But I wasn't sure. I wasn't sure at all. How did I know that someday--at college, in Europe, somewhere, anywhere--the bell jar, with its stifling distortions, wouldn't descend again?
You're really not that good a mechanic, Edward. Maybe you should have Rosalie take a look at it tonight, just so you look good if Mike decides to let you help, you know. Not that it wouldn't be fun to watch his face if Rosalie showed up to help. But since Rosalie is supposed to be across the country attending college, I guess that's not the best idea. Too bad.
But it all zipped by. One minute Marlena and I were up to our eyeballs, and the next thing we knew the kids were borrowing the car and fleeing the coop for college. And now, here I am. In my nineties and alone.
The great thing about working out at a gym is that if you put in effort, you get very obvious results. The same should be true of college. A professor's job is to teach students how to see their minds growing in the same way they can see their muscles grow when they look in a mirror.
Out of the nursery into the college and back into the nursery; there's your intellectual pattern for the past five centuries or more.
Most days, for the last dozen or so years, I attributed to Charlie, or at least to our breakup, most things that have gone wrong for me. Like: I wouldn't have packed in college; I wouldn't have gone to work in Record and Tape; I wouldn't have had an unsatisfactory personal life. This is the woman who broke my heart, who ruined my life, this woman is single-handedly responsible for my poverty and directionlessness and failure, the woman I dreamed about regularly for a good five years.
All life lessons are not learned at college,'she thought. Life teaches them everywhere.
Ever since college, I make friends. They get married. I lose friends.
My passion for that recovery began when I was in grad school. I was assigned to read the women poets that Emily Dickinson read and I was hooked. I began obsessively reading 19th-century novels by women. There was a richness, humor and a detailed portrayal of the plight of women in 19th-century America. It became a cause for me to bring the possibility of teaching these writers at the college level to the forefront.
A psychologist once asked a group of college students to jot down, in thirty seconds, the initials of the people they disliked. Some of the students taking the test could think of only one person. Others listed as many as fourteen. The interesting fact that came out of this bit of research was this Those who disliked the largest number were themselves the most widely disliked. When we find ourselves continually disliking others, we ought to bring ourselves up short and ask ourselves the question 'What is wrong with me.'
Unequal funding resources also results in unequal educational opportunity when you consider studies that show that one half of low income students who are qualified to attend college do not attend because they can't afford to.
I feel pretty good, ... To not swing a baseball bat in almost a year, no spring training, and go to a college and hit in a cage for a week and come out here and face major league pitching ... like I try to tell these guys, 'If I give you a little, it's a lot in this stage.'
She's excited to see the new track after all those years of running there in high school and for three years in college.
A professional player is smarter than a college man. He uses his noodle. He knows what to do and when to do it. He rarely goes up in the air as is the case with most of our college players when they get in a tight place.
I like the way we shot free throws, but we'll have to take better shots tomorrow against Mississippi College.
I've always wanted to be a coach I never wanted to play basketball professionally. I happened to get lucky and made a career out of it, but my decision was to be a college coach when I was in college. But I got sidetracked with this.
I'm a big sports fan. College football is my favorite.
If your kid doesn't go to college, you subsidize your own retirement.
I think any new guy coming in, it's going to happen. I kind of expected that. Jeff told me to expect that. Like I said, it gave me a chance to work on my composure. In the past it's kind of gotten to me in college and I've been working on it a lot. I felt like I did a good job with it.
Students need to check if a college is awarding degrees which are valid. The people who are setting up these institutions play on a lack of awareness.
Actually the prospect of going into debt is just enough to discourage some people from applying to college.
My wife and I stay up late at night trying to figure out how we'll send our daughters to college,
He was a very tough teacher, but a very fair teacher. Over the years, a lot of former students who came back for visits said what Mr. Bassett taught them carried them all the way through college.
He has a chance to maybe be the best ever to lace them up. At 21 years old right now, and doing what he's doing ... I mean, the kid should be a junior in college.
The greatest challenge I think is adjusting to not playing baseball. The reason for that is I had to come out of baseball and come into the business world, not being a college graduate, not being educated to come into the business world the way I should have.
Ron White connects with the college students.
He had been given a strong faith through his parents. As an adult, in his teen years and early college, he kind of got away from the church, and ended up going to St. John's University in Minnesota. Tom was very intellectual, enjoyed the discourse with monks, had a lot of questions, and I think the monks provided a great insight into the faith he had grown up with and somehow had been missing.
It was frustrating, the first couple of years. It was hard for me. It was an adjustment, coming from college, being in the big city. It took me awhile to get comfortable.
Sharon is really getting her game together. She is starting to pick up the pace of the college game.
I travelled to California when I was 18 and went to Los Angeles State College.
