My weapon is literature
The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.
Courage, conviction and confidence.
Educate the children and it won't be necessary to punish the men.
The knowledge of all things is possible
There is no authority who decides what is a good idea.
The highest result of education is tolerance.
Imagination is more important than knowledge.
If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again, there is no use in reading it at all.
It is better to know how to learn than to know.
The most important part of teaching is to teach what it is to know.
I like poems you can tack all over with a hammer and there are no hollow places.
It is not enough for the teacher to love the child. She must first love and understand the universe. She must prepare herself, and truly work at it.
Patience is a virtue, and I'm learning patience. It's a tough lesson.
The delight of opening a new pursuit, or a new course of reading, imparts the vivacity and novelty of youth even to old age.
Free the child's potential, and you will transform him into the world.
Investigate, educate and organize.
I cannot teach anybody anything. I can only make them think
Make it a rule never to give a child a book you would not read yourself.
Language is courage: the ability to conceive a thought, to speak it, and by doing so to make it true.
The man who is fond of books is usually a man of lofty thought, and elevated opinions.
