Famous quotes containing the word skip:

    We are playing with fire when we skip the years of three, four, and five to hurry children into being age six.... Every child has a right to his fifth year of life, his fourth year, his third year. He has a right to live each year with joy and self-fulfillment. No one should ever claim the power to make a child mortgage his today for the sake of tomorrow.
    James L. Hymes, Jr. (20th century)

    Grown up, and that is a terribly hard thing to do. It is much easier to skip it and go from one childhood to another.
    F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896–1940)

    The lesson of value which money teaches, which the Author of the Universe has taken so much pains to teach us, we are inclined to skip altogether. As for the means of living, it is wonderful how indifferent men of all classes are about it, even reformers, so called,—whether they inherit, or earn, or steal it.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
