Famous quotes containing the word instruction:

    And, fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.
    Bible: New Testament, Ephesians 6:4.

    I have come to believe ... that the stage may do more than teach, that much of our current moral instruction will not endure the test of being cast into a lifelike mold, and when presented in dramatic form will reveal itself as platitudinous and effete. That which may have sounded like righteous teaching when it was remote and wordy will be challenged afresh when it is obliged to simulate life itself.
    Jane Addams (1860–1935)

    A little instruction in the elements of chartography—a little practice in the use of the compass and the spirit level, a topographical map of the town common, an excursion with a road map—would have given me a fat round earth in place of my paper ghost.
    Mary Antin (1881–1949)
