When Your Home Schooler Hits College Age

Famous quotes containing the words age, college, home and/or hits:

    The age we live in is a busy age; in which knowledge is rapidly advancing towards perfection.
    Jeremy Bentham (1748–1832)

    ... when you make it a moral necessity for the young to dabble in all the subjects that the books on the top shelf are written about, you kill two very large birds with one stone: you satisfy precious curiosities, and you make them believe that they know as much about life as people who really know something. If college boys are solemnly advised to listen to lectures on prostitution, they will listen; and who is to blame if some time, in a less moral moment, they profit by their information?
    Katharine Fullerton Gerould (1879–1944)

    ... married women work and neglect their children because the duties of the homemaker become so depreciated that women feel compelled to take a job in order to hold the respect of the community. It is one thing if women work, as many of them must, to help support the family. It is quite another thing—it is destructive of woman’s freedom—if society forces her out of the home and into the labor market in order that she may respect herself and gain the respect of others.
    Agnes E. Meyer (1887–1970)

    Life begins to happen.
    My hoppped up husband drops his home disputes,
    and hits the streets to cruise for prostitutes,
    Robert Lowell (1917–1977)
