Phillip Done Quotes

"The main reason I became a teacher is that I like being the first one to introduce kids to words and music and people and numbers and concepts and idea that they have never heard about or thought about before. I like being the first one to tell them about Long John Silver and negative numbers and Beethoven and alliteration and "Oh, What a Beautiful Morning" and similes and right angles and Ebenezer Scrooge. . . 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 havent always read. You havent always known how to write. You werent 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. Thats why I became a teacher."

Patrick DeWitt Quotes

"Your skin is prickly from fatigue and pain and there is a hissing in your ears. Time passes and the pills are taking hold like a glowing white planet coming into view. A reverse eclipse.

You are awake but dreaming. "The earth is not beautiful but the universe is," you say."

Quotes About Sharps

"This is where I go, when I go:Its a room with no windows and no doors, and walls that are thin enough for me to see and hear everything but too thick to break through.Im there, but Im not there.I am pounding to be let out, but nobody can hear me. This is where I go, when I go: To a country where everyones face looks different from mine, and the language is the act of not speaking, and noise is everywhere in the air we breathe. I am doing what the Romans do in Rome; I am trying to communicate, but no one has bothered to tell me that these people cannot hear.This is where I go, when I go:Somewhere completely, unutterably orange.This is where I go, when I go:To the place where my body becomes a piano full of black keys only—the sharps and the flats, when everyone know that to play a song other people want to hear, you need some white keys.This is why I come back:To find those white keys." - Author: Jodi Picoult
