Polly Horvath Quotes

"The library in summer is the most wonderful thing because there you get books on any subject and read them each for only as long as they hold your interest, abandoning any that dont, halfway or a quarter of the way through if you like, and store up all that knowledge in the happy corners of your mind for your own self and not to show off how much you know or spit it back at your teacher on a test paper."

Christian Lorentzen Quotes

"NW" is full of split selves, people alienated from the very things they thought defined them. Their nostalgia -- for old movies, old songs, buses they dont ride anymore -- is less a salve than a form of pain."

Johannes P Muller Quotes

Quotes About Students Rights

"The corporate reform movement has co-opted progressive themes and language in the service of radical purposes. Advocating the privatization of public education is deeply reactionary. Disabling or eliminating teachers unions removes the strongest voice in each state to advocate for public education and to fight crippling budget cuts. In every state, classroom teachers are experts in education; they know what their students need, and their collective voice should be part of any public decision about school improvement. Stripping teachers of their job protections limits academic freedom. Evaluating teachers by the test scores of their students undermines professionalism and encourages teaching to the test. Claiming to be in the forefront of a civil rights movement while ignoring poverty and segregation is reactionary and duplicitous." - Author: Diane Ravitch

Quotes About Orcs

"Let me think! said Aragorn. And now may I make a right choice, and change the evil fate of this unhappy day! He stood silent for a moment. I will follow the Orcs, he said at last. I would have guided Frodo to Mordor and gone with him to the end but if I seek him now in the wilderness, I must abandon the captives to torment and death. My heart speaks clearly at last: the fate of the Bearer is in my hands no longer. The Company has played its part. Yet we that remain cannot forsake our companions while we have strength left. Come! We will go now. Leave all that can be spared behind! We will press on by day and dark!" - Author: J.R.R. Tolkien

Quotes About Endless Love Movie

"The frenzied hypernatalism of the womens magazines alone (and that includes People, Us, and InStyle), with their endless parade of perfect, "sexy" celebrity moms whove had babies, adopted babies, been to sperm banks, frozen their eggs for future use, hatched frozen eggs, had more babies, or adopted a small Tibetan village all to satisfy their "baby lust," is enough to make you want to get your tubes tied. (These profiles always insist that celebs all love being "moms" much, much more than they do their work, let alone being rich and famous, and that theyd spend every second with their kids if they didnt have that pesky blockbuster movie to finish.)" - Author: Susan Douglas
