    Pat Conroy
    “The world of literature has everything in it, and it refuses to leave
    anything out. I have read like a man on fire my whole life because the
    genius of English teachers touched me with the dazzling beauty of language.
    Because of them I rode with Don Quixote and danced with Anna Karenina at a
    ball in St. Petersburg and lassoed a steer in "Lonesome Dove" and had
    nightmares about slavery in "Beloved" and walked the streets of Dublin in
    "Ulysses" and made up a hundred stories in the Arabian nights and saw my
    mother killed by a baseball in "A Prayer for Owen Meany." I've been in ten
    thousand cities and have introduced myself to a hundred thousand strangers
    in my exuberant reading career, all because I listened to my fabulous
    English teachers and soaked up every single thing those magnificent men and
    women had to give. I cherish and praise them and thank them for finding me
    when I was a boy and presenting me with the precious gift of the English
    language. ”

    “Our youth now love luxury. They have bad manners, contempt for authority; they show disrespect for their elders and love chatter in place of exercise; they no longer rise when elders enter the room; they contradict their parents, chatter before company; gobble up their food and tyrannize their teachers.”

    Robert Frost
    “There are two kinds of teachers: the kind that fill you with so much quail shot that you can't move, and the kind that just gives you a little prod behind and you jump to the skies.”

    “Whoever had decided that school should start so early in the morning and last all day long needed to be hunted down and forced to watch hours of educational televison without the aid of caffine.”
