Journey Quotes

The adolescent frequently supposes that she is breaking out of the confines of her mundane, schoolgirl existence simply in order to break rules and defy authority. . . . She rids herself of the "oughts" and "musts" that convert every minor infraction into a sin of omission or commission.

Picture Quotes

Consign us to neatly paved retirement villages? Trample us in the dust as they go flying out to their new galaxies?

We belong to that order of mammals, the primates, distinguished by its Louise J. Kaplan Picture Quote

Picture Quotes

We belong to that order of mammals, the primates, distinguished by its propensity for repeated single litters, intense parental care, long life-spans, late sexual maturity, and a complex and extensive social existence...
