    Children cannot eat rhetoric and they cannot be sheltered by commissions. I don’t want to see another commission that studies the needs of kids. We need to help them.
    —Marian Wright Edelman (20th century)

    The master, the swabber, the boatswain and I,
    The gunner and his mate,
    Loved Mall, Meg, and Marian and Margery,
    But none of us cared for Kate;
    For she had a tongue with a tang,
    Would cry to a sailor, ‘Go hang!’
    She loved not the savour of tar nor of pitch,
    Yet a tailor might scratch her where’er she did itch:
    Then to sea, boys, and let her go hang.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    The present is the ever moving shadow that divides yesterday from tomorrow. In that lies hope.
    —Frank Lloyd Wright (1869–1959)

    He’s indestructible. Frankenstein’s creation is man’s challenge to the laws of life and death.
    Edward T. Lowe, and Erle C. Kenton. Dr. Edelman (Onslow Stevens)
