Tips For Getting Better Grades in High School

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

    There is nothing intrinsically better about a child who happily bounces off to school the first day and a child who is wary, watchful, and takes a longer time to separate from his parents and join the group. Neither one nor the other is smarter, better adjusted, or destined for a better life.
    Ellen Galinsky (20th century)

    The high that proved too high, the heroic for earth too hard,
    The passion that left the ground to lose itself in the sky,
    Are music sent up to God by the lover and the bard;
    Enough that he heard it once; we shall hear it by and by.
    Robert Browning (1812–1889)

    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)

    Kindliness seems to exist primarily as an animal instinct, so deeply rooted that mental degeneracy, which works from the top down, does not destroy it until the mind sinks to the lower grades of idiocy.
    Charles Horton Cooley (1864–1929)
