  1. Ehsan Sehgal:

    A picture is an evaluation, for the eyes; similarly, writing is a quiz for the mind; first carries the choice and second transmits knowledge and wisdom.

  2. Kiri Pritchard-Mclean:

    I've pulled in all the favours and burned every bridge I have, and now we've got this amazing line-up of fantastic comedians and it looks like it's going to be a really fun night and that we might well set a record, which is lovely, so come along. Have a pub quiz team. Support your local pub and raise a load of money for charity.

  3. Jennifer Aniston:

    The only reason I knew [that I had it] was because I went to get a prescription for glasses, i had to wear these Buddy Holly glasses. One had a blue lens and one had a red lens. And I had to read a paragraph, and they gave me a quiz, gave me 10 questions based on what I’d just read, and I think I got three right. Then they put a computer on my eyes, showing where my eyes went when I read. My eyes would jump four words and go back two words, and I also had a little bit of a lazy eye, like a crossed eye, which they always have to correct in photos.

  4. Scholastic Inc.:

    The October 8, 2018 issue of NY Times Upfront contained an article about capital punishment, with a headline that referenced the perpetrator of the tragic Parkland shootings. A quiz in the accompanying teacher's guide also mentioned the perpetrator by name. The article and the quiz were intended only to provide a platform for meaningful conversations around the history, civics and social impact of the death penalty, we deeply regret if the use of this real life example added in any way to the ongoing suffering of the students, families and educators of the Parkland community.

  5. Harold Taylor:

    A student is not a professional athlete. ... He is not a little politician or junior senator looking for angles ... an amateur promoter, a glad-hander, embryo Rotarian, caf-society leader, quiz kid or man about town. A student is a person who is learning to fulfill his powers and to find ways of using them in the service of mankind.
