Mahatma Gandhi – To call woman the weaker sex

Share this quote:
Mahatma GandhiTo call woman the weaker sex is a libel; it is man’s injustice to woman. If by strength is meant brute strength, then, indeed, is woman less brute than man. If by strength is meant moral power, then woman is immeasurably man’s superior. Has she not greater intuition, is she not more self-sacrificing, has she not greater powers of endurance, has she not greater courage? Without her, man could not be. If nonviolence is the law of our being, the future is with woman. Who can make a more effective appeal to the heart than woman?

Mahatma Gandhi   (1869-1948)

David Hume – Celibacy, fasting, penance. . .

Share this quote:
David HumeCelibacy, fasting, penance, mortification, self-denial, humility, silence, solitude and the whole train of monkish virtues…Stupify the understanding and harden the heart, obscure the fancy and sour the temper…A gloomy hair-brained enthusiast, after his death, may have a place in the calendar, but will scarcely ever be admitted, when alive, into intimacy and society, except by those who are as delirious and dismal as himself.

David Hume   (1711-1776)

Carl Jung – An understanding heart is everything in a teacher

Share this quote:
Carl JungAn understanding heart is everything in a teacher, and cannot be esteemed highly enough. One looks back with appreciation to the brilliant teachers, but with gratitude to those who touched our human feeling. The curriculum is so much necessary raw material, but warmth is the vital element for the growing plant and for the soul of the child.

Carl Jung   (1875-1961)
