Parents, leaders, and educators, we have a mission, a duty to lead children's souls toward the Light which will be their guide and their happiness. In order to illuminate the way that lies before each one of us, once a week we invite you to discover some of the words of certain wisemen and witnesses, measuring their worth by the words of St. Thomas Aquinas: “Do not consider the one who speaks, but whatever good you hear from him, confide it to your memory.” (from The Sixteen Ways to Acquire the Treasure of Knowledge by St. Thomas). Happy reading!
“To organize elementary education is to organize society.”
Edgar QUINET (1803-1875)
Historian, Poet, Philosopher, and Politician
“When you write for children, don’t do so in a specific manner. Think very well, write very well. Let your story be alive, and grand, and wide, and powerful. That’s the unique secret for pleasing your reader. The humblest little book which inspires poetic ideas, which suggests beautiful sentiments, which, at the end of the day, moves the soul, has infinitely more worth for childhood and for youth than all other books stuffed full of practical and mechanical notions. Children, the little and the big, need tales, beautiful tales in prose or in poetry, writings which make them laugh, and cry, and which place them in an enchanted world.”
Anatole FRANCE (1844-1924)
