Famous quotes containing the words lectures, public, selected, conference and/or papers:

    Behold, I do not give lectures or a little charity,
    When I give I give myself.
    Walt Whitman (1819–1892)

    The study of tools as well as of books should have a place in the public schools. Tools, machinery, and the implements of the farm should be made familiar to every boy, and suitable industrial education should be furnished for every girl.
    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)

    The final flat of the hoe’s approval stamp
    Is reserved for the bed of a few selected seed.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    For 350 years we have been taught that reading maketh a full man, conference a ready man and writing an exact man. Football’s place is to add a patina of character, a deference to the rules and a respect for authority.
    Walter Wellesley (Red)

    “The papers are delivered every day;
    I am alone and never shed a tear.”
    Stanley Jasspon Kunitz (b. 1905)
