Field Goal Attempts

Famous quotes containing the words field, goal and/or attempts:

    The frequent failure of men to cultivate their capacity for listening has a profound impact on their capacity for parenting, for it is mothers more than fathers who are most likely to still their own voices so they may hear and draw out the voices of their children.
    —Mary Field Belenky (20th century)

    Our goal as a parent is to give life to our children’s learning—to instruct, to teach, to help them develop self-discipline—an ordering of the self from the inside, not imposition from the outside. Any technique that does not give life to a child’s learning and leave a child’s dignity intact cannot be called discipline—it is punishment, no matter what language it is clothed in.
    Barbara Coloroso (20th century)

    Anyone who attempts to relate his life loses himself in the immediate. One can only speak of another.
    Augusto Roa Bastos (b. 1917)
