Civil Guard Instruction

Famous quotes containing the words civil, guard and/or instruction:

    The United States is just now the oldest country in the world, there always is an oldest country and she is it, it is she who is the mother of the twentieth century civilization. She began to feel herself as it just after the Civil War. And so it is a country the right age to have been born in and the wrong age to live in.
    Gertrude Stein (1874–1946)

    We must be cruel as well as compassionate: let us guard against becoming poorer than nature is!
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    Much of the pressure contemporary parents feel with respect to dressing children in designer clothes, teaching young children academics, and giving them instruction in sports derives directly from our need to use our children to impress others with our economic surplus. We find “good” rather than real reasons for letting our children go along with the crowd.
    David Elkind (20th century)
