A child born today in the United Kingdom stands a ten times greater chance of being admitted to a mental hospital than to a university ...

R. D. Laing

Victor Hugo
Do not feed children on maudlin sentimentalism or dogmatic religion; give them nature
Luther Burbank
Don't let schooling interfere with your education.
Mark Twain
Don't try to fix the students, fix ourselves first. The good teacher makes the poor student good and the good student superior. When our students fail, we, as teachers, too, have failed.
Marva Collins
