Famous quotes containing the words week, hour and/or work:

    Young children constantly invent new explanations to account for complex processes. And since their inventions change from week to week, furnishing the “correct” explanation is not quite so important as conveying a willingness to discuss the subject. Become an “askable parent.”

    But with his timorous dreams was still awaked.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
