I Find Myself, Each September, Increasingly Appalled By The Dismal Lists Of Texts That My Sons Are Doomed To Waste A School Year Reading. What I Get As Compensation Is A Measure Of Insight Into Why Our Society Has Come To Admire Montel Williams And Ricki Lake So Much More Than Dante And Homer.

Ralph Waldo Emerson
From Education
189
I Believe That Our Own Experience Instructs Us That The Secret Of Education Lies In Respecting The Pupil. It Is Not For You To Choose What He Shall Know, What He Shall Do. It Is Chosen And Foreordained, And He Only Holds The Key To His Own Secret.

James Baldwin
A Talk To Teachers
197
The Paradox Of Education Is Precisely This-That As One Begins To Become Conscious One Begins To Examine The Society In Which He Is Being Educated. The Purpose Of Education, Finally, Is To Create In A Person The Ability To Look At The World For Himself To Make His Own Decisions.... But No Society Is Really Anxious To Have That Kind Of Person Around.

In America, We Are Proof That The Romantic Notion Of The Natural Writer Is A Myth. In Japan, Where No Formal Training Is Offered In Writing, The Myth May Be A Sad Reality That Prevents Many People From Becoming Writers.

Superman And Me
215
I Learned To Read With A Superman Comic Book. Simple Enough, I Suppose. I Cannot Recall Which Particular Superman Comic Book I Read, Nor Can I Remember Which Villain He Fought In That Issue, I Cannot Remember The Plot, Nor The Means By Which I Obtained The Comic Book. What I Can Remember Is This: I Was 3 Years Old, A Spokane Indian Boy Living With His Family On The Spokane Indian Reservation In Eastern Washington State.

In Some Ways, It Seems That The Valedictorian Is A Status Designed For A Simpler Time, When Few People Aspired To College. It Isn't Entirely Suited To A Brutally Competitive Age In Which The Dividing Line Between Those Who Go To College And Those Who Don't May Be The Most Significant Fissure In American Society....

Abused And Scorned Though We May Be, Our Destiny Is Tied Up With America's Destiny. Before The Pilgrims Landed At Plymouth, We Were Here. Before The Pen Of Jefferson Etched The Majestic Words Of The Declaration Of Independence Across The Pages Of History, We Were Here.

323
Countless Studies Document The Link Between Society And Psyche: People Who Have Close Friends And Confidants, Friendly Neighbors, And Supportive Co-Workers Are Less Likely To Experience Sadness, Loneliness, Low Self-Esteem, And Problems With Eating And Sleeping... For In Study After Study People Themselves Report That Good Relationships With Family Members, Friends, Or Romantic Partners-Far More Than Money Or Fame-Are Prerequisites For Their Happiness.

I've Known Only A Few People, However, That Have Grown Up With The Oddly Permanent Feeling Of Having Lost And Abandoned A Home That You Never, In Fact, Really Knew, A Feeling That Has Nothing To Do With Apartments, Houses, Or Miles, But Rather The Sense That No Matter How Far You Travel, Or How Long You Stay Still, There Is No Place That You Can Always Return To, No Place Where You Fully Belong.

We Scrawl "Friends Forever" In Yearbooks, But We Quietly Realize, With Relief That Some Bonds Are Meant To Be Shed, Like Snakeskin Or A Showtime Subscription. It's Nature', Way Of Allowing You To Change, Adapt, Evolve, Or Devolve As You Wish-And Freeing You From The Exhaustion Of Multifront Friend Maintenance.
Malcolm Gladwell

I Have Been Assured By A Very Knowing American Of My Acquaintance In London, That A Young Healthy Child Well Nursed Is At A Year Old A Most Delicious, Nourishing, And Wholesome Food, Whether Stewed, Roasted, Baked, Or Broiled; And I Make No Doubt That It Will Equally Serve In A Fricassee Or A Ragout.

John Ruskin
From The Roots Of Honor
413
And As The Captain Of A Ship Is Bound To Be The Last Man To Leave His Ship In Case Of Wreck ... So The Manufacturer, In Any Commercial Crisis Or Distress, Is Bound To Take The Suffering Of It With His Men, And Even To Take More Of It For Himself Than He Allows His Men To Feel; As A Father Would In A Famine, Shipwreck, Or Battle, Sacrifice Himself For His Son.
Booker T. Washington

417
To Those Of My Race Who Depend On Bettering Their Condition In A Foreign Land Or Who Underestimate The Importance Of Cultivating Friendly Relations With The Southern White Man, Who Is Their Next-Door Neighbour, I Would Say: "Cast Down Your Bucket Where You Are"-Cast It Down In Making Friends In Every Manly Way Of The People Of All Races By Whom We Are Surrounded.

