More From Frank McCourt
- "The sky is the limit. You never have the same experience twice."
- "I had no accomplishments except surviving. But that isn’t enough in the community where I came from, because everybody was doing it. So I wasn’t prepared for America, where everybody is glowing with good teeth and good clothes and food."
- "Happiness is hard to recall. Its just a glow."

- "Teachers make a difference, and we would serve our students better by focusing on attracting and retaining the quality teachers by raising teacher pay."― Jeb Bush
