What Book is It?? #2

I wonder if you can guess this quote; beginning or ending paragraph from a book.
Suggest the book and author.
It is the beginning paragraph,
He is a famous English Writer,
and This should be HARD...
'NOW, what i want is, Facts. Teach these boys and girls nothing but Facts. Facts alone are wanted in life. Plant nothing else, and root out everything else. You can only form the minds of reasoning animals upon Facts: nothing else will ever be of any service to them. This is the principle on which i bring up my own children, and this is the principle on which i bring up these children. Stick to Facts, sir!'
Any Suggestions??

Title: Golden: A retelling of "Rapunzel"
Author: Cameron Dokey

Plot:Before Rapunzel's birth, her mother made a dangerous deal with the sorceress Melisande: If she could not love newborn Rapunzel just as she appeared, she would surrender the child to Melisande. When Rapunzel was born completely bald and without hope of ever growing hair, her horrified mother sent her away with the sorceress to an uncertain future.

After sixteen years of raising Rapunzel as her own child, Melisande reveals that she has another daughter, Rue, who was cursed by a wizard years ago and needs Rapunzel's help. Rue and Rapunzel have precisely "two nights and the day that falls between" to break the enchantment. But bitterness and envy come between the girls, and if they fail to work together, Rue will remain cursed.....Forever.
