Famous quotes containing the words school, library and/or journal:
“By school age, many boys experience pressure to reveal inner feelings as humiliating. They think their mothers are saying to them, You must be hiding something shameful. And shucking clams is a snap compared to prying secrets out of a boy whos decided to clam up.”
—Ron Taffel (20th century)
“Our civilization has decided ... that determining the guilt or innocence of men is a thing too important to be trusted to trained men.... When it wants a library catalogued, or the solar system discovered, or any trifle of that kind, it uses up its specialists. But when it wishes anything done which is really serious, it collects twelve of the ordinary men standing round. The same thing was done, if I remember right, by the Founder of Christianity.”
—Gilbert Keith Chesterton (18741936)
“I think this journal will be disadvantageous for me, for I spend my time now like a spider spinning my own entrails.”
—Mary Bokin Chesnut (18231886)
