Famous quotes containing the words areas and/or rural:

    Helping children at a level of genuine intellectual inquiry takes imagination on the part of the adult. Even more, it takes the courage to become a resource in unfamiliar areas of knowledge and in ones for which one has no taste. But parents, no less than teachers, must respect a child’s mind and not exploit it for their own vanity or ambition, or to soothe their own anxiety.
    Dorothy H. Cohen (20th century)

    No, in your rural letter box

    To tell you it was just a tramp
    Who used your pasture for a camp.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
