Famous quotes containing the words school, secondary, point and/or grey:

    Sure, you can love your child when he or she has just brought home a report card with straight “A’s.” It’s a lot harder, though, to show the same love when teachers call you from school to tell you that your child hasn’t handed in any homework since the beginning of the term.
    —The Lions Clubs International and the Quest Nation. The Surprising Years, II, ch.3 (1985)

    Cloud-clown, blue painter, sun as horn,
    Hill-scholar, man that never is,
    The bad-bespoken lacker,
    Ancestor of Narcissus, prince
    Of the secondary men. There are no rocks
    And stones, only this imager.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    The point of cities is multiplicity of choice.
    Jane Jacobs (b. 1916)

    As our boys and men are all expecting to be Presidents, so our girls and women must all hold themselves in readiness to preside in the White House; and in no city in the world can honest industry be more at a discount than in this capital of the government of the people.
    —Jane Grey Swisshelm (1815–1884)
