I’ve neverreally worked--at something real, something that would makethe slightest difference to somebody…. Okay, so I’ve donewell, although I think anybody could do well at this place ifthey were half-way verbal. All the classes are small, and wedon’t have that many exams, so all you have to do, like wealways kid each other, is talk good. …So with all the studyingand talking good, you know what I’d really like to do?Carpentry. I’d like to build a house, or fix someone’s stairs orporch. Something real.” ~ from David Elkin’s The Hurried Child
