Famous quotes containing the words list of, figures, famous, list and/or historical:

    Do your children view themselves as successes or failures? Are they being encouraged to be inquisitive or passive? Are they afraid to challenge authority and to question assumptions? Do they feel comfortable adapting to change? Are they easily discouraged if they cannot arrive at a solution to a problem? The answers to those questions will give you a better appraisal of their education than any list of courses, grades, or test scores.
    Lawrence Kutner (20th century)

    The figures of the past go cloaked.
    They walk in mist and rain and snow
    And go, go slowly, but they go.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    What climbs the stair?
    Nothing that common women ponder on
    If you are worth my hope! Neither Content
    Nor satisfied Conscience, but that great family
    Some ancient famous authors misrepresent,
    The Proud Furies each with her torch on high.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    Lawrence Kutner (20th century)

    Among the virtues and vices that make up the British character, we have one vice, at least, that Americans ought to view with sympathy. For they appear to be the only people who share it with us. I mean our worship of the antique. I do not refer to beauty or even historical association. I refer to age, to a quantity of years.
    William Golding (b. 1911)
