Rank #15: I wrote a book!
It has been said that the best teacher will show you where to look, but not tell you what to see.

The expression, “It takes a village to raise a child.” has been overused and I can’t totally agree with it. It would be more appropriate to say it takes a village to support the parents so they can raise their child.
