Famous quotes containing the words schools and/or charter:

    Our good schools today are much better than the best schools of yesterday. When I was your age and a pupil in school, our teachers were our enemies.
    Can any thing ... be more painful to a friendly mind, than a necessity of communicating disagreeable intelligence? Indeed it is sometimes difficult to determine, whether the relator or the receiver of evil tidings is most to be pitied.
    Frances Burney (1752–1840)

    Farewell! thou art too dear for my possessing,
    And like enough thou know’st thy estimate:
    The charter of thy worth gives thee releasing;
    My bonds in thee are all determinate.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
