Famous quotes containing the word types:

Career hunters should be driven out, as well as leaders who use labor for political ends. These types are menaces to the advancement of labor.

    Camille Paglia (b. 1947)

We must widen the range of topics and goals, the types of situations we offer and their degree of structure, the kinds and combinations of resources and materials, and the possible interactions with things, peers, and adults.
    Loris Malaguzzi (1920–1994)
