“One more thing is of vital importance; children must have books, living books; the best are not too good for them; anything less than the best is not good enough; and if it is needful to exercise economy, let go everything that belongs to soft and luxurious living before letting go the duty of supplying the books, and the frequent changes of books, which are necessary for the constant stimulation of the child's intellectual life.” ― Charlotte Mason
“The most common and the monstrous defect in the education of the day is that children fail to acquire the habit of reading.”
Charlotte Mason
“A child gets moral notions from the fairy-tales he delights in, as do his elders from tale and verse.” — Charlotte Mason
“The teacher who allows his scholars the freedom of the city of books is at liberty to be their guide, philosopher and friend; and is no longer the mere instrument of forcible intellectual feeding.” — Charlotte Mason

It is for those who enjoy working with young children and find adults rewarding to work with as well.” – John Holt
