A character I wish I had written
  1. "Rarely is the question asked: is our children learning?"
  2. "I have zero desire, just so you know, to be in the limelight"
  3. "In Texas we don't do nuance"
  4. "The soft bigotry of low expectations"
    I genuinely think this one is brilliant
  5. "I'm hopeful. I know there is a lot of ambition in Washington, obviously. But I hope the ambitious realize they are more likely to succeed with success as opposed to failure"
  6. "I know how hard it is for you to put food on your family"
  7. "To those of you who received honors, awards, and distinctions I say well done. And to the C students I say, you too can be president of the United States"
  8. "You teach a child to read and he, or her, will be able to pass a literacy test"
  9. "It's clearly a budget. It's got a lot of numbers in it"
  10. "I want to thank you for taking time out of your day to come and witness my hanging"
