Famous quotes containing the words range and/or middle:

    We must continually remind students in the classroom that expression of different opinions and dissenting ideas affirms the intellectual process. We should forcefully explain that our role is not to teach them to think as we do but rather to teach them, by example, the importance of taking a stance that is rooted in rigorous engagement with the full range of ideas about a topic.
    bell hooks (b. 1955)

    When you’re alone in the middle of the night and you wake in a sweat and a hell of a fright
    When you’re alone in the middle of the bed and you wake like someone hit you in the head
    You’ve had a cream of a nightmare dream and you’ve got the hoo-ha’s coming to you.
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)
