Marjorie Spock Quotes

"In a universe where all life is in movement, where ever fact seen in perspective is totally engaging, we impose stillness on lively young bodies, distort reality to dullness, make action drudgery. Those who submit - as the majority does - are conditioned to a life lived without their human birthright: work done with the joy and creativity of love.But what are schools for if not to make children fall so deeply in love with the world that they really want to learn about it? That is the true business of schools. And if they succeed in it, all other desirable developments follow of themselves.In a proper school, no fact would ever be presented as a soulless one, for the simple reason that there is no such thing. Every facet of reality, discovered where it lives, startles with its wonder, beauty, meaning."

Quotes About Making Money Rap

"The chronicler would abandon any idea of making a detailed report of all the other ills that are afflicting most of the nearly three hundred inmates being kept in this inhumane quarantine, but he could not fail to mention at least two cases of fairly advanced cancer, for the authorities had no humanitarian scruples when rounded up the blind and confining them here, they even stated that the laws once made is the same for everyone and that democracy is incompatible with preferential treatment. As cruel fate would have it, amongst all these inmates there is only one doctor, and an ophthalmologist at that, the last thing we need." - Author: José Saramago

Quotes About Sogni

"Un poeta somma in sé lAtlantico e il leone. Se luno vi sommerge, laltro vi addenta. Se sfuggiamo alle zanne, cadiamo in preda ai flutti. Un uomo che ha il potere di distruggere le illusioni è al tempo stesso belva e onda. Le illusioni stanno allanima come latmosfera alla terra. Toglietele quella tenera coltre daria, e vedrete la pianta morire, svanire i colori. La terra su cui noi camminiamo non è che brace estinta. E marga quella che calpestiamo, e ciottoli ingrati ci feriscono il piede. La verità è un fulmine che ci annienta. La vita è un sogno. E il risveglio che ci uccide. Colui che ci deruba dei nostri sogni ci deruba della nostra vita." - Author: Virginia Woolf
