"It is education that has altered my life. Carried me far."

"To admit the change in my life I must speak of years as a student, of losses, of gains."

"In singing the praise of my lower-class past, I remind myself of my separation from that past, bring memory to silence. . . . I remember what was so grievously lost to define what was necessarily gained."

Richard Rodriguez, Hunger of Memory: The Education of Richard Rodriguez 5, 6 (Bantam Books, 1983)
