Diane Ravitch Quotes

"If we continue on the present course, with big foundations and the federal government investing heavily in opening more charter schools, the result is predictable. Charter schools in urban centers will enroll the motivated children of the poor, while the regular public schools will become schools of last resort for those who never applied or were rejected."

Earl Blumenauer Quotes

Sam Byers Quotes

"There was, Katherine speculated, no possible way of concealing his Englishness, or any English persons Englishness for that matter. You could spot them immediately - pasty white; muffin bellied; Rorschached with quasi-Celtic tattoos."

Norbert Wiener Quotes

"We are swimming upstream against a great torrent of disorganization...In this, our main obligation is to establish arbitrary enclaves of order and system...It is the greatest possible victory to be, to continue to be, and to have been. No defeat can deprive us of the success of having existed for some moment of time in a universe that seems indifferent to us.This is no defeatism...The declaration of our own nature and the attempt to build up an enclave of organization in the face of natures overwhelming tendency to disorder is an insolence against the gods and the iron necessity that they impose. Here lies tragedy, but here lies glory too...All this represents the manner in which I believe I have been able to add something positive to the pessimism of...the existensialists. I have not replaced the gloom of existence by a philosophy which is optimistic in any Pollyanna sense, but...with a positive attitude toward the universe and toward our life in it."

Michael Korda Quotes

"Ask a book publisher how many copies a book has sold, and he or she, presuming youre not the author, will probably try to remember the size of the first printing, then double it. If youre the author, the publisher will try to remember the number of copies that were shipped and cut that in half in order to avoid encouraging you to expect a big royalty check."

Pete McCloskey Quotes

"The result was, when Congress convened in January 1971, everyone was now an environmentalist. They had seen a new force, college students, who favored the environment."

James Hogg Quotes

"He was scarcely then a year old, and knew so little of herding that he had never turned a sheep in his life; but as soon as he discovered it was his duty to do so I can never forget with what anxiety and eagerness he learned his different evolutions."

Brooke DOrsay Quotes

"Even if I have only 15 minutes, I knock out some toning moves or get in a burst of cardio."

Quotes About Thinking Of Your Future

"His dreams contained no stories at all, but only the hard stones of thoughts: the unimaginably unlikely coincidence of being alive at the same time as the love of your life, the frequency with which a person was expected to bear the body and the burden of someone else, the idiocy of thinking that kindness can protect the person who is kind, and worst of all, the bottomless pit of truth that he had suddenly, sickeningly seen: that the world to come was not an afterlife at all, but simply this world, to come- the future world, your own future, that you were creating for yourself with every choice you made in it." - Author: Dara Horn

Quotes About Relating To Books

"In the year Ten Million, according to Koradubian, there would be a tremendous house-cleaning. All records relating to the period between the death of Christ and the year One Million A.D. would be hauled to the dumps and burned. This would be done, said Koradubian, because museums and archives would be crowding the living right off the Earth. The million-year period to which the burned junk related would be summed up in history books in one sentence, according to Koradubian: Following the death of Jesus Christ, there was a period of readjustment that lasted for approximately one million years." - Author: Kurt Vonnegut

Quotes About Higher Moral Ground

"USURY: Everybodys looking for the job in which you never have to pay anyone their pound of flesh. Self-employed nirvana. A lot of artists like to think of themselves as uncompromising; a lot of management consultants wont tell you what they do until theyve sunk five pints. I dont think anybody should give themselves air just because they dont have to hand over a pound of flesh every day at 5pm, and I dont think anyone should beat themselves with broken glass because they do. If youre an artist, well, good for you. Thank your lucky stars every evening and dance in the garden with the fairies. But dont fool yourself that you occupy some kind of higher moral ground. You have to work for that. Writing a few lines, painting a pretty picture - that just wont do it." - Author: Zadie Smith

Quotes About Campfire

"The incident with Dawn hadnt been one of my finer moments. I honestly hadnt expected to break any bones when I shoved her into a tree. Still, the incident had given me a dangerous reputation. The story had gained legendary status, and I liked to imagine that it was still being told around campfires late at night. Judging by the look on the girls face, it was." - Author: Richelle Mead

Quotes About Pisa

"Ponoćna palača drugi je roman koji sam objavio, 1994., i tvori, zajedno s Princem magle, Rujanskim svjetlima i Marinom, seriju "mladenačkih" romana koje sam napisao prije Sjene vjetra. Iskreno, nikad baš nisam shvatio što znači "mladenački roman". Samo znam da sam, kad sam ih napisao, bio dosta mlađi nego danas i da je pri objavljivanju moja zamisao bila da će roman, ako sam posao obavio dobro, sigurno zainteresirati mlade čitatelje između devet i devedeset godina." - Author: Carlos Ruiz Zafón

Quotes About Life And Love And Death

"My peak? Would I even have one? I hardly had had anything you could call a life. A few ripples. some rises and falls. But thats it. Almost nothing. Nothing born of nothing. Id loved and been loved, but I had nothing to show. It was a singularly plain, featureless landscape. I felt like I was in a video game. A surrogate Pacman, crunching blindly through a labyrinth of dotted lines. The only certainty was my death." - Author: Haruki Murakami
