Instruction Quotations

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

Voltaire

But the power of instruction is seldom of much efficacy, except in those happy dispositions where it is almost superfluous.
Edward Gibbon

There is in general good reason to suppose that in several respects the gods could all benefit from instruction by us human beings. We humans are - more humane.
Friedrich Nietzsche
