Famous quotes containing the words school, high, rouge and/or magnet:

    What a wise and good parent will desire for his own children a nation must desire for all children.
    —Consultative Committee On The Prima. Report of the Consultative Committee on the Primary School (HADOW)

    From the beginning, the placement of [Clarence] Thomas on the high court was seen as a political end justifying almost any means. The full story of his confirmation raises questions not only about who lied and why, but, more important, about what happens when politics becomes total war and the truth—and those who tell it—are merely unfortunate sacrifices on the way to winning.
    Jane Mayer, U.S. journalist, and Jill Abramson b. 1954, U.S. journalist. Strange Justice, p. 8, Houghton Mifflin (1994)

    With the old kindness, the old distinguished grace,
    She lies, her lovely piteous head amid dull red hair
    Propped upon pillows, rouge on the pallor of her face.
    She would not have us sad because she is lying there,
    And when she meets our gaze her eyes are laughter-lit,
    Her speech a wicked tale that we may vie with her....
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    While this magnetic,
    Peripatetic
    Lover he lived to learn,
    By no endeavor
    Can a magnet ever
    Attract a Silver Churn!
    Sir William Schwenck Gilbert (1836–1911)
