Instruction Quotations

My countrymen, I have given proofs that I am one most anxious for liberties for our country, and I am still desirous of them. But I place as a prior condition the education of the people, that by means of instruction and industry our country may have an individuality of its own and make itself worthy of these liberties.
Jose Rizal

The tigers of wrath are wiser than the horses of instruction.
William Blake

If the impulse to daring and bravery is too fierce and violent, stay it with guidance and instruction.
Xun Zi

Children require guidance and sympathy far more than instruction.
Anne Sullivan

If it's all instruction, you get annoyed with it and bored, and you stop reading. If it's all entertainment, you read it quite quickly, your heart going pitty-pat, pitty-pat. But when you finish, that's it. You're not going to think about it much afterward, apart from the odd nightmare. You're not going to read that book again.
Margaret Atwood
