Author Quotes

The needs of the society determine the work of the school... the supreme need of society is good citizenship... ideal citizenship demands of the individual the highest degree of knowledge, power and skill.

That nation shall endure forever whose people have entered
the paths of self-control and world-wide sympathy.

The end and aim of all education is the development of character.
