Bad times have a scientific value. These are occasions a good learner would not miss.
The secret in education lies in respecting the student.
I pay the schoolmaster, but it is the school boys who educate my son.
Respect the child. Be not too much his parent. Trespass not on his solitude.
There is a time in every man's education when he arrives at the conviction that envy is ignorance; that imitation is suicide.

Our knowledge is the amassed thought and experience of innumerable minds.
We are not commanded (or forbidden) to love our mates, our children, our friends, our country because such affections come naturally to us and are good in themselves, although we may corrupt them. We are commanded to love our neighbor because our natural attitude toward the other is one of either indifference or hostility.

The achievements which society rewards are won at the cost of diminution of personality
Let us, then, be up and doing, with a heart for any fate; still achieving, still pursuing, learn to labor and to wait.
Success is not measured by what you accomplish, but by the opposition you have encountered, and the courage with which you have maintained the struggle against overwhelming odds.
Love is a gift from God, and as we obey His laws and genuinely learn to serve others, we develop God's love in our lives. Love of God is the means of unlocking divine powers which help us to live worthily and to overcome the world.
Among my most prized possessions are words that I have never spoken.
