Famous quotes containing the words school and/or high:

    Mary had a little lamb,
    Its fleece was white as snow,
    And every where that Mary went
    The lamb was sure to go;
    He followed her to school one day—
    That was against the rule,
    It made the children laugh and play,
    To see a lamb at school.
    Sarah Josepha Buell Hale (1788–1879)

    Whenever I dove in a breast high shoal,
    Wherever I ramped in the clover quilts,
    Whatsoever I did in the coal-
    Black night, I left my quivering prints.
    Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)
