Play Stopped

Famous quotes containing the words play and/or stopped:

    They should not play life, or study it merely, while the community supports them at this expensive game, but earnestly live it from beginning to end. How could youths better learn to live than by at once trying the experiment of living? Methinks this would exercise their minds as much as mathematics.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    We all know children who grew up in authoritarian families and have never stopped rebelling against restrictiveness wherever they find it. And they seem to be more prone than others to find it!
    Neil Kurshan (20th century)
