Who Wrote?

1. "I walk through the long schoolroom questioning; A kind old nun in a white hood replies; The children learn to cipher and sing, To study reading-books and histories, To cut and sew, be neat in everything" (Sent in by Pat Dale)

2."Once upon a time there was a prince who wanted to marry a princess. But she had to be a real princess. He travelled all over the world to find her, yet everywhere he went, something was the matter. There were certainly enough princesses, but he couldn't be sure that they were real princesses - there was always something that wasn't right. He came home and was very sad because he wanted to marry a real princess.

One evening there was an awful storm, with thunder and lightening; the rain poured down...There was a knock on the gate of the city, and the old king went to open it. A princess was standing outside."

3. "Education is simply the soul of a society as it passed from one generation to another."
