I believe that this educational process has two sides – one psychological and one sociological; and that neither can be subordinated to the other or neglected without evil results following.

I believe that the school, as an institution, should simplify existing social life; should reduce it, as it were, to an embryonic form.

I believe that the image is the great instrument of instruction. I believe that the prophesy the stage upon which he is about to enter.
