They Wouldn’t Do Anything…
“So many people have said to me, ‘If we didn’t make children do things, they wouldn’t do anything.’
Even worse, they say, ‘If I weren’t made to do things, I wouldn’t do anything.’
It is the creed of a slave.
When people say that terrible thing about themselves, I say, ‘You may believe that, but I don’t believe it. You didn’t feel that way about yourself when you were little. Who taught you to feel that way?’
To a large degree, it was school.”
