    Harriet Beecher Stowe (1811–1896)

    We are all adult learners. Most of us have learned a good deal more out of school than in it. We have learned from our families, our work, our friends. We have learned from problems resolved and tasks achieved but also from mistakes confronted and illusions unmasked. . . . Some of what we have learned is trivial: some has changed our lives forever.
    Laurent A. Daloz (20th century)

    The management of fertility is one of the most important functions of adulthood.
    Germaine Greer (b. 1939)

    I, who am king of the matter I treat, and who owe an accounting for it to no one, do not for all that believe myself in all I write. I often hazard sallies of my mind which I mistrust.
    Michel de Montaigne (1533–1592)
