Quotes - Apr, 1999 Issue

"...American children, whom we have liked to think of as the healthiest in the world, are actually lagging behind the young people of many other countries in their fitness.  The readiest explanation is that many of our children aren't getting much exercise any more."
- Dr. Benjamin Spock, 1964
"Human nature is not a machine to be built after a model, and set to do exactly the work prescribed for it, but a tree, which requires to grow and develop itself on all sides, according to the tendency of the inward forces which make it a living thing."
- John Stuart Mill
"They [parenting experts] said to respect Eric as an equal, but the more respect we showed him, the less he showed us.  They said families should be democratic, the the more democratic we were with Eric, the more of a tyrant he became.  They said it was wrong to control children, but the less control we exercise, the more out of control he became.  The more insecure Eric was, the more crazy we all were."
- John Rosemond, 1998
"Without education, we are in a horrible and deadly danger of taking educated people seriously."
- G.K. Chesterton
