Quotes edit

  • Things like washing-up after meals, cleaning the classrooms, working in the gardens, preparing the playing fields have much to teach the somewhat careless, superficial teenager. [citation needed]
  • Yes, we must endeavour to be global citizens, learning from each other - learning from the variety of solutions which have been arrived at for what could have been essentially the same problem - but we must retain our individuality, our culture, our beliefs - those things which make us different, those things that make us what we are.