I Live From The Refuse Of Others. I Am A Scavenger. I Think It A Sound And Honorable Niche, Although If I Could I Would Naturally Prefer To Live The Comfortable Consumer Life, Perhaps-And Only Perhaps-As A Slightly Less Wasteful Consumer Owing To What I Have Learned As A Scavenger.

What The Bagel Man Saw
443
His Economist Friends Thought He Had Lost His Mind. They Made Oblique Remarks (And Some Not So Oblique) About "A Terrible Waste Of Talent."... Driving Around The Office Parks That Encircle Washington, He Solicited Customers With A Simple Pitch: Early In The Morning, He Would Deliver Some Bagels And A Cash Basket To A Company's Snack Room; He Would Return Before Lunch To Pick Up The Money And The Leftovers. It Was An Honor-System Commerce Scheme, And It Worked.
Matthew B. Crawford
The Case For Working With Your Hands
449
Some People Are Hustled Off To College, Then To The Cubicle, Against Their Own Inclinations And Natural Bents, When They Would Rather Be Learning To Build Things Or Fix Things.... It Is A Rare Person, Male Or Female, Who Is Naturally Inclined To Sit Still For 17 Years In School, And Then Indefinitely At Work.

How Does The Language We Use Reveal Who We Are?
Central Essay
Amy Tan
Mother Tongue
700
Lately, I've Been Giving More Thought To The Kind Of English My Mother Speaks. Like Others, I Have Described It To People As "Broken" Or "Fractured" English. But I Wince When I Say That. It Has Always Bothered Me That I Can Think Of No Other Way To Describe It Other Than "Broken," As If It Were Damaged And Needed To Be Fixed, As If It Lacked A Certain Wholeness And Soundness.
Classic Essay
George Orwell
Politics And The English Language
707
Political Language-And With Variations This Is True Of All Political Parties, From Conservatives To Anarchists-Is Designed To Make Lies Sound Truthful And Murder Respectable, And To Give An Appearance Of Solidity To Pure Wind.

Walt Whitman
Slang In America
720
Such Is Slang, Or Indirection, An Attempt Of Common Humanity To Escape From Bald Literalism, And Express Itself Illimitably, Which In Highest Walks Produces Poets And Poems, And Doubtless In Pre-Historic Times Gave The Start To, And Perfected, The Whole Immense Tangle Of The Old Mythologies.
Gloria Anzaldúa
How To Tame A Wild Tongue
725
So, If You Want To Really Hurt Me, Talk Badly About My Language. Ethnic Identity Is Twin Skin To Linguistic Identity-I Am My Language. Until I Can Take Pride In My Language, I Cannot Take Pride In Myself.
Marjorie Agosin
Always Living In Spanish
735
Destiny And The Always Ambiguous Nature Of History Continued My Family's Enforced Migration, And Because Of It I, Too, Became One Who Had To Live And Speak In Translation.
Firoozeh Dumas
The "F Word"
738
My Name, Firoozeh, Chosen By My Mother, Means "Turquoise" In Farsi. In America, It Means "Unpronounceable" Or "I'm Not Going To Talk To You Because I Cannot Possibly Learn Your Name And I Just Don't Want To Have To Ask You Again And Again Because You'll Think I'm Dumb Or You Might Get Upset Or Something." My Father, Incidentally, Had Wanted To Name Me Sara. I Do Wish He Had Won That Argument.
Charles Krauthammer
In Plain English: Let's Make It Official
742
One Of The Major Reasons For America's Great Success As The World's First "Universal Nation," For Its Astonishing And Unmatched Capacity For Assimilating Immigrants, Has Been That An Automatic Part Of Acculturation Was The Acquisition Of English.
Steven Pinker
Words Don't Mean What They Mean
745
When People Talk, They Lay Lines On Each Other, Do A Lot Of Role Playing, Sidestep, Shilly-Shally And Engage In All Manner Of Vagueness And Innuendo. We Do This And Expect Others To Do It, Yet At The Same Time We Profess To Long For The Plain Truth, For People To Say What They Mean, Simple As That, Such Hypocrisy Is A Human Universal.

Central Essay
James McBride
Hip Hop Planet
788
To Many Of My Generation, Despite All Attempts To Exploit It, Belittle It, Numb It, Classify It, And Analyze It, Hip Hop Remains An Enigma, A Clarion Call, A Cry Of "I Am" From The Youth Of The World. Weil Be Wise, I Suppose, To Start Paying Attention.

From Show And Tell (Graphic Essay)
805
Traditional Thinking Has Long Held That Truly Great Works Of Art And Literature Are Only Possible When The Two Are Kept At Arm's Length. Words And Pictures Together Are Considered, At Best, A Diversion For The Masses, At Worst A Product Of Crass Commercialism.

