“You can’t cross the sea merely by standing and staring at the water”
“Educate our people, so that they may be able to solve their own problems”
The first principle of true teaching is that nothing can be taught.
The second principle is that the mind has to be consulted in its own growth. The idea of hammering the child into the shape desired by the parent or teacher is a barbarous and ignorant superstition.
The third principle of education is to work from the near to the far, from that which is to that which shall be.
