Famous quotes containing the words function and/or form:

    No one, however powerful and successful, can function as an adult if his parents are not satisfied with him.
    Frank Pittman (20th century)

    Now, what I want is, Facts. Teach these boys and girls nothing but Facts. Facts alone are wanted in life. Plant nothing else, and root out everything else. You can only form the minds of reasoning animals upon Facts: nothing else will ever be of any service to them. This is the principle on which I bring up my own children, and this is the principle on which I bring up these children. Stick to Facts, sir!
    Charles Dickens (1812–1870)
