Johann Heinrich Pestalozzi’s Advice to Teachers

“Endeavor, first, to broaden your children’s sympathies and, by satisfying their daily needs, to bring love and kindness into such unceasing contact with their impressions and their activity, that these sentiments may be engrafted in their hearts.”

Johann Heinrich Pestalozzi (1746-1827) as Quoted in The Teacher and the Taught (1963)
