Pribadi Bilingual Boarding quotes by Laurence Yep
#1. I was born in San Francisco's Chinatown in 1948 but grew up in a black neighborhood. During elementary and middle school, I commuted to a bilingual school in Chinatown. So I did not confront white American culture until high school. #Quote by Laurence Yep
Pribadi Bilingual Boarding quotes by Walter De La Mare
#2. Lear, Macbeth. Mercutio – they live on their own as it were. The newspapers are full of them, if we were only the Shakespeares to see it. Have you ever been in a Police Court? Have you ever watched tradesmen behind their counters? My soul, the secrets walking in the streets! You jostle them at every corner. There's a Polonius in every first-class railway carriage, and as many Juliets as there are boarding-schools. ... How inexhaustibly rich everything is, if you only stick to life. #Quote by Walter De La Mare
Pribadi Bilingual Boarding quotes by Shaun White
#3. I know my family and I would always go up to the mountains just for fun. We always skied. Then, all of a sudden, my brother started snow boarding. Older brother thing, I had to do what he was doing. So I started snow boarding. #Quote by Shaun White

Pribadi Bilingual Boarding quotes by Lisa Lutz
#6. The latter. She had a good run, Sook said, doing a little shrug. It was his usual response to death at Mapleshade, and it was a safe bet that he felt that way about himself. Like most twice-widowed, Korea-vet, nature-loving, gun-enthusiast, bilingual, weed-connoisseur great grandfathers of five, he'd lived a full life. #Quote by Lisa Lutz
Pribadi Bilingual Boarding quotes by Debasish Mridha
#7. I don't know or understand any other language except the language of kindness. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Pribadi Bilingual Boarding quotes by Louise Erdrich
#8. People didn't want to think about boarding schools--the era of forced assimilation was supposed to be over. But then again, kids from chaotic families didn't get to school, or get sleep, or real food, or homework help. And they'd never get out of the chaos--whatever brand of chaos, from addictions to depression to failing health--unless they got to school. To succeed in school, kids had to attend regularly, eat regularly, sleep regularly, and study regularly. Maybe the boarding schools of the earliest days had stripped away culture from the vulnerable, had left adults with little understanding of how to give love or parent, but what now? Kids needed some intervention, but not the wrenching away of foster families and outside adoptions. #Quote by Louise Erdrich
Pribadi Bilingual Boarding quotes by Zora Neale Hurston
#9. They sat on the boarding house porch and saw the sun plunge into the same crack in the earth from which the night emerged. #Quote by Zora Neale Hurston
Pribadi Bilingual Boarding quotes by Roselyn Sanchez
#10. I came here when I was almost 22. I'm perfectly bilingual, but I'm never going to sound like Sandra Bullock. #Quote by Roselyn Sanchez
Pribadi Bilingual Boarding quotes by Alice Sebold
#11. The dead are never exactly seen by the living, but many people seem acutely aware of something changed around them. They speak of a chill in the air. The mates of the deceased wake from dreams and see a figure standing at the end of thier bed, or in a doorway, or boarding, phantomlike, a city bus. #Quote by Alice Sebold
Pribadi Bilingual Boarding quotes by Brian Regan
#12. So when you do board, the first class people, they're sitting there. A lot of them are working as your boarding. They have computers out and calculators. They're looking up at you like, Hey, we're making money right now! Right now we're making money. #Quote by Brian Regan
Pribadi Bilingual Boarding quotes by Shashi Tharoor
#13. I have been a frequent air traveler since I was a few months shy of my sixth birthday, when my parents packed me off to boarding school two plane rides away from home. Those days of being willingly handed from air hostess to air hostess as an 'unaccompanied minor' made me blase about the rigors of air travel. #Quote by Shashi Tharoor
Pribadi Bilingual Boarding quotes by Richard Lamm
