1. "After some 30 years of [analyzing teaching], I have concluded that classroom teaching—particularly at the elementary and secondary levels—is perhaps the most complex, most challenging, and most demanding, subtle, nuanced, and frightening activity that our species has ever invented. In fact, when I compared the complexity of teaching with that much more highly rewarded profession, “doing medicine,” I concluded that the only time medicine even approaches the complexity of an average day of classroom teaching is in an emergency room during a natural disaster. When 30 patients want your attention at the same time, only then do you approach the complexity of the average classroom on an average day."

    In this hilarious series by artist Kurt McRobert, we take a look at all the different kinds of New York City bikers. The illustrations show everything from a fashion forward cyclist, with her fedora hat and red pumps cruising down the streets of Soho, to the fanny pack sporting tourists, with their classic I heart NY shirts, stopping traffic to take their shots.

  6. "Try to keep your soul young and quivering right up to old age, and to imagine right up to the brink of death that life is only beginning. I think that is the only way to keep adding to one’s talent, and one’s inner happiness."
