Famous quotes containing the words school, small and/or heath:

    I am both a public and a private school boy myself, having always changed schools just as the class in English in the new school was taking up Silas Marner, with the result that it was the only book in the English language that I knew until I was eighteen—but, boy, did I know Silas Marner!
    Robert Benchley (1889–1945)

    A pedestal is as much a prison as any other small space.
    Anonymous Woman (c. mid–1800s)

    We are the trade union for pensioners and children, the trade union for the disabled and the sick ... the trade union for the nation as a whole.
    —Edward Heath (b. 1916)
