Quotes - May, 2000 Issue 


Our culture is at war with families. Families in America have been invaded by technology, mock or "kitschiefied" by the media isolated by demographic changes, pounded by economic forces and hurt by their corporate values. They have been frightened by crime in their neighborhoods. Parents worry about their children's physical safety and children are afraid of strangers. When I speak to or smile at children I don't know, I see fear and doubt in their eyes... A culture in which children fear adults and adults are uneasy around children is an unhealthy and dangerous place.
- Mary Pipher
The Shelter Of Each Other
Happiness is like a butterfly. The more you chase it, the more it will elude you. But if you turn your attention to other things, it comes softy and sits on your shoulder.
- UnKnown
We Program computers, but they also program us.
- Clifford Stolle, SILICON SNAKE OIL
If anything, genuine creative though resembles play far more than id does the rule-governed constructions of school mathematics.
- Bruce Goldberg, WHY SCHOOLS FAIL
