When Children are Paintbrushes

“I have come to believe that a great teacher is a great artist and that there are as few as there are any other great artists. Teaching might even be the greatest of the arts since the medium is the human mind and spirit.”

Change Thyself

“We are taught you must blame your father, your sisters, your brothers, the school, the teachers–but never blame yourself. It’s never your fault. But it’s always your fault, because if you wanted to change you’re the one who has got to change.”

~~Katherine Hepburn
