Random quote of the day: 

“Young people hate grown-ups for many reasons. One of the reasons is that they feel grown-ups’ minds are fixed and limited. Whenever they meet a man or woman who does not always say what they expect, who tells them novel stories about strange aspects of the world, who throws unexpected lights on what they sadly know as ordinary dull life, who seems as completely alive, sensitive, energetic, and zestful as they themselves, they usually admire him or her.”

—Gilbert Highet, The Art of Teaching

Random quote of the day:

 

“He that hath wife and children hath given hostages to fortune; for they are impediments to great enterprises, either of virtue or mischief. Certainly the best works, and of greatest merit for the public, have proceeded from the unmarried or childless men; which both in affection and means have married and endowed the public. Yet it were great reason that those that have children should have greatest care of future times; unto which they know they must transmit their dearest pledges.”

—Sir Francis Bacon, “Of Marriage and Single Life,” Essays, Civil and Moral, Ch. VIII