#14. History shows, in my opinion, that no nation can survive the tension, conflict and antagonism of two competing languages and cultures. It is a blessing for an individual to be bilingual; it is a curse for a society to be bilingual. #Quote by Richard Lamm
Pribadi Bilingual Boarding quotes by Graham Fraser
#15. For years, "Sorry, I don't speak French" has been the reflexive response of English-speaking Canadians to a request, a comment, or a greeting in the other official language. Part apology, part defiance, it is a declaration of the otherness. That is not me. I don't do that. The language barrier is her, at this counter, now. #Quote by Graham Fraser
Pribadi Bilingual Boarding quotes by Lorene Cary
#16. How come you got to start making the bed the minute your feet hit the floor? You need to lighten up, girl. Live a little!' Then she'd laugh, delighted with herself and at my inability to be angry with her. #Quote by Lorene Cary
Pribadi Bilingual Boarding quotes by Mark Shields

Pribadi Bilingual Boarding quotes by Antonio Iturbe
#19. Starting a book is like boarding a train to go on holiday. #Quote by Antonio Iturbe
Pribadi Bilingual Boarding quotes by Jared Taylor
#20. [L]et us imagine a mirror image of what is happening today. What if millions of white Americans were pouring across the border into Mexico, taking over parts of cities, speaking English rather than Spanish, celebrating the Fourth of July rather than Cinco de Mayo, sleeping 20 to a house, demanding bilingual instruction and welfare for immigrants, opposing border control, and demanding ballots in English? What if, besides this, they had high rates of crime, poverty, and illegitimacy? Can we imagine the Mexicans rejoicing in their newfound diversity?
And yet, that is what Americans are asked to do. For whites to celebrate diversity is to celebrate their own declining numbers and influence, and the transformation of their society. For every other group, to celebrate diversity is to celebrate increasing numbers and influence. Which is a real celebration and which is self-deception?
Whites - but only whites - must never take pride in their own people. Only whites must pretend they do not prefer to associate with people like themselves. Only whites must pretend to be happy to give up their neighborhoods, their institutions, and their country to people unlike themselves. Only whites must always act as individuals and never as members of a group that promotes shared interests.
Racial identity comes naturally to all non-white groups. It comes naturally because it is good, normal, and healthy to feel kinship for people like oneself. Despite the fashionable view that race #Quote by Jared Taylor
Pribadi Bilingual Boarding quotes by Damian Loeb
#21. When I'm not painting, I'm Oujia-boarding with my photos. I'll sort through my pictures, put them in different folders, and come back months later to one in particular and try to figure out why I took it. #Quote by Damian Loeb
Pribadi Bilingual Boarding quotes by Edward Carey
#22. I had a very happy childhood. But I was sent off to boarding school at quite a young age, this massive Victorian house that was suffocated in ivy. I think there is a part of that school in 'Heap House.' #Quote by Edward Carey
Pribadi Bilingual Boarding quotes by Jamie Campbell Bower
#23. I went to boarding school in the country, so there's no real differentiation between family and friends. I went there from when I was 8 until I was 17 - it was insane. If you earn my friendship, you are my family, and I'll do anything for you. #Quote by Jamie Campbell Bower
Pribadi Bilingual Boarding quotes by George Tahdooahnippah
#24. Before me, my grandfathers, my uncles and my father were all boxers because Native Americans had to box in boarding schools. But in my time, when I grew up in Lawton Oklahoma, we didn't have boxing. I was a wrestler. #Quote by George Tahdooahnippah
Pribadi Bilingual Boarding quotes by J.M. Darhower
#25. Dr. DeMarco nodded, motioning toward Carmine. "I'm thankful for the Mazda - damn thankful you didn't return it scratched," he said, glaring at his father. "I'm thankful to be out of that ridiculous boarding school. Thankful for music and my gun ... I fucking love my gun." Haven looked at him with surprise as Dr. DeMarco laughed. "It's a nice gun. I checked it out. A 1911 .45 ACP. Where'd you get it?"
