Quotes from Professor Oaks

Professor Oaks is my "History of English Language" teacher and he is my favorite. He is hilarious and I am connected to him and his family in the most random ways. In honor of Professor Oaks, have some quotes.

"My dad is like a real-life Forrest Gump...except he's not crazy..." (His dad is Elder Oaks!)

"You've got to lose a little respect for a verb that would compromise its verb strength."

"'Help' was staring at the abyss and said 'I'll become a weak verb.'"

"So I can clearly not choose the glass in front of me!" - imitating the Sicilian from "The Princess Bride"
