Famous quotes containing the words high school, school, high and/or archbishop:

    When I was in high school I thought a vocation was a particular calling. Here’s a voice: “Come, follow me.” My idea of a calling now is not: “Come.” It’s like what I’m doing right now, not what I’m going to be. Life is a calling.
    Rebecca Sweeney (b. 1938)

    For millions of men and women, the church has been the hospital for the soul, the school for the mind and the safe depository for moral ideas.
    Gerald R. Ford (b. 1913)

    But look, the morn in russet mantle clad
    Walks o’er the dew of yon high eastward hill.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    The archbishop is away. The church is gray.
    He has left his robes folded in camphor
    And, dressed in black, he walks
    Among fireflies.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)
