An eternal question about children is, how should we educate them?
Politicians and educators consider more school days in a year, more
science and math, the use of computers and other technology in the
classroom, more exams and tests, more certification for teachers, and
less money for art. All of these responses come from the place where we
want to make the child into the best adult possible, not in the ancient
Greek sense of virtuous and wise, but in the sense of one who is an
efficient part of the machinery of society. But on all these counts,
soul is neglected. - Thomas Moore
"What would happen if one generation were raised with respect and without violence?"
“If we cannot conquer our personal fears, then a life of a thousand years is a tragedy.
If we can conquer them, then a life of a single day is a triumph.” Bruce Lee
As a single footstep will not make a
path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the
mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a
deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we
wish to dominate our lives. — Henry David Thoreau
