From The Grave of Alice B. Toklas and Other Reports From the Past, by Otto Friedrich
"High-school teachers are among the most important influences on one's life, not just intellectually but psychologically as well. The pity is that so many of them are so rotten -- so incompetent and so indifferent. But in any average school there are usually a few teachers who can somehow make any subject fascinating. In Concord High School, I had two."
