    Do your children view themselves as successes or failures? Are they being encouraged to be inquisitive or passive? Are they afraid to challenge authority and to question assumptions? Do they feel comfortable adapting to change? Are they easily discouraged if they cannot arrive at a solution to a problem? The answers to those questions will give you a better appraisal of their education than any list of courses, grades, or test scores.
    Lawrence Kutner (20th century)

    I made a list of things I have
    to remember and a list
    of things I want to forget,
    but I see they are the same list.
    Linda Pastan (b. 1932)

    Fishes in the flood,

    Much sorrow I walk with
    For best of bone and blood.
    —Unknown. Fowls in the Frith. . .

    So what if people say terrible things? Whatever they call me, I say, “Yes, and my name is Mary.” I refuse to be afraid. And I do this out of an obligation not to the community but to myself. Nobody should have a say in who I am.
    Mary Hansen (b. c. 1975)
