Famous quotes containing the word instruction:

    Much of the pressure contemporary parents feel with respect to dressing children in designer clothes, teaching young children academics, and giving them instruction in sports derives directly from our need to use our children to impress others with our economic surplus. We find “good” rather than real reasons for letting our children go along with the crowd.
    David Elkind (20th century)

    There is in general good reason to suppose that in several respects the gods could all benefit from instruction by us human beings. We humans are—more humane.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    Everything from airplanes to kitchen blenders—and even chopsticks—comes with an instruction manual. Children, despite all their complexity, do not.
    Lawrence Kutner (20th century)
