Walkington School quotes by Jeffrey McDaniel
#1. Disasterology

The Badger is the thirteenth astrological sign.
My sign. The one the other signs evicted: unanimously.

So what? ! Think I want to read about my future
in the newspaper next to the comics?

My third grade teacher told me I had no future.
I run through snow and turn around
just to make sure I've got a past.

My life's a chandelier dropped from an airplane.
I graduated first in my class from alibi school.

There ought to be a healthy family cage at the zoo,
or an open field, where I can lose my mother
as many times as I need.

When I get bored, I call the cops, tell them
there's a pervert peeking in my window!
then I slip on a flimsy nightgown, go outside,
press my face against the glass and wait…

This makes me proud to be an American

where drunk drivers ought to wear necklaces
made from the spines of children they've run over.

I remember my face being invented
through a windshield.

All the wounds stitched with horsehair
So the scars galloped across my forehead.

I remember the hymns cherubs sang
in my bloodstream. The way even my shadow ached
when the chubby infants stopped.

I remember wishing I could be boiled like water
and made pure again. Desire
so real it could be outlined in chalk.

My eyes were the color of palm trees
in a hurrica #Quote by Jeffrey McDaniel
Walkington School quotes by James Lankford
#2. There's a lot of middle school behavior in Washington, D.C. I look at that and I say, 'I've seen that before,' it was just with a 14-year-old. #Quote by James Lankford
Walkington School quotes by Robert James Thomson
#3. I think that maps showing platform details would be useful to visitors, especially to chaperones of school groups, etc. Also useful would be either a compass rose or an arrow pointing North at every metro exit. Emerging from underground is disorienting, especially at night. #Quote by Robert James Thomson
Walkington School quotes by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
#4. How old were you then?" "Fourteen." "Do you remember anything about it?" "Very little." "You don't remember? It was like an earthquake. Apartment doors were flung wide open, people went in and took things and left. No one asked any questions. They deported a quarter of the city. Don't you remember?" "Yes, I do. But the shameful thing is, at the time it didn't seem the most important thing in the world. They explained it to us at school - why it was necessary, why it was expedient. #Quote by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
Walkington School quotes by James Hilton
#5. And sometimes, when the bell rang for call-over, he would go to the window and look across the road and over the School fence and see, in the distance, the thin line of boys filing past the bench. New times, new names ... but the old ones still remained ... Jefferson, Jennings, Jolyon, Jupp, Kingsley Primus, Kingsley Secundus, Kingsley Tertius, Kingston ... where are you all, where have you all gone to? #Quote by James Hilton
Walkington School quotes by Gretchen Carlson
#6. Everyone is busy, but I believe it depends on what you prioritize. My husband and I teach Sunday School together at our church and are very involved. #Quote by Gretchen Carlson
Walkington School quotes by Wentworth Miller
#7. I acted all the way up until Princeton. It was just one of my favorite extracurricular activities. Then I got to Princeton and had a really conservative vibe. All my friends were planning on law school, med school, or Wall Street, and suddenly acting seem like a really risky proposition. #Quote by Wentworth Miller
Walkington School quotes by Jean Sasson
#8. Saudi Arabia, and began having children, Osama bin Laden completed his high school education at the Al-Thager #Quote by Jean Sasson
Walkington School quotes by Paul Thomas Anderson
#9. My filmmaking education consisted of finding out what filmmakers I liked were watching, then seeing those films. I learned the technical stuff from books and magazines, and with the new technology you can watch entire movies accompanied by audio commentary from the director. You can learn more from John Sturges' audio track on the 'Bad Day at Black Rock' laserdisc than you can in 20 years of film school. Film school is a complete con, because the information is there if you want it. #Quote by Paul Thomas Anderson
Walkington School quotes by Eddie Huang
#10. For the first time, I ate with a bunch of other Taiwanese-Chinese kids my age who knew what the hell they were doing. Even at Chinese school, there were always kids that brought hamburgers, shunned chopsticks, or didn't get down with the funky shit. They were like faux-bootleg-Canal Street Chinamen.

