Youth Development Study

Famous quotes containing the words youth, development and/or study:

    Colleges, in like manner, have their indispensable office,—to teach elements. But they can only highly serve us, when they aim not to drill, but to create; when they gather from far every ray of various genius to their hospitable halls, and, by the concentrated fires, set the hearts of their youth on flame.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Somehow we have been taught to believe that the experiences of girls and women are not important in the study and understanding of human behavior. If we know men, then we know all of humankind. These prevalent cultural attitudes totally deny the uniqueness of the female experience, limiting the development of girls and women and depriving a needy world of the gifts, talents, and resources our daughters have to offer.
    Jeanne Elium (20th century)

    The study of error is not only in the highest degree prophylactic, but it serves as a stimulating introduction to the study of truth.
    Walter Lippmann (1889–1974)
