people are going to learn the principles of democracy the
dictates of truth and the teachings of science. Superstition
must go. Let them worship as they will, every man can follow
his own conscience provided it does not interfere with sane
reason or bid him act against the liberty of his fellow men.
Kemal Ataturk # Democracy,
experienced leaders like these, who have stepped forward and
committed to the critical task of transforming urban school
systems, offer new promise to raising student achievement
for every student in our urban centers. We are excited to
train this new class with the skills necessary to effectively
manage an urban school district.

- Do not
believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not
believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored
by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found
written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything
merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not
believe in traditions because they have been handed down for
many generations. But after observation and analysis, when
you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive
to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and
live up to it.
Buddha # Belief,
this triple truth to all: A generous heart, kind speech, and
a life of service and compassion are the things which renew
Buddha # Teaching,
must be the teacher of democracy, not the advertiser of the
consumer society. It is unrealistic for the rest of the world
to reach the American living standard.

- All teachers
are good for someone. There are some teachers out there who
I cannot stand, for whatever reason. I cannot even bear the
sound of one teacher's voice. Yet they are wonderful teachers
for other people. They just are not for me.
Hay # Important,
- I have
never understood the importance of having children memorize
battle dates. It seems like such a waste of mental energy.
Instead, we could teach them important subjects such as How
the Mind Works, How to Handle Finances, How to Invest Money
for Financial Security, How to be a Parent, How to Create
Good Relationships, and How to Create and Maintain Self-Esteem
and Self-Worth. Can you imagine what a whole generation of
adults would be like if they had been taught these subjects
in school along with their regular curriculum?
Hay # Children,
- The time
has come to educate people, to cease all quarrels in the name
of religion, culture, countries, different political or economic
systems. Fighting is useless. Suicide.
Lama # Time,
has failed in a very serious way to convey the most important
lesson science can teach: skepticism.
Suzuki # Education,
is a very crucial time in the evolution of humanity toward
a much higher consciousness, and some teachings will support
that progress while others will not.
Twyman # Progress,
why it was me, so that every individual can accept himself
or herself as an emissary of light and see that there is no
need to give their power away to any teacher or guru.
Twyman # Self,
- If words
of command are not clear and distinct, if orders are not thoroughly
understood, the general is to blame. But if his orders are
clear, and the soldiers nevertheless disobey, then it is the
fault of their officers.