That was one of the things that really annoyed me about growing up Chinese in the States. Even if you wanted to roll with Chinese/Taiwanese kids, there were barely any around and the ones that were had lost their culture and identity. They barely spoke Chinese, resented Chinese food, and if we got picked on by white people on the basketball court, everyone just looked out for themselves. It wasn't that I wanted people to carry around little red books to affirm their "Chinese-ness," but I just wanted to know there were other people that wanted this community to live on in America. #Quote by Eddie Huang
Walkington School quotes by Grace Lee Boggs
#11. Really, people are not a school of fish. Finding the leaders of the future is a question of recognizing those people who give leadership in a crisis. #Quote by Grace Lee Boggs
Walkington School quotes by Charles Wheelan
#12. Meanwhile, time is one of our most scarce resources. At the moment, you are reading instead of working, playing with the dog, applying to law school, shopping for groceries, or having sex. Life is about trade-offs, and so is economics. #Quote by Charles Wheelan
Walkington School quotes by Martin Mull
#13. Show business is just like high school, except you get paid. #Quote by Martin Mull
Walkington School quotes by Penelope Cruz
#14. You can always keep learning with acting, because the school is life and yourself and your friends and your relationships. I'm fascinated by it! It's infinito! #Quote by Penelope Cruz
Walkington School quotes by James Patterson
#15. He hadn't even come to the Teddy Roosevelt School with Sampson. #Quote by James Patterson
Walkington School quotes by Lynda Mullaly Hunt
#16. But what really gets me is that in order for Mr. Daniels to come up with this plan, he must have thought of me outside of school - when he didn't have to think of me. I bet other teachers have never let me sit in their head one second longer than they had to. #Quote by Lynda Mullaly Hunt
Walkington School quotes by Laurie Halse Anderson
#17. Why?' She nods. 'She had everything: a family who loved her, friends, activities. Her mother wants to know why she threw it all away?' Why you want to know why? Step into a tanning booth and fry yourself for two or three days. After your skin bubbles and falls off, roll in coarse salt, then put on long underwear woven from spun glass and razor wire. Over that goes your regular clothes, as long as they are tight.
Smoke gunpowder and go to school to jump through hoops, sit up and beg, and roll over on command. Listen to the whispers that curl into your head at night, calling you ugly and fat and stupid and bitch and whore and worst of all 'A disappointment.' Puke and starve and cut and drink because you need an anesthetic and it works. For a while. But then the anesthetic turns into poison and by then it's too late because you are mainlining it now, straight into your soul. It is rotting you and you can't stop. Look in a mirror and find a ghost. Hear every heartbeat scream that everythingsinglething is wrong with you. 'Why?' is the wrong question. Ask 'Why not? #Quote by Laurie Halse Anderson
Walkington School quotes by David Levithan
#18. This should be the most homoerotically charged baseball dance number since "I Don't Dance" in High School Musical 2. #Quote by David Levithan
Walkington School quotes by Anthony De Mello
#19. To relate is to react. To react is to understand oneself. To understand oneself is to be enlightened. Relationships are schools for enlightenment. #Quote by Anthony De Mello
Walkington School quotes by Terry Pratchett
#20. Well, the traveling teachers do come through every few months," said the Baron.
"Yes, sir, I know, sir, and they're useless, sir. They teach facts, not understanding. It's like teaching people about forests by showing them a saw. I want a proper school, sir, to teach reading and writing, and most of all thinking, sir, so people can find what they're good at, because someone doing what they really like is always an asset to any country, and too often people never find out until it's too late. #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Walkington School quotes by Rachel Platten
#21. I wrote my first song when I was six or seven, a silly little song. But I used to write poems in high school - not songs. #Quote by Rachel Platten
Walkington School quotes by A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
#22. I was in high school when Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru unfurled India's flag in New Delhi. #Quote by A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
Walkington School quotes by J.K. Rowling
#23. Funny way to get to a wizards' school, the train. Magic carpets all got punctures, have they? #Quote by J.K. Rowling
Walkington School quotes by Kristin Hannah
#24. It isn't about being at the same school or the same town or even the same room. It's about being together. Love is a choice you make. #Quote by Kristin Hannah
Walkington School quotes by Elwy Yost
#25. Graham is late for school because I had him stay up late to watch Citizen Kane. #Quote by Elwy Yost
Walkington School quotes by George Eliot
#26. goodness tries to get the upper hand in us whenever it seems to have the slightest chance - on Sunday mornings, perhaps, when we are set free from the grinding hurry of the week, and take the little three-year old on our knee at breakfast to share our egg and muffin; in moments of trouble, when death visits our roof or illness makes us dependent on the tending hand of a slighted wife; in quiet talks with an aged mother, of the days when we stood at her knee with our first picture-book, or wrote her loving letters from school. #Quote by George Eliot
Walkington School quotes by Ray Bradbury
#27. I am a librarian. I discovered me in the library. I went to find me in the library. Before I fell in love with libraries, I was just a six-year-old boy. The library fueled all of my curiosities, from dinosaurs to ancient Egypt. When I graduated from high school in 1938, I began going to the library three nights a week. I did this every week for almost ten years and finally, in 1947, around the time I got married, I figured I was done. So I graduated from the library when I was twenty-seven. I discovered that the library is the real school. #Quote by Ray Bradbury
Walkington School quotes by Van Morrison
#28. I educated myself. To me, school was boring. #Quote by Van Morrison
Walkington School quotes by Xeno Muller
#29. I started rowing in December 1995. The place was Association Nautique Faontainbleau in France. A friend of mine from middle school told me that I should join him 3 times a week for rowing because my hands were so big that I would'nt require oars to row. #Quote by Xeno Muller
Walkington School quotes by Shane Bunting
#30. I promised myself as a kid that I would not become that guy. So I have my finger on the pulse of what is going on and I love relevant music today. We are talking about artists like Kendrick Lamar, School Boy Q, Absoul, that whole crew. Of course Evidence and Alchemist, those guys are my brothers and I love those guys, they have been lifelong friends but I have always sort of looked up to them artistically. #Quote by Shane Bunting
Walkington School quotes by Barry Hannah
#31. There was no one, when I was in school, who talked about going in and blowing up students. The teachers were very stern and hateable, but nobody ever mentioned murder. #Quote by Barry Hannah
Walkington School quotes by Peter Lynch

