The Crazy Quest of Schools


The facilitation of existence
such that it is possible
in the harshest of circumstances
is the ultimate quest of schools.

The harsher the circumstances become,
the stronger the schools become,
the less you can live without.

Though you can live without;
probably more so
than you will be able to do
in the harshest of circumstances.

So what's the crazier quest?

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

Only in sleep I see their faces,
Children I played with when I was a child,
Louise comes back with her brown hair braided,
Annie with ringlets warm and wild.