Carmine shrugged. "Maybe I don't recall." "Fair enough," Dr. DeMarco said. "Are you done?" "Uh, I'm thankful for you all, even if you get on my nerves sometimes," Carmine said. "Oh, and orgasms ... definitely thankful for those." "That's enough," Dr. DeMarco said, shaking his head as he turned to her. "What are you thankful for, child?" She hesitated, her nerves running amuck. "Having food to eat. A bed to sleep in, too. #Quote by J.M. Darhower
Pribadi Bilingual Boarding quotes by Sandra Cisneros
#26. If educators were really understanding of that, they'd say, "You know what? Forget about bilingual, we're going to do multilingual education." So children are ready for the new millennium. We're way behind compared to countries in Europe. If we were multilingual, imagine how much you would learn about your own culture, about the sensibilities of what's important in your own culture. #Quote by Sandra Cisneros
Pribadi Bilingual Boarding quotes by Fleur Jaeggy
#27. Inside, a mother superior, ethereal, delicate, who took me under her wing. She caressed me with her slender, soft hands, she sat next to me as if I were a friend. One day she disappeared. In her place arrived a buxom Swiss from Canton Uri. It's common knowledge that a new leader will hate the predecessors' favourites. A boarding school is like a harem. #Quote by Fleur Jaeggy
Pribadi Bilingual Boarding quotes by Jon Doust
#28. The novel is apparently autobiographical and is being publicised as such but Doust has done with his material what so many autobiographical novelists fail to do: he has turned it into a shapely story, with no extraneous material or diversions and with an absolutely consistent and convincing narrative voice.' - Sydney Morning Herald #Quote by Jon Doust
Pribadi Bilingual Boarding quotes by Kenn Kaufman
#29. It is now late August 2005. He has interrupted work on his ninth book to go to Sweden with his beautiful fiancee, Kimberly, and right now he is standing with his Swedish translator, getting ready to deliver a rousing bilingual speech to a crowd of hundreds at a grandstand next to the Baltic Sea. How far will this ride take him? If he had just checked off his bird list and gone home, the ride would have ended long ago. That's the main thing I've learned from the young man I once was and from his still-continuing adventures. Yes, it's good to go on a quest, but it's better to go with an open mind. The most significant we find may not be the thing we were seeking. That is what redeems the crazy ambivalence of birding, As trivial as our listing pursuit may be, it gets us out there in the real world, paying attention, hopeful and awake. Any day could be a special day, and probably will be, if we just go out to look. #Quote by Kenn Kaufman
Pribadi Bilingual Boarding quotes by Jonathan Swift
#30. Whoe'er excels in what we prize,
Appears a hero in our eyes;
Each girl, when pleased with what is taught,
Will have the teacher in her thought.
...
A blockhead with melodious voice,
In boarding-schools may have his choice. #Quote by Jonathan Swift
Pribadi Bilingual Boarding quotes by Stephanie Perkins
#31. It was around the time of the divorce that all traces of decency vanished, and his dream of being the next great Southern writer was replaced by his desire to be the next published writer. So he started writing these novels set in Small Town Georgia about folks with Good American Values who Fall in Love and then contract Life-Threatening Diseases and Die.
I'm serious.
And it totally depresses me, but the ladies eat it up. They love my father's books and they love his cable-knit sweaters and they love his bleachy smile and orangey tan. And they have turned him into a bestseller and a total dick.
Two of his books have been made into movies and three more are in production, which is where his real money comes from. Hollywood. And, somehow, this extra cash and pseudo-prestige have warped his brain into thinking that I should live in France. For a year.Alone.I don't understand why he couldn't send me to Australia or Ireland or anywhere else where English is the native language.The only French word I know is oui, which means "yes," and only recently did I learn it's spelled o-u-i and not w-e-e.
