Wall of Quotes

Literary experience heals the wound, without undermining the privilege, of individuality. There are mass emotions which heal the wound; but they destroy the privilege.

Reverence for life, as a wonderful and awful gift, which a ruthless child may destroy but never can restore, is a lesson of first importance to the child—

Charlotte Mason

“Let knowledge grow from more to more; But more of reverence in us dwell


“The formation of habits is education, and Education is the formation of habits.”
