A Quote by Anne Sullivan

“Love is…
Something like the clouds that were in the sky before the sun came out.
You cannot touch the clouds, you know…
but you feel the rain and know how glad the flowers and the thirsty earth are
to have it after a hot day.
You cannot touch love either…
But you feel the sweetness that it pours
into everything.”

A Quote by Anne Sullivan on beginning, children, education, and kindness

I am beginning to suspect all elaborate and special systems of education. They seem to me to be built upon the supposition that every child is a kind of idiot who must be taught to think.
