Famous quotes containing the words high and/or school:
“We want our children to become warm, decent human beings who reach out generously to those in need. We hope they find values and ideals to give their lives purpose so they contribute to the world and make it a better place because they have lived in it. Intelligence, success, and high achievement are worthy goals, but they mean nothing if our children are not basically kind and loving people.”
—Neil Kurshan (20th century)
“Cinema, radio, television, magazines are a school of inattention: people look without seeing, listen in without hearing.”
—Robert Bresson (b. 1907)
