Put kids in a class and they will live out their lives in an invisible cage, isolated from their chance at community; interrupt kids with bells and horns all the time and they will learn that nothing is important or worth finishing; ridicule them and they will retreat from human association; shame them and they will find a hundred ways to get even. The habits taught in large-scale organizations are deadly.

— John Taylor Gatto

He walks around like there's loose boards in the floor, and you know who laid that floor, I did.

— Marsha Norman

The problem with being grounded is it gives you a whole lot of unavoidable time to think.

They are obsessed with not losing money.

— Tony Robbins
