Famous quotes containing the words receiving and/or graduate:

    No man lives without jostling and being jostled; in all ways he has to elbow himself through the world, giving and receiving offence.
    Thomas Carlyle (1795–1881)

    In the United States, it is now possible for a person eighteen years of age, female as well as male, to graduate from high school, college, or university without ever having cared for, or even held, a baby; without ever having comforted or assisted another human being who really needed help. . . . No society can long sustain itself unless its members have learned the sensitivities, motivations, and skills involved in assisting and caring for other human beings.
    Urie Bronfenbrenner (b. 1917)
