Famous quotes containing the words family and/or education:

    I think the ideal situation for a family is to be completely incestuous.
    William Burroughs (b. 1914)

    Man is endogenous, and education is his unfolding. The aid we have from others is mechanical, compared with the discoveries of nature in us. What is thus learned is delightful in the doing, and the effect remains.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
