The preschool years are not the time to teach reading or math. We should use life's most impressionable years to teach life's most important lesson: how to be happy!

-Richard and Linda Eyre, in "Teaching Children Joy"

Children are given to us - on loan - for a very short period of time. They come to us like flower seeds, with no pictures on the cover, and no guarantees. We don't know what they will look like, be like, act like, or have the potential to become.

-Katherine Kersey, in "Sensitive Parenting"

It is not what is poured into a student but what is planted that counts.

I have never let my schooling interfere with my education.
-Mark Twain
