Who Wrote?

1. "Let all the little poets be gathered together in classes

And let prizes be given to them by the Prize Asses

And let them be sure to call all the little poets young

And worse follow what's bad begun

But do not expect the Muse to attend this school

Why look already how far off she has flown, she is no fool"

2."It is an anxious, sometimes a dangerous thing to be a doll. Dolls cannot choose; they can only be chosen; they cannot 'do'; they can only be done by; children who do not understand this often do wrong things, and then the dolls are hurt and abused and lost; and when this happens dolls cannot speak, nor do anything except be hurt and abused and lost. If you have any dolls, you should remember that."

3. "No man who worships education has got the best out of education...

Without a gentle contempt for education, no man's education is complete."

(Sent in by Eddie Halliday)
