No One Was Listening

I read Steal Like an Artist recently. There is a poetic justice that my favorite bit of it was this quote, attributed to Andre Gide:

Everything that needs to be said has already been said. But since no one was listening, it needs to be said again.

This sums up a key challenge of raising children. And teaching students. And even academic writing. No wonder the quote spoke to me.
