Quotes - Apr, 2000 Issue 

What is morality in any given time or place? It is what the majority then and there happen to like -- and immorality is what they dislike.
- Alfred North Whitehead
What is commonly called "education,"...is but the acquisition of the means by which to educate oneself.
- Albert Pike
A life of reaction is a life of slavery, spiritually and intellectually. One must fight for a life of action, not reaction.
- Rita Mae Brown
The media forms our new community... We "know" celebrities but they don't know us. The new community is not a reciprocal neighborhood like earlier ones...  These vicarious relationships crate a new kind of loneliness -- the loneliness of people whose relationships are with personae instead of persons.
- Mary Pipher, The Shelter of Each Other
You are young as your faith, as old as your doubt, as young as your self-confidence, as old as your fear, as young as your hopes, and as old as your despair.
- Harriet Beecher Stowe
The reputation of a thousand years may be determined by the conduct of one hour.
- Japanese proverb
"Recent research indicates that as schools become more militarized they become less safe, in large part cause the first casualty is the central, critical relationship between teacher and student, a relationship that is now being damaged or broken in favor of tough sounding, impersonal, uniform procedures."

- William Ayers, Distinguished Professor Of Education and Senior University Scholar at the University of Illinois at Chicago

If you purify the pond, the lilies die
- William Stafford
The notion at the heart of much of American psychology today -- that a kid is the result of something, his upbringing, his genetics --is barely talked about, primarily because it paints the kids as victims right from the start. Far more common is to try to see dysfunction in terms of specialness, as a unique path or calling -- a sign of something new struggling to emerge.
- Gary Ferguson, In the Wilderness, 1999
