Anne Sullivan - From the Children category:
-teacher of Helen Keller...
Let the child go and come freely, let him touch real things and combine his impressions for himself, instead of sitting indoors at a little round table, while a sweet-voiced teacher suggests that he build a stone wall with his wooden blocks, or make a rainbow out of strips of coloured paper, or plant straw trees in bead flower-pots. Such teaching fills the mind with artificial associations that must be got rid of, before the child can develop independent ideas out of actual experience. (Anne Sullivan)
Anne Sullivan - From the Language category:
Language grows out of life, out of its needs and experiences... Good work in language presupposes and depends on a real knowledge of things. (Anne Sullivan)
Anne Sullivan - From the Suffering category:
People seldom see the halting and painful steps by which the most insignificant success is achieved. (Anne Sullivan)
