Famous quotes containing the words high school, school, high, whitman and/or middle:

    When I was in high school I thought a vocation was a particular calling. Here’s a voice: “Come, follow me.” My idea of a calling now is not: “Come.” It’s like what I’m doing right now, not what I’m going to be. Life is a calling.
    Rebecca Sweeney (b. 1938)

    Love goes toward love as schoolboys from their books,
    But love from love, toward school with heavy looks.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Who is the happy Warrior? Who is he
    That every man in arms should wish to be?
    It is the generous spirit, who, when brought
    Among the tasks of real life, hath wrought
    Upon the plan that pleased his boyish thought:
    Whose high endeavors are an inward light
    That makes the path before him always bright:
    Who, with a natural instinct to discern
    What knowledge can perform, is diligent to learn;
    And in himself posses his own desire;
    William Wordsworth (1770–1850)

    On a flat road runs the well-trained runner,
    He is lean and sinewy with muscular legs,
    He is thinly clothed, he leans forward as he runs,
    With lightly closed fists and arms partially raised.
    —Walt Whitman (1819–1892)

    For hours, in fall days, I watched the ducks cunningly tack and veer and hold the middle of the pond, far from the sportsman;... but what beside safety they got by sailing in the middle of Walden I do not know, unless they love its water for the same reason that I do.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
