From the very beginning of his education the child should experience the joy of discovery.

What is really important in education is not that the child learns this and that, but that the mind is matured, that energy is aroused.

If the school sends out children with a desire for knowledge and some idea of how to acquire and use it, it will have done its work.

Education is the most valuable possession a child can have.

If we succeed in giving children the love of learning.
The learning itself is sure to follow.

Education is the best investment any nation can make for its future.
To deny it to any child is a criminal betrayal.

Education is about the only thing lying around loose in the world, and it’s about the only thing a fellow can have as much of as he’s willing to haul away.

Every great advance in natural knowledge has involved the absolute rejection of authority.

Just when you think you’ve graduated from the school of experience, someone thinks up a new course.

The best educated human being is the one who understands most about the life in which he is placed.

There is no great difference between wisdom and learning.

Knowledge expands with awareness.

Rich students are seven times more likely to go to top universities than poor ones.
What does this tell us?
That the well-off will always ensure their brats, bright or not, get the best start in life.

The parents exist to teach the child, but also they must learn what the child has to teach them.
And the child has a very great deal to teach them.

Lucky parents who have fine children usually have lucky children who have fine parents.

The most important thing that parents can teach their children is how to get along without them.

The best inheritance parents can give their children is a few minutes of their time each day.

Parents can plant magic in a child’s mind through certain words spoken.

A mother never realises that her children are no longer children.

Just when a man discovers that his parents were right.
His children start telling him he’s wrong.

When you teach your son.
You teach your son’s son.

If parents would only realise how they bore their children.

Mum, sometimes we get so busy, that the time just slips away.
And we forget to mention, all the things we want to say.

No matter what you’ve done for yourself or for humanity, if you can’t look back on having given love and attention to your own family, what have you really accomplished?

There is no influence so powerful as that of the mother.

Nobody cooks for her.
Nobody cleans for her.
Nobody does her laundry.
A mother is expected to care for all the family.
We must care for her.

Anyone can be a father.
But it takes someone special to be a dad.

I thought I would get over it, but I haven’t.
Not only in the night, but during the day, even at busy times, and at happy times, my mother and my father enter my mind.
I’ve decided that I don’t want to ‘come to terms’ with losing them.
I’m sad and I miss them both, but I am glad that I am sad.

If you are a father or mother you are being watched.
You are being watched by a child.
What you are now, remember, determines in large measure what your child will be in twenty years time.

You hear it said that fathers want their sons to be what they feel they cannot themselves be, but it also works the other way.
A boy wants something very special from his father.

Some fathers cannot bear the thought of their precious daughters in other men’s arms.
That is when they can change from loving tender protectors into untrusting tyrants.

The father of all has no name given him since he is unbegotten.
For a being who has a name given him has someone older than him to give him that name.
‘God’, ‘Creator’, ‘Lord’, ‘Master’, are not names but titles derived from his benefits and works.
