Famous quotes containing the words adult life, life, influence and/or adult:

    For most of my adult life, I have been an emotional hit-and- run driver—that is, a reporter. I made people like me, trust me, open their hearts and their minds to me, and cry and bleed on to the pages of my neat little notebooks, and then I went back to a safe place and made a story out of it.
    Anna Quindlen (b. 1952)

    Thou gav’st me life, but mortal; for that one
    Favour I’ll make full satisfaction:
    For my life mortal, rise from out thy hearse,
    And take a life immortal from my verse.
    Robert Herrick (1591–1674)

    Nature has taken more care than the fondest parent for the education and refinement of her children. Consider the silent influence which flowers exert, no less upon the ditcher in the meadow than the lady in the bower. When I walk in the woods, I am reminded that a wise purveyor has been there before me; my most delicate experience is typified there.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    We are all adult learners. Most of us have learned a good deal more out of school than in it. We have learned from our families, our work, our friends. We have learned from problems resolved and tasks achieved but also from mistakes confronted and illusions unmasked. . . . Some of what we have learned is trivial: some has changed our lives forever.
    Laurent A. Daloz (20th century)
