Just think about what you know today. You read. You write. You work with numbers. You solve problems. We take all these things for granted. But of course you haven't always read. You haven't always known how to write. You weren't born knowing how to subtract 199 from 600. Someone showed you. There was a moment when you moved from not knowing to knowing, from not understanding to understanding. That's why I became a teacher."

What's the book that, a hundred years from now, everybody will look down on us for not having liked?" What do we say then?"

But it takes a lot of courage to live for someone, too."
