“In teaching, there should be no distinction of classes.”
“By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is the noblest; second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest.”
“When you see a worthy person, endeavor to emulate him. When you see an unworthy person, then examine your inner self.”
“The essence of knowledge is, having it, to apply it; not having it, to confess your ignorance.”
“Education breeds confidence. Confidence breeds hope. Hope breeds peace.”
