I had great teachers at school who taught me to use all my body to paint, to draw - you can draw with your hand, you can draw with a spatula.
I never had to learn English, French and German because I was brought up as all three languages. I had a private French teacher before I even went to school. That helped a lot.
When I was in junior high school, the teachers voted me the student most likely to end up in the electric chair.
I had a heartbreaking experience when I was 9. I always wanted to be a guard. The most wonderful girl in the world was a guard. When I got polio and then went back to school, they made me a guard. A teacher took away my guard button.
In this outward and physical ceremony we attest once again to the inner and spiritual strength of our Nation. As my high school teacher, Miss Julia Coleman, used to say: 'We must adjust to changing times and still hold to unchanging principles.'
In America the schools have become too permissive, the kids now are controlling the schools, the tail is wagging the dog. We've got to make a change there and get it back to where the teachers have control of the classrooms.
Some of my classes in high school were pretty interesting and I benefited from having several very intelligent and inspiring teachers.
I had a terrible education. I attended a school for emotionally disturbed teachers.
My father actually moved out from Chicago just so he could play tennis 365 days a year, so it was - it was a place we played every day. We played before school. We played after school. We woke up. We played tennis. We brushed our teeth in that order.
In Kansas I have a chess school.
I remember teachers who really singled me out for their discouragement.
My primary and secondary education was provided by the Highland Park Public School System.
They don't ask much of you. They only want you to hate the things you love and to love the things you despise.
I know that I shall meet my fate somewhere among the clouds above; those that I fight I do not hate, those that I guard I do not love.
Success makes so many people hate you. I wish it wasn't that way. It would be wonderful to enjoy success without seeing envy in the eyes of those around you.
I had the training at drama school where I studied Shakespeare and Brecht and Chekov and all these period historical playwrights and I think that I responded to the material.
I don't love studying. I hate studying. I like learning. Learning is beautiful.
We spend our time searching for security and hate it when we get it.
Beauty and fullness of tone can be achieved by having the whole orchestra play with high clarinets and a carefully selected number of piccolos.
Why are our days numbered and not, say, lettered?
We must admit with humility that, while number is purely a product of our minds, space has a reality outside our minds, so that we cannot completely prescribe its properties a priori.
Love or hatred must constantly increase between two persons who are always together; every moment fresh reasons are found for loving or hating better.
We find them smaller and fainter, in constantly increasing numbers, and we know that we are reaching into space, farther and farther, until, with the faintest nebulae that can be detected with the greatest telescopes, we arrive at the frontier of the known universe.
To make oneself hated is more difficult than to make oneself loved.
My mother never gave up one me. I messed up in school so much they were sending me home, but my mother sent me right back.
