Jean Piaget
b. 8-9-1896; Neuchâtel, Switzerland
d. 9-16-1980; Geneva

Jean Piaget was a psychologist and philosopher best known for his pedagogical studies and theory of cognitive development.

Jean Piaget quote ~
• “The principle goal of education is to create men who are capable of doing new things, not simply of repeating what other generations have done - men who are creative, inventive and discoverers.”
• “There is an adult in every child and a child in every adult.”
• “When the child comes to draw things as he sees them, it will be precisely because he has given up taking isolated objects in and for themselves and has begun to construct real systems of relations which take account of the true perspective in which things are connected.”
• “There are in existence two distinct ideas of justice. We say that an award is unjust when it penalizes the innocent, rewards the guilty, or when, in general, it fails to be meted out in exact proportion to the merit or guilt in question. On the other hand, we say that a division is unjust when it favors some at the expense of others. In this second adaptation of the term, the idea of justice implies only the idea of equality. In the first acceptation of the term, the notion of justice is inseparable from that of the reward and punishment, and is defined by the correlation between acts and their retribution.”

Jean-Francois Pilatre de Rozier
b. 3-30-1754; Metz, France
d. 6-15-1785; Wimille

Jean-Francois Pilatre de Rozier, a chemistry and physics teacher, became, along with his flight companion Pierre Romain, the first known victims of an air crash, in their attempt to cross the English Channel.

“In France, a chemist named Pilatre de Rozier tested the flammability of hydrogen by gulping a mouthful and blowing across an open flame, proving at a stroke that hydrogen is indeed explosively combustible and that eyebrows are not necessarily a permanent feature of one's face.”
— Bill Bryson - A Short History of Nearly Everything

Plato, a Classical Greek philosopher, mathematician, writer of philosophical dialogues, founded the Academy in Athens, the first institution of higher learning in the Western world.

Plato quotes ~
• “The direction in which education starts a man will determine his future in life.”
• “No man should bring children into the world who is unwilling to persevere to the end in their nature and education.”
• “The most important part of education is proper training in the nursery.”
• “For good nurture and education implant good constitutions.”
• “Music is the movement of sound to reach the soul for the education of its virtue.”
• “Do not train a child to learn by force or harshness; but direct them to it by what amuses their minds, so that you may be better able to discover with accuracy the peculiar bent of the genius of each.”
