Speech Errors

Famous quotes containing the words speech and/or errors:

    A society in which adults are estranged from the world of children, and often from their own childhood, tends to hear children’s speech only as a foreign language, or as a lie.... Children have been treated ... as congenital fibbers, fakers and fantasisers.
    Beatrix Campbell (b. 1947)

    Of all the errors which can possibly be committed to the education of youth, that of sending them to Europe is the most fatal. I see [clearly] that no American should come to Europe under 30 years of age.
    Thomas Jefferson (1743–1826)
