Muriel Spark   Category:

Parents learn a lot from their children about coping with life.
Muriel Spark   Category:

To me education is a leading out of what is already there in the pupil's soul. To Miss Mackay it is a putting in of something that is not there, and that is not what I call education. I call it intrusion.
Muriel Spark   Category: Education

When a noble life has prepared old age, it is not decline that it reveals, but the first days of immortality.
