dbp:quote
  • Lilian Lindsay on her career choice
  • "Miss Buss … sent for me and announced that I was destined to be a teacher of the deaf and dumb. Whether the sudden attack roused my rebellious spirit or I may have had an allergy to teaching I do not know, but I refused to teach. This enraged Miss Buss who stated emphatically "Then I will prevent you from doing anything else". Like a flash I replied "You cannot prevent me from being a dentist". She prevented me from having that second scholarship. I knew nothing of dentistry, but having stated boldly that I would be a dentist, there was nothing else to be done."