Steven Johnson
Watching TV Makes You Smarter
827
For Decades, We've Worked Under The Assumption That Mass Culture Follows A Path Declining Steadily Toward Lowest-Common-Denominator Standards, Presumably Because The "Masses" Want Dumb, Simple Pleasures And Big Media Companies Try To Give The Masses What They Want. But... The Exact Opposite Is Happening: The Culture Is Getting More Cognitively Demanding, Not Less.... The Most Debased Forms Of Mass Diversion-Video Games And Violent Television Dramas And Juvenile Sitcoms-Turn Out To Be Nutritional After All.
Daniel Harris
Celebrity Bodies
838
We Blame Pop Culture For Turning Us Into Diet-Crazed Bulimics, But How Can Celebrities Be "Role Models," However Derelict, When Almost No One Seems To Imitate Them, When We Get Fatter Even As They Get Skinnier, Exercise Less Even As They Train Like Triathletes?
Chuck Klosterman
My Zombie, Myself. Why Modern Life Feels Rather Undead
846
Every Zombie War Is A War Of Attrition. It's Always A Numbers Game. And Its More Repetitive Than Complex.... The Principal Downside To Any Zombie Attack Is That The Zombies Will Never Stop Coming; The Principal Downside To Life Is That You Will Be Never Be Finished With Whatever It Is You Do.

Rachel Carson
From Silent Spring

There Was A Strange Stillness. The Birds, Fir Example-Where Had They Gone? Many People Spoke Of Them, Puzzled And Disturbed. The Feeding Stations In The Backyards Were Deserted. The Few Birds Seen Anywhere Were Moribund; They Trembled Violently And Could Not Fly. It Was A Spring Without Voices.

From The Land Ethic
906
It Is Inconceivable To Hue That An Ethical Relation To Land Can Exist Without Love, Respect, And Admiration Jbr Land, And A High Regard For Its Value. By Value, Of Course I Mean Something Fir Broader Than Mere Economic Value; I Mean Value In The Philosophical Sense.
Lewis Thomas
Natural Man
915
We Still Argue The Details, But It Is Conceded Almost Everywhere That We Are Not The Masters Of Nature That We Thought Ourselves; We Are As Dependent As The Leaves Or Midges Or Fish On The Rest Of Life. We Are Part Of The System.
Bill McKibben
From The End Of Nature
918
A Purely Personal Effort Is, Of Course, Just A Gesture-A Good Gesture, But A Gesture. The Greenhouse Effect Is The First Environmental Problem We Can't Escape By Moving To The Woods. There Are No Personal Solutions.
Terry Tempest Williams
The Clan Of One-Breasted Women
927
Most Statistics Tell Us Breast Cancer Is Genetic, Hereditary, With Rising Percentages Attached To Fatty Diets, Childlessness, Or Becoming Pregnant After Thirty. What They Don't Say Is That Living In Utah May Be The Greatest Hazard Of All.
Joy Williams
Save The Whales, Screw The Shrimp
935
A Picture Of A Poor Old Sea Turtle With Barnacles On Her Back, All Ancient And Exhausted, Depositing Her Five Gallons Of Doomed Eggs In The Sand Hardly Fills You With Joy, Because You Realize, Quite Rightly, That Just Outside The Frame Falls The Shadow Of The Condo. What's Cropped From The Shot Of Ocean Waves Crashing On A Pristine Shore Is The Plastics Plant, And Just Beyond The Dunes Lies A Parking Lot.
E.O. Wilson

Four Score And Seven Years Ago Our Fathers Brought Forth On This Continent A New Nation, Conceived In Liberty, And Dedicated To The Proposition That All Men Are Created Equal.

1048
I Had Resolved To Find A Way To Make My Father Human In The Gunman's Eyes. And I Wanted Him To See That What He Had Done Was Horrible. I Thought About Introducing Myself As The Daughter Of His Victim But Discarded The Idea, Because I Did Not Want Him To Regard Me As "A Jew" Or As An Adversary. Given The Palestinians' Eagerness To Get Their Views Out To The World, I Reasoned That The Best Way To Gain Access To Him Would Be To Identify Myself To Him And His Family Simply As An American Journalist Who Was Interested In Hearing His Story.
Sarah Vowell
The Partly Cloudy Patriot
1057
In Toy Ninety-Five-Cent Copy Of The Declaration Of Independence And The Constitution, The Two Documents Are Separated By Only A Blank Half Page. I Forget That There Are Eleven Years Between Them, Eleven Years Of War And The Whole Articles Of Confederation Debacle. In My Head, The Two Documents Are Like The A Side And B Side Of The Greatest Single Ever Released That Was Recorded In One Great Drunken Night, But No, There's A Lot Of Bleeding Life Between Them. Dead Boys And Dead Indians And Valley Forge.
