The curse

  • In calling this little book 'The Curse of Education,' I trust that I shall not be misunderstood to disparage culture. The term 'education' is used, for want of a better word, to express the conventional mode of teaching and bringing up children, and of educating youth in this and other civilized countries. It is with education systems, with the universal method of cramming the mind with facts, and particularly with the manufacture of uniformity and mediocrity by subjecting every individual to a common process, regardless of his natural bent, that I have chiefly to find fault. ...

  • What astonishes me about learning how to program is not that it's so hard, but that it's so easy. Am I nuts? Hardly. It's just that my curse is the curse of a perfect memory, and I remember piano lessons. My poor mother paid $600 in 1962 for a beautiful cherrywood spinet, and every week for two years I trucked off to Wilkins School of Music for a five dollar lesson. It wasn't that I was a reluctant student; I love music and I genuinely wanted to master the damned thing.

  • The Friday before winter break, my mom packed me an overnight bag and a few deadly weapons and took me to a new boarding school. We picked up my friends Annabeth and Thalia on the way. It was an eight-hour drive from New York to Bar Harbor, Maine. Sleet and snow pounded the highway. Annabeth, Thalia, and I hadn't seen each other in months, but between the blizzard and the thought of what we were about to do, we were too nervous to talk much. Except for my mom. She talks more when she's nervous. By the time we finally got to Westover Hall, it was getting...

  • The first edition of this book appeared in 1946. Eight translations were made of it, and there were numerous paperback editions. In a paperback of 1961, a new chapter was added on rent control, which had not been specifically considered in the first edition apart from government price-fixing in general. A few statistics and illustrative references were brought up to date. Otherwise no changes were made until now. The chief reason was that they were not thought necessary.

  • There’s an old Chinese curse which goes, “May you live in interesting times.” I think it must have been especially aimed at folks who keep diaries (and if they follow Roger’s edict, that number will soon be increased by three: Bill Gelb, Sandra Jackson, and Herb “Give Me The World And Let Me Boss It” Porter). I sat here in my little home office—which is actually just a corner of the kitchen to which I have added a shelf and a bright light—pounding the keys of my typewriter for nearly five hours last night.

  • The Last Bite Seren snagged her fishnet stocking on the buckles of her New Rock boots. She cursed under her breath as the fabric ripped, but where she was going no-one would notice one hole larger than the rest in her hosiery. She checked herself out in the mirror. She didn't look too bad at all. The eyeliner had gone on okay at the third attempt, more old school gothic than spooky kid. Her face was perfectly pale and her blood red lips were lined with black.

  • In preparing this, his latest volume, the author found himself embarrassed from the beginning, because of the large amount of material which came into his hands, and the consequent difficulty of selection and condensation. There is not a chapter which might not have been extended to twice its present length, nor a fact stated, or argument used, which might not have been supplemented by many equally pertinent and conclusive. The extent to which alcohol curses the whole people cannot be shown in a few pages: the sad and terrible history would fill hundreds of volumes.

I said I am no sinner.’ ‘Are you sure?’ ‘Yes, I am damn sure!’ ‘But how are you damn sure?’ ‘Look, I pay my taxes, I am a law-abiding citizen, I haven’t killed anybody, and I give the best to my family, and hence I am no...

  • 76 Business aT a Crossroads High levels of inequality cause serious social problems. In their book, The Spirit Level, Richard Wilkinson and Kate Pickett marshal a wealth of evidence showing that social ills, including rates of physical and mental illness, teenage births, crime, obesity and violence, and relatively low educational performance and social mobility, all correlate much more closely with the degree of inequality within societies than with absolute levels of income. Inequality is the curse of mature, liberal capitalist societies, particularly of the U.S. and the U.K.

  • This is the great meaning of power sharing: the long years of endless conspiracy by all those who should know better, who share their power to create the monster. Napoleon eventually marches on Moscow and burns it, only to see his armies decimated by general Winterovich. Defeated, he descendeth into Elba; yet he is miraculously resurrected. “All rapturously greet the man they cursed the day before and will curse again a month later”. 6 Once more France shares its power with Napoleon; once more he is destroyed, this time by general Bluecher and Wellington.