Walkington School quotes by Edmund Barton
#33. I was for two years a pupil at the Model School in Fort street which was then conducted upon the Irish national system, and if any special religious instruction was given in connection with that system, I do not recollect it. #Quote by Edmund Barton
Walkington School quotes by Nick Thune
#34. In my senior year of high school, I was working at a dealership washing cars. For some reason, I asked them to give me a shot as a salesman for a shift. What happened was I sold two cars in one day and they offered me the position. After a while I decided I didn't want the job and so I told the manager I'd contracted HIV from having unprotected sex. It was only half true but I'd been feeling sick and somehow convinced myself I was really dying. I remember I sat in my boss' office, the both of us crying. Later than night he calls my dad and says 'I'm sorry your son has HIV.' It was terrible. #Quote by Nick Thune
Walkington School quotes by Ahmet Zappa

Walkington School quotes by Kailash Satyarthi

free to be a child,
free to grow and develop,
free to eat, sleep, see daylight,
free to laugh and cry,
free to play,
free to learn, free to go to school, and above all, free to dream. #Quote by Kailash Satyarthi

Walkington School quotes by Laurie Faria Stolarz
#42. It's after school, after my double detentions for gym and chemistry, and I'm at Knead, about to begin working on a new piece. I wedge the clay out against my board, enjoying the therapeutic quality of each smack, prod, and punch.
As the clay oozes between my fingers and pastes against my skin, images of all sorts begin to pop into my head. I try my best to push them away,to focus instead on the cold and clammy sensation of the mound and the way it helps me relax. But after only a few short minutes of solitude, I hear someone storm their way up the back stairwell. At first I think it's Spencer, but then I hear the voice:
"I'm coming up the stairs," Adam bellows. "I'm approaching the studio area, about to pass by the sink."
I turn to look, noticing he's standing only a few feet behind me now.
"I hope I didn't startle you this time," he says.
"Ha-ha." I hold back my smile.
"I would have called your cell to tell you I was coming up, but you never gave me your number."
"I'm fine," I assure him, unable to stifle a giggle. #Quote by Laurie Faria Stolarz
Walkington School quotes by Matt Hasselbeck
#43. Growing up in Boston, I was always Matt, Son of Former New England Patriot Don. And then when my brother Tim was a senior in high school, I became Matt, Brother of Tim. #Quote by Matt Hasselbeck
