    There never was and is not likely soon to be a nation of philosophers, nor am I certain it is desirable that there should be.
    —Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Much of the pressure contemporary parents feel with respect to dressing children in designer clothes, teaching young children academics, and giving them instruction in sports derives directly from our need to use our children to impress others with our economic surplus. We find “good” rather than real reasons for letting our children go along with the crowd.
    —David Elkind (20th century)
