Famous quotes containing the words tools and/or devices:

    A life I didn’t choose
    chose me: even
    my tools are the wrong ones
    for what I have to do.
    Adrienne Rich (b. 1929)

    The relationship between mother and professional has not been a partnership in which both work together on behalf of the child, in which the expert helps the mother achieve her own goals for her child. Instead, professionals often behave as if they alone are advocates for the child; as if they are the guardians of the child’s needs; as if the mother left to her own devices will surely damage the child and only the professional can rescue him.
    Elaine Heffner (20th century)
