...[T]ry not to be too angry or disappointed with your fellow Americans.

Each minute bursts in the burning room,The great globe reels in the solar fire,Spinning the trivial and unique away.(How all things flash! How all things flare!)What am I now that I was then?May memory restore again and againThe smallest color of the smallest day:Time is the school in which we learn,Time is the fire in which we burn.delmore schwartz

It is a standing insult tosportsmen to have to play undera rule which assumes that players intend to trip, hack and push their opponents, and to behave like cads of the most unscrupulous kidney. The lines marking a penalty area are a disgrace to the playing fields of a public school.C(harles) B(urgess) Fry

I cannot recall a period when I did not draw; and at school, the studies that were distasteful to me, mathematics and grammar , were retarded by the indulgence of teachers who were proud of my drawing faculties, and passed over my neglect of uncongenial subjects.Jacob Epstein in: Milton Hindus The Jewish East Side: 1881 – 1924, Transaction Publishers, p.6
