You send a boy to school in order to make friends of the right sort.
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.
It is often necessary to know how to obey a woman in order sometimes to have the right to command her.
The Athenians are right to accept advice from anyone, since it is incumbent on everyone to share in that sort of excellence, or else there can be no city at all.
If I didn't swim my best, I'd think about it at school, at dinner, with my friends. It would drive me crazy.
Of course you will insist on modesty in the children, and respect to their teachers, but if the boy stops you in your speech, cries out that you are wrong and sets you right, hug him!
I prefer ordinary girls - you know, college students, waitresses, that sort of thing. Most of the girls I go out with are just good friends. Just because I go out to the cinema with a girl, it doesn't mean we are dating.
That said, my kids are at home right now with my husband and I'm missing something important at my daughter's school which makes me feel sick inside. It's a lot of balance and a lot of really hard decision making.
A man's moral conscience is the curse he had to accept from the gods in order to gain from them the right to dream.
I missed my home - like the physicality of my home, I missed my friends and my family mostly and just hanging out and being in your home country - culturally it feels right and that is what I miss.
In order to acquire a growing and lasting respect in society, it is a good thing, if you possess great talent, to give, early in your youth, a very hard kick to the right shin of the society that you love. After that, be a snob.
Not only do I have to live, right, I have to get some cash for my troubles - it's a scary thing, and people need to start to think about the messages that they send in the movies.

This is a free country. Folks have a right to send me letters, and I have a right not to read them.
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.
I pay the schoolmaster, but 'tis the school boys that educate my son.
Often, I went in love with some friends in school. And, no, I suffered. Only later, things went better.
Let the tutor not merely require a verbal account of what the boy has been taught but the meaning and the substance of it:let him judge how the child has profited from it not from the evidence of his memory but from that of his life. Let him take what the boy has just learned and make him show him dozens of different aspects of it andthen apply it to just as many different subjects, in order to find out whether he has really grasped it and make it part of himself,judging the boy's progress by what Plato taught about education. Spewing up food exactly as you have swallowed it is evidence of a failureto digest and assimilate it; the stomach has not done its job if, during concoction, it fails to change the substance and the form of what it is given.
No man who is not willing to help himself has any right to apply to his friends, or to the gods.
I was the only white kid in my neighborhood for most of my youth even in high school, so reverse racism was just as apparent as racism.
I took three years off. I differentiated myself from the industry. Found my identity - sort of... I haven't graduated yet. I'm not legitimately educated yet, but maybe one day.

When I eat with my friends, it is a moment of real pleasure, when I really enjoy my life.
I'm waiting to have a big castle or country home to put all of my collection in. I have an attic full of stuff in my friend's house in Virginia.
