Charlotte M Mason Quotes

"Let children alone... the education of habit is successful in so far as it enables the mother to let her children alone, not teasing them with perpetual commands and directions - a running fire of Do and Dont ; but letting them go their own way and grow, having first secured that they will go the right way and grow to fruitful purpose."

"Being home schooled is awesome because you can make your own schedule, so as far as time management, its up to you how much you get done and when you get it done. Its all got to get done; how you do it is up to you. You need a lot of self-discipline, but luckily, I have it."

PW Thirion Quotes

"Imprisonment is the form of punishment which may detrimentally affect not only the offender but also his family and his employment and because of its duration it can seldom be kept from becoming general public knowledge. It [...] can have a lasting demoralising effect on the character and personality of the offender. The loss of liberty, tedium, regimentation [...] which prison life entails, have a greater potentiality than a whipping for destroying the offenders self-esteem and the integrity of his character and for changing, for the worse, his way of life."

Quotes About Personal Convictions

"It requires something more than personal experience to gain a philosophy or point of view from any specific event. It is the quality of our response to the event and our capacity to enter into the lives of others that help us to make their lives and experiences our own. In my own case my convictions have derived and developed from events in the lives of others as well as from my own experience. What I have seen meted out to others by authority and repression, economic and political, transcends anything I myself may have endured." - Author: Emma Goldman

Quotes About Red Nails

"A baby almost killed me as I walked to work one morning. By passing beneath a bus shelters roof at the ordained moment I lived to tell my tale. With strangers surrounding me I looked at what remained. Laoughter from heaven made us lift our eyes skyward. The babys mother lowered her arms and leaned out her window. Without applause her audience drifted off, seeking crumbs in the gutters of this city of God. Xerox shingles covered the shelters remaining glass pane, and the largest read: Want to be crucified. Have own nails. Leave message on machine.The fringe of numbers along the ads hem had been stripped away. My shoes crunched glass underfoot; my skirt clung to my legs as I continued down the street. November dawns seventy-degree bath made my hair lose its set. Mother above appeared ready to take her own bow; I too, as ever, flew on alone." - Author: Jack Womack

Quotes About Quranic Mothers

"ISOLATION DOES STRANGE THINGS to a persons mind. This is true for any social creature, human or otherwise. Monkeys taken from their mothers at birth, placed alone in stainless-steel chambers, and deprived of contact with other animals ("human and subhuman" alike, according to the researchers), develop irreversible mental illnesses. As one of the experts in this field, Harry Harlow, put it: "sufficiently severe and enduring social isolation reduces these animals to a social-emotional level in which the primary social responsiveness is fear." - Author: Derrick Jensen
