“Teachers, let me tell you, are born deceivers of the lowest sort, since what they want from life is impossible – time-freed, existential youth forever. It commits them to terrible deceptions and departures from the truth. And literature, being lasting, is their ticket”

from The Sportswriter (1986) by Richard Ford
