Never help a child with a task at which he feels he can succeed.
Free the child's potential, and you will transform him into the world.
We teachers can only help the work going on, as servants wait upon a master.
To aid life, leaving it free, however, that is the basic task of the educator.
One test of the correctness of educational procedure is the happiness of the child.
The first idea the child must acquire is that of the difference between good and evil.
Establishing lasting peace is the work of education; all politics can do is keep us out of war.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
The only language men ever speak perfectly is the one they learn in babyhood, when no one can teach them anything!
The task of the educator lies in seeing that the child does not confound good with immobility and evil with activity.
