Famous quotes containing the words roles and, cast, roles and/or original:

    Productive collaborations between family and school, therefore, will demand that parents and teachers recognize the critical importance of each other’s participation in the life of the child. This mutuality of knowledge, understanding, and empathy comes not only with a recognition of the child as the central purpose for the collaboration but also with a recognition of the need to maintain roles and relationships with children that are comprehensive, dynamic, and differentiated.
    Sara Lawrence Lightfoot (20th century)

    Who first seduc’d them to that fowl revolt?
    Th’ infernal Serpent; he it was, whose guile
    Stird up with Envy and Revenge, deceiv’d
    The Mother of Mankinde, what time his Pride
    Had cast him out from Heav’n, with all his Host
    Of Rebel Angels,
    John Milton (1608–1674)

    Sara Lawrence Lightfoot (20th century)

    What is most original in a man’s nature is often that which is most desperate. Thus new systems are forced on the world by men who simply cannot bear the pain of living with what is. Creators care nothing for their systems except that they be unique. If Hitler had been born in Nazi Germany he wouldn’t have been content to enjoy the atmosphere.
    Leonard Cohen (b. 1934)
