Blog entry The Gift of Words

04 October 2012

It’s our birthday (if you didn't know)! And to celebrate, we’re a launching a subject called Famous Quotes.

A few weeks ago, we asked you to helps us grow this subject. Your response, as always, was great! We had over 250 submissions of quotes by some of the greatest thinkers in history, and a few people we’d prefer to forget but we've included nonetheless as they changed the world.

So! The Famous Quotes subject is live and ready for you test your smarts.

If you find a quote that is particularly inspiring/interesting/funny, don’t forget to share it with your friends and family! The more people who know about Freerice, the more rice we can raise, and the more people we can feed.

We will be adding to this subject through the year, so you can still suggest quotes using the same form.

- Play the Famous Quotes subject

- Suggest a famous quote

- Join our Birthday celebrations

Good luck!

Speaking of new subjects, I would like the languages section to include a lot of phrases. That way, we could learn how to use the new words that we've learned from here.

Speaking of new subjects, I would like the language section to include a lot of phrases, not just words.
