did some poking around at QuoteInvestigator to see the origin.  I found this article.  “You Can Easily Judge the Character of a Man by How He Treats Those Who Can Do Nothing for Him“.  While this dog lover appreciated the first quote, this second one was closer to what I had remembered.

A beautiful quote deserves a beautiful presentation.

I decided to use Quozio to dress it up.

Quozio is a slick quick in and out site for just this purpose. It’s just a matter of providing the quote and the person who said it…

and then choose the type of design that you want.

Scroll through the designs until you find the one that you want.  Quozio provides a huge collection of colours and fonts.  Your only challenge will be deciding which one that you’ll use.

You’ll see the obligatory social media sharing buttons or create your own account and save your quotes.  Your quote is just a jpg image so it’s easily saved locally for further use.

If you or your students are looking for the perfect tool for creating memorable quotation designs for presentation, documents, or anywhere that needs a graphic, check out Quozio.
