Friday Quote

Home was the place where I was forced to conform to someone else’s image of who and what I should be. School was the place where I could forget that self and, through ideas, reinvent myself.

Bell Hooks, Teaching to Transgress, p. 3.

[…] the pleasure of teaching is an act of resistance countering the overwhelming boredom, uninterest, and apathy that so often characterize the way professors and students feel about teaching and learning, about the classroom experience

Bell Hooks, Teaching to Transgress, p. 10.
