    Someday soon, we hope that all middle and high school will have required courses in child rearing for girls and boys to help prepare them for one of the most important and rewarding tasks of their adulthood: being a parent.

    Marshall McLuhan (1911–1980)

    And not in paths of high morality,
    And not among the half-distinguished faces,
    The clouded forms of long-past history.
    Emily Brontë (1818–1848)

    A new idea is rarely born like Venus attended by graces
    More commonly it’s modeled of baling wire and acne.
    More commonly it wheezes and tips over.
    Marge Piercy (b. 1936)

    There are no grades of vanity, there are only grades of ability in concealing it.
