“The function of a child is to live his/her own life, not the life that his/her anxious parents think he/she should live, nor a life according to the purpose of the educators who thinks they knows best”
A.S. Neill

“If the emotions are free the intellect will look after itself”
A.S. Neill

“Cehennem korkusuna, polis korkusuna, ceza korkusuna dayalı bir iyilik, iyilik sayılmaz — bu korkaklıktan başka bir şey değildir. Ödül, övgü ya da cennet beklentisine bağlı iyilik, rüşvetçiliğe girer. Günümüz ahlâkı çocukları korkaklaştırmaktadır çünkü kendisi yaşamdan korkutmaktadır. Sıkıdüzenden geçirilen öğrencilerin ‘iyiliği’ aslında işte budur.”
A.S. Neill, Özgürlük Okulu
