The Task of the Modern Educator

"The task of the modern educator is not to cut down jungles, but to irrigate deserts.  The right defence against false sentiments is to inculcate with just sentiments.  By starving the sensibility of our pupils we only make them easier prey to the propagandist when he comes.  For famished nature will be avenged and a hard heart is no infallible protection against a soft head."