At least the people in my new school speak English.It was founded for pretentious Americans who don't like the company of their own children. I mean, really. Who sends their kid to boarding school? It's so Hogwarts. Only mine doesn't have cute boy wizards or magic candy or flying lessons.
Instead,I'm stuck with ninety-nine other students. There are twenty-five people #Quote by Stephanie Perkins
Pribadi Bilingual Boarding quotes by Robert Wintner
#32. Remember Boogie Rule #6 (Don't watch local children boogie killer surf and say hey they can. do it , I can do it,) You like die? #Quote by Robert Wintner
Pribadi Bilingual Boarding quotes by Louis De Bernieres
#33. All their lovers' talk began with the phrase "After the war".
After the war, when we're married, shall we live in Italy? There are nice places. My father thinks I wouldn't like it, but I would. As long as I'm with you. After the war, if we have a girl, can we call her Lemoni? After the war, if we've a son, we've got to call him Iannis. After the war, I'll speak to the children in Greek, and you can seak to them in Italian, and that way they'll grow bilingual. After the war, I'm going to write a concerto, and I'll dedicate it to you. After the war, I'm going to train to be a doctor, and I don't care if they don't let women in, I'm still going to do it. After the war I'll get a job in a convent, like Vivaldi, teaching music, and all the little girls will fall in love with me, and you'll be jealous. After the war, let's go to America, I've got relatives in Chicago. After the war we won't bring our children with any religion, they can make their own minds up when they're older. After the war, we'll get our own motorbike, and we'll go all over Europe, and you can give concerts in hotels, and that's how we'll live, and I'll start writing poems. After the war I'll get a mandola so that I can play viola music. After the war I'll love you, after the war, I'll love you, I'll love you forever, after the war. #Quote by Louis De Bernieres
Pribadi Bilingual Boarding quotes by George Shearing
#34. I studied with a blind teacher from about 5 until I was 16, at two different schools. From the age of 12 until 16, I was in a boarding school-which, I believe, at that time was compulsory for blind children. #Quote by George Shearing
Pribadi Bilingual Boarding quotes by Gayle Forman
#35. Annoyance has made me bilingual. #Quote by Gayle Forman
Pribadi Bilingual Boarding quotes by Dominic Green
#36. Cadet One stepped gingerly off the silvery boarding plank slanting down out of the saucer. "Good morning Cadet", said an invisible voice from the ceiling. "This is your Basic Proficiency Evaluation in survival on a hostile planet. The particular hostile planet we have simulated today is Earth, third planet of the Sol system. Please do not be alarmed or upset, this is only a test and may be repeated later in your training. We would like you to proceed one hundred metres north of your current position and locate a place called Starbucks. Once there, you are to sit down, use the Earth money in your pocket to acquire a thing called a 'Grande Latte', and await retrieval by your instructors. #Quote by Dominic Green
Pribadi Bilingual Boarding quotes by C.S. Lewis
#37. Life at a vile boarding school is in this way a good preparation for the Christian life, that it teaches one to live by hope. #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Pribadi Bilingual Boarding quotes by Sonja Lyubomirsky
#38. When we are fully mindful of the transience of things - an impending return home from an overseas adventure, a graduation, our child boarding the school bus for the first day of kindergarten, a close colleague changing jobs, a move to a new city - we are more likely to appreciate [be grateful for] and savor the remaining time that we do have. Although bittersweet experiences also make us sad, it is this sadness that prompts us, instead of taking it for granted, to come to appreciate the positive aspects of our vacation, colleague, or hometown; it's 'now or never.' #Quote by Sonja Lyubomirsky
Pribadi Bilingual Boarding quotes by P.G. Wodehouse
#39. ...Cupid, who never shoots with a surer aim than through the steam of boarding-house hash, sniped him where he sat. #Quote by P.G. Wodehouse
Pribadi Bilingual Boarding quotes by Julian Casablancas
#40. Boarding school didn't feel like my world, I felt like an alien; people there had a lot of money. #Quote by Julian Casablancas
