Famous quotes containing the words term and/or prison:

    The term preschooler signals another change in our expectations of children. While toddler refers to physical development, preschooler refers to a social and intellectual activity: going to school. That shift in emphasis is tremendously important, for it is at this age that we think of children as social creatures who can begin to solve problems.
    Lawrence Kutner (20th century)

    But neither milk-white rose nor red
    May bloom in prison air;
    The shard, the pebble, and the flint,

    For flowers have been known to heal
    A common man’s despair.
    Oscar Wilde (1854–1900)
