Famous quotes containing the words learning, problems, childhood and/or cancer:

    With just enough of learning to misquote.
    George Gordon Noel Byron (1788–1824)

    I was a wonderful parent before I had children. I was an expert on why everyone else was having problems with theirs. Then I had three of my own.
    Adele Faber (20th century)

    When you have really exhausted an experience you always reverence and love it. The two things that nearly all of us have thoroughly and really been through are childhood and youth. And though we would not have them back again on any account, we feel that they are both beautiful, because we have drunk them dry.
    Gilbert Keith Chesterton (1874–1936)

    Ever since I was a kid my folks fed me bigotry for breakfast and ignorance for supper. Never, not once did they ever make me feel proud of where I was born. That’s it. That was a cancer they put in me. No knowledge of my country. No pride. Just a hymn of hate.
    Samuel Fuller (b. 1911)
