Famous quotes containing the words goal and/or field:

    It will help us and our children if we can laugh at our faults. It will help us tolerate our shortcomings, and it will help our children see that the goal is to be a human, not perfect.
    Neil Kurshan (20th century)

    —Mary Field Belenky (20th century)
