Ernest J. Gaines quotes ~
• “I have no more to say except this: We must live with our own conscience.”
• “Nietzsche said without music, life would be a mistake. To me, without books, life would be a mistake.”
• “I tried to decide just how I should respond to them. Whether I should act like the teacher that I was, or like the nigger that I was supposed to be.”
• “Sometimes you got to hurt something to help something. Sometimes you have to plow under one thing in order for something else to grow.”
• “Anytime a child is born, the old people look in his face and ask him if he's the One.”
• “Why is it that, as a culture, we are more comfortable seeing two men holding guns than holding hands?”
• “I hope when I die, they won't put on my tombstone, ‘He wrote Miss Jane Pittman.’ Put anything else, but don't put just that.”
• “Everything's been said, but it needs saying again.”

Caleb Gattegno
b. 11-11-1911; Alexandria, Egypt
d. 7-28-1988; Paris, France

Caleb Gattegno, author and thinker about education is best known for his “science of education” based on the awareness of awareness, and that teaching should be subordinated to learning, requiring that as an absolute prerequisite teachers must understand how people learn. He also created many learning materials; for example he worked closely with Georges Cuisenaire in the development and promotion of Cuisenaire rods.

Caleb Gattengo quote ~
• “We shall endow a certain number . . . of humans with one attribute: awareness. This is a most primitive reality. Every reader will know at once that he or she has it. Indeed, awarness is that property of one's self which ascertains that one is, at this moment, reading these words.”
