Average Age

Famous quotes containing the words average and/or age:

    You preferred it to the usual thing:
    One dull man, dulling and uxorious,
    One average mind—with one thought less, each year.
    Ezra Pound (1885–1972)

    Everyone in our culture wants to win a prize. Perhaps that is the grand lesson we have taken with us from kindergarten in the age of perversions of Dewey-style education: everyone gets a ribbon, and praise becomes a meaningless narcotic to soothe egoistic distemper.
    Gerald Early (b. 1952)
