    Although good early childhood programs can benefit all children, they are not a quick fix for all of society’s ills—from crime in the streets to adolescent pregnancy, from school failure to unemployment.

    Barbara Bowman (20th century)

    Edith: Does anybody want me to flatter and be untruthful? Hotchkiss: Well, since you ask me, I do. Surely it’s the very first qualification for tolerable social intercourse.
    George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950)
