There is one picture where you see the back of Gable and the front of Marilyn, and there’s a rubber tire somewhere. And she looks very happy and she’s hugging him and that was the moment when he told her he was going to be a father -I knew about it because he told me the day before- and she was so thrilled because there he was 63, expecting his first child, and as you know she’s had some bad luck herself so, she was just delighted with that.

I think the big mistake in schools is trying to teach children anything, and by using fear as the basic motivation. Fear of getting failing grades, fear of not staying with your class, etc. Interest can produce learning on a scale compared to fear as a nuclear explosion to a firecracker.
