Famous quotes containing the words school and/or bishop:

    A man of sense and energy, the late head of the Farm School in Boston Harbor, said to me, “I want none of your good boys,Mgive me the bad ones.” And this is the reason, I suppose, why, as soon as the children are good, the mothers are scared, and think they are going to die.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    The waiting room
    was full of grown-up people,
    arctics and overcoats,
    lamps and magazines.
    —Elizabeth Bishop (1911–1979)
