Anne Fadiman
“My daughter is seven, and some of the other second-grade parents complain that their children don't read for pleasure. When I visit their homes, the children's rooms are crammed with expensive books, but the parent's rooms are empty. Those children do not see their parents reading, as I did every day of my childhood. By contrast, when I walk into an apartment with books on the shelves, books on the bedside tables, books on the floor, and books on the toilet tank, then I know what I would see if I opened the door that says 'PRIVATE--GROWNUPS KEEP OUT': a child sprawled on the bed, reading.”
Anne Fadiman, Ex Libris: Confessions of a Common Reader

Arundhati Roy
“That's what careless words do. They make people love you a little less.”
Arundhati Roy, The God of Small Things

Ralph Waldo Emerson
“For every minute you are angry you lose sixty seconds of happiness.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Haim G. Ginott
“While parents possess the original key to their offspring's experience, teachers have a spare key. They, too, can open or close the minds and hearts of children.”
Haim Ginott

“As a teenager you are at the last stage in your life when you will be happy to hear that the phone is for you.”
