1. Education
Mary Catherine Bateson Quotes
Women's Voices: Quotations by Women
Quote collection assembled by Jone Johnson Lewis
Quotation: Most higher education is devoted to affirming the traditions and origins of an existing elite and transmitting them to new members.
Quotation: The need to sustain human growth should be a matter of concern for the entire society, even more fundamental than the problem of sustaining productivity. This, surely, is the deepest sense of homemaking, whether in a factory or a college or a household.
Quotation: Education, whether for success or failure, is never finished. Building and sustaining the settings in which individuals can grow and unfold, not "kept in their place," but empowered to become all they can be, is not the only task of parents and teachers, but the basis of management and political leadership--and simple friendship.
Quotation: Worlds can be found by a child and an adult bending down and looking together under the grass stems or at the skittering crabs in a tidal pool.
Quotation: We are not what we know but what we are willing to learn.
Quotation: Caring can be learned by all human beings, can be worked into the design of every life, meeting an individual need as well as a pervasive need in society.
Quotation: Worlds can be found by a child and an adult bending down and looking together under the grass stems or at the skittering crabs in a tidal pool.
Quotation: Of any stopping place in life, it is good to ask whether it will be a good place from which to go on as well as a good place to remain.
Quotation: Sharing is sometimes more demanding than giving. 
Quotation: In many ways, constancy is an illusion.
Quotation: Fear is not a good teacher. The lessons of fear are quickly forgotten.
Quotation: The capacity to combine commitment with skepticism is essential to democracy.
Quotation: There are few things as toxic as a bad metaphor. You can't think without metaphors. 
Quotation: The Christian tradition was passed on to me as a great rich mixture, a bouillabaisse of human imagination and wonder brewed from the richness of individual lives.
Quotation: When any relationship is characterized by difference, particularly a disparity in power, there remains a tendency to model it on the parent-child-relationship. Even protectiveness and benevolence toward the poor, toward minorities, and especially toward women have involved equating them with children.
