Who is c. john sommerville?

Famous quotes containing the words sommerville and/or john:

    Parents are used to being made to feel guilty about...their contribution to the population problem, the school tax burden, and declining test scores. They expect to be blamed by teachers and psychologists, if not by police. And they will be blamed by the children themselves. It is hardy a wonder, then, that they withdraw into what used to be called “permissiveness” but is really neglect.
    —C. John Sommerville (20th century)

    Thou hast brought him a pardon from good King John.”
    —Unknown. King John and the Abbot of Canterbury (l. 108)
