“The future is built on brains, not prom court, as most people can tell you after attending their high school reunion. But youd never know it by talking to kids or listening to the messages they get from the culture and even from their schools.”

“The colicky baby who becomes calm, the quiet infant who throws temper tantrums at two, the wild child at four who becomes serious and studious at six all seem to surprise their parents. It is difficult to let go of ones image of a child, say goodbye to the child a parent knows, and get accustomed to this slightly new child inhabiting the known childs body.”
—Ellen Galinsky (20th century)
“Oh who and oh who will sing Jesus down
to help with struggling and doing without and being colored
all through blue Monday?
Till way next Sunday?”
—Robert Earl Hayden (19131980)
