Once upon a time,
there was a boy who flew.”
Chris Colfer, Struck By Lightning: The Carson Phillips Journal
“What grinds me the most is we're sending kids out into the world who don't know how to balance a checkbook, don't know how to apply for a loan, don't even know how to properly fill out a job application, but because they know the quadratic formula we consider them prepared for the world`
With that said, I'll admit even I can see how looking at the equation x -3 = 19 and knowing x =22 can be useful. I'll even say knowing x =7 and y= 8 in a problem like 9x - 6y= 15 can be helpful. But seriously, do we all need to know how to simplify (x-3)(x-3i)??
And the joke is, no one can continue their education unless they do. A student living in California cannot get into a four-year college unless they pass Algebra 2 in high school. A future psychologist can't become a psychologist, a future lawyer can't become a lawyer, and I can't become a journalist unless each of us has a basic understanding of engineering.
Of course, engineers and scientists use this shit all the time, and I applaud them! But they don't take years of theater arts appreciation courses, because a scientist or an engineer doesn't need to know that 'The Phantom of the Opoera' was the longest-running Broadway musical of all time.
Get my point?”
Chris Colfer, Struck By Lightning: The Carson Phillips Journal

Chris Colfer
“There's no solution to life, there's going to be problems no matter what.”
Chris Colfer
“Once upon a time' These are the most magical words our world has ever known and the gateway to the greatest stories ever told. They're an immediate calling to anyone who hears them-a calling into a world where everyone is welcome and anything can happen. Mice can become men, maids can become princesses, and they can teach valuable lessons in the process.”
Chris Colfer, The Wishing Spell
“I don’t think I have the right parts to appreciate '50 Shades of Grey'.”
Chris Colfer
“You're sad-looking," she said. "My grandson used to be such a happy boy. He used to write me stories. I remember the first story he ever wrote me, 'Once upon a time, there was a boy.' And that became 'Once upon a time there was a boy who wanted to fly.' And they kept getting better and better over time. I never found out if the boy got to fly."

I gave her a small smile. If only she knew the boy's wings had been clipped.”
Chris Colfer, Struck By Lightning: The Carson Phillips Journal
“When one thing takes another away, what do we call that?” she asked my class. “Homicide!” I called out”
