“I came to realize that life lived to help others is the only one that matters and that it sis my duty ... This is my highest and best use as a human.”
Ben Stein

“The first step to getting the things you want out of life is this: Decide what you want. ”
Ben Stein

“Screaming at children over their grades, especially to the point of the child's tears, is child abuse, pure and simple. It's not funny and it's not good parenting. It is a crushing, scarring, disastrous experience for the child. It isn't the least bit funny.”
Ben Stein
