Side 235 - I soon see that the sentiments of love, trust, gratitude, and obedience must first exist in my heart before I can feel them for God. I must love men, trust them, thank them, and obey them, before I can rise to loving, thanking, trusting, and obeying God.

" This is how it was that these children gradually became so attached to me, some indeed so deeply that they contradicted their parents and friends...
Side 123 - In his speeches, in his explanations of his views, and especially in his fables, he is constantly comparing the education of man, even from the intellectual and moral point of view, to the development and growth of a plant.
