If people can be educated to see the lowly side of their own natures, it may be hoped that they will also learn to understand and to love their fellow men better.

My conception of the audience is of a public each member of which is carrying about with him what he thinks is an anxiety, or a hope, or a preoccupation which is his alone and isolates him from mankind; and in this respect at least the function of a play is to reveal him to himself so that he may touch others by virtue of the revelation of his mutuality with them.

The teacher must derive not only the capacity, but the desire, to observe natural phenomena.

The teacher must understand and feel her position of observer: the activity must lie in the phenomenon.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

To me, we must learn to spell the word RESPECT. We must respect the rights and properties of our fellowman.

If you can take that and put it into practice in the community in which you live, then, to me you have won the greatest championship.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Almsgiving tends to perpetuate poverty; aid does away with it once and for all. Almsgiving leaves a man just where he was before. Aid restores him to society as an individual worthy of all respect and not as a man with a grievance. Almsgiving is the generosity of the rich; social aid levels up social inequalities. Charity separates the rich from the poor; aid raises the needy and sets him on the same level with the rich.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
