Famous quotes containing the words school, high and/or valley:
“Dad, if you really want to know what happened in school, then youve got to know exactly whos in the class, who rides the bus, what project theyre working on in science, and how your child felt that morning.... Without these facts at your fingertips, all you can really think to say is So how was school today? And youve got to be prepared for the inevitable answerFine. Which will probably leave you wishing that youd never asked.”
—Ron Taffel (20th century)
“Leadership does not always wear the harness of compromise. Once and again one of those great influences which we call a Cause arises in the midst of a nation. Men of strenuous minds and high ideals come forward.... The attacks they sustain are more cruel than the collision of arms.... Friends desert and despise them.... They stand alone and oftentimes are made bitter by their isolation.... They are doing nothing less than defy public opinion, and shall they convert it by blows. Yes.”
—Woodrow Wilson (18561924)
“As I went forth early on a still and frosty morning, the trees looked like airy creatures of darkness caught napping; on this side huddled together, with their gray hairs streaming, in a secluded valley which the sun had not penetrated; on that, hurrying off in Indian file along some watercourse, while the shrubs and grasses, like elves and fairies of the night, sought to hide their diminished heads in the snow.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
