Random quote of the day:

“An understanding heart is everything in a teacher, and cannot be esteemed highly enough. One looks back with appreciation to the brilliant teachers, but with gratitude to those who touched our human feeling. The curriculum is so much necessary raw material, but warmth is the vital element for the growing plant and for the soul of the child.”

—Carl Jung, “The Gifted Child”

Random quote of the day: 

“Young people hate grown-ups for many reasons. One of the reasons is that they feel grown-ups’ minds are fixed and limited. Whenever they meet a man or woman who does not always say what they expect, who tells them novel stories about strange aspects of the world, who throws unexpected lights on what they sadly know as ordinary dull life, who seems as completely alive, sensitive, energetic, and zestful as they themselves, they usually admire him or her.”

—Gilbert Highet, The Art of Teaching
