Quote by Cesar Chavez
Real education should consist of drawing the goodness and the best out of our own students. What better books can there be than the book of humanity?
This quote emphasizes the importance of nurturing and developing the inherent goodness and potential of individuals through education. It suggests that the best way to educate is by understanding and appreciating the diverse experiences, perspectives, and virtues of humanity. By "drawing" from the "book of humanity," it suggests that by immersing ourselves in the rich narratives and teachings of humanity, we can broaden our knowledge, foster empathy, and build meaningful connections with others. Ultimately, this quote advocates for an education system that values individuality, compassion, and a deep understanding of our shared human experiences.
He who sleeps here, when dying, mistaking the approach of death for the return of health, whispered with his latest breath, I am better now. Let us believe, in spite of doubts and dogmas, of fears and tears, that these dear words are true of all the countless dead.The record of a generous life runs like a vine around the memory of our dead, and every sweet, unselfish act is now a perfumed flower.
