Famous quotes containing the words early, life and/or education:

    He had long before indulged most unfavourable sentiments of our fellow-subjects in America. For, as early as 1769,... he had said of them, “Sir, they are a race of convicts, and ought to be thankful for any thing we allow them short of hanging.”
    Samuel Johnson (1709–1784)

    The minutes wing’d their way wi’ pleasure:
    Kings may be blest, but Tam was glorious,
    O’er a’ the ills o’ life victorious!
    Robert Burns (1759–1796)

    The Supreme Court would have pleased me more if they had concerned themselves about enforcing the compulsory education provisions for Negroes in the South as is done for white children. The next ten years would be better spent in appointing truant officers and looking after conditions in the homes from which the children come. Use to the limit what we already have.
    Zora Neale Hurston (1891–1960)
