Edward Blishen
Quotations


The work was like peeling an onion. The outer skin came off with difficulty . . . but in no time you’d be down to its innards, tears streaming from your eyes as more and more beautiful reductions became possible.

Education [is not] a discipline at all. Half vocational, half an emptiness dressed up in garments borrowed from philosophy, psychology, literature.

Life is amazing: and the teacher had better prepare himself to be a medium for that amazement.
