Famous quotes containing the words hall and/or lecture:
“Having children can smooth the relationship, too. Mother and daughter are now equals. That is hard to imagine, even harder to accept, for among other things, it means realizing that your own mother felt this way, toounsure of herself, weak in the knees, terrified about what in the world to do with you. It means accepting that she was tired, inept, sometimes stupid; that she, too, sat in the dark at 2:00 A.M. with a child shrieking across the hall and no clue to the childs trouble.”
—Anna Quindlen (20th century)
“I find quite as much material for a lecture in those points wherein I have failed, as in those wherein I have been moderately successful.”
—Abraham Lincoln (18091865)
