Famous quotes containing the words school and/or high:
“Cinema, radio, television, magazines are a school of inattention: people look without seeing, listen in without hearing.”
—Robert Bresson (b. 1907)
“Brutes are deprived of the high advantages which we have; but they have some which we have not. They have not our hopes, but they are without our fears; they are subject like us to death, but without knowing it; even most of them are more attentive than we to self-preservation, and do not make so bad a use of their passions.”
—Charles Louis de Secondat Montesquieu (16891755)
