Famous quotes containing the words school and/or bishop:

    Dad, if you really want to know what happened in school, then you’ve got to know exactly who’s in the class, who rides the bus, what project they’re working on in science, and how your child felt that morning.... Without these facts at your fingertips, all you can really think to say is “So how was school today?” And you’ve got to be prepared for the inevitable answer—”Fine.” Which will probably leave you wishing that you’d never asked.
    Ron Taffel (20th century)

    The millions of grains are black, white, tan, and gray,
    and mixed with quartz grains, rose and amethyst.
    —Elizabeth Bishop (1911–1979)
