Famous quotes containing the words list of, interest, scientific, list and/or special:
“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)
“One should never make ones debut with a scandal. One should reserve that to give an interest to ones old age.”
—Oscar Wilde (18541900)
“Marxism is not scientific: at the best, it has scientific prejudices.”
—Albert Camus (19131960)

—Ralph Waldo Emerson (18031882)
“The universal social pressure upon women to be all alike, and do all the same things, and to be content with identical restrictions, has resulted not only in terrible suffering in the lives of exceptional women, but also in the loss of unmeasured feminine values in special gifts. The Drama of the Woman of Genius has too often been a tragedy of misshapen and perverted power.”
—Anna Garlin Spencer (18511931)
