Favorite School Buildings Quotes

1. "The schools wear the blank faces of war buildings, their windows blown blind by rocks or guns or mortars. Their plaster is an acne of bullet marks. The huts and small houses crouch open and vulnerable; their doors are flimsy pieces of plyboard or sacks hanging and lank. Children and chickens and dogs scratch in the red, raw soil and stare at us as we drive through their open, eroding lives."
Author: Alexandra Fuller
2. "He had been a boy who liked to draw, according to my friend, so he became an architect. Children who drew,I learned, became architects; I had thought they became painters. My friend explained that it was not proper to become a painter; it couldn't be done. I resigned myself to architecture school and a long life of drawing buildings. It was a pity, for I disliked buildings, considering them only a stiffer and more ample form of clothing, and no more important."
Author: Annie Dillard
3. "The ultimate goal of the educational system is to shift to the individual the burden of pursing his own education. This will not be a widely shared pursuit until we get over our odd conviction that education is what goes on in school buildings and nowhere else."

4. "In the passenger seat, Nahil is all questions. Was Kabul safe? How was the food? Did he [Idris] get sick? Did he take pictures and videos of everything? He does his best. He describes for her the shell-blasted schools, the squatters living in roofless buildings, the beggars, the mud, the fickle electricity, but it's like describing music. He cannot bring it to life. Kabul's vivid, arresting details--the bodybuilding gym amid the rubble, for instance, a painting of Schwarzenegger on the window. Such details escape him now, and his descriptions sound to him generic, insipid, like those of an ordinary AP story."
Author: Khaled Hosseini
5. "If they burn your school, burn their children, if they destroy your buildings destroy their people if they tear down your homes tear down their families."
Author: M.F. Moonzajer
6. "Someone should say that; why we shouldn't burn their schools and destroy their buildings and infrastructures instead of burning our own homes."
Author: M.F. Moonzajer
7. "I'm at architecture school at UCLA.""Ooooh, I love architects. They have such big buildings."Oh Lord, let the floor open up and suck me into the ground. Better yet, take Will."Uh, not all of them are big. Some are quite small. It all depends on the client," Juan says."I'm sure yours are very, very big.""Yeah, well, I'm still in school, so I'm not really building much other than models at the moment." Poor Juan looks hideously uncomfortable."I bet you're really good with your hands, all that drawing and building."
