Famous quotes containing the words elkind and/or david:

    Young children learn in a different manner from that of older children and adults, yet we can teach them many things if we adapt our materials and mode of instruction to their level of ability. But we miseducate young children when we assume that their learning abilities are comparable to those of older children and that they can be taught with materials and with the same instructional procedures appropriate to school-age children.
    —David Elkind (20th century)

    The whole book by noble gestures and inclinations renders many words unnecessary.
    —Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
