"I didn’t call myself anything. I was more than a teacher. And less. In the high school classroom you are a drill sergeant, a rabbi, a shoulder to cry on, a disciplinarian, a singer, a low level scholar, a clerk, a referee, a clown, a counselor, a dress-code enforcer, a conductor, an apologist, a philosopher, a collaborator, a tap dancer, a traffic cop, a priest, a mother-father-brother-sister-uncle-aunt, a bookkeeper, a critic, a psychologist, the last straw."- Frank McCourt

"Only the educated are free."

Epictetus, Discourses
Roman (Greek-born) slave & Stoic philosopher (55 AD - 135 AD)


Training is everything. The peach was once a bitter almond; cauliflower is nothing but cabbage with a college education. Mark Twain, Pudd'nhead Wilson (1894)
US humorist, novelist, short story author, & wit (1835 - 1910)
