C.D. Warner, et al., comp.  The Library of the World’s Best Literature.
An Anthology in Thirty Volumes.  1917.
 
Of Education
By Joseph Joubert (1754–1824)
 
Translation of Thomas Wentworth Higginson

CHILDREN need models rather than critics.  1
 
  Education should be tender and strict, and not cold and relaxing.  2
 
  In rearing a child, think of its old age.  3
 
  People regard young men as merely students; but I see in them young men also.  4
 
  To teach is to learn twice over.  5
 
  To have shared the mode of education common to all is a great advantage to gifted minds, because they are thus kept in touch with others.  6
