“Someday, I hope that we will all be patriots of our planet and not just of our respective nations.”
Zoe Weil, Most Good, Least Harm: A Simple Principle for a Better World and Meaningful Life

“Reverence is an emotion that we can nurture in our very young children, respect is an attitude that we instill in our children as they become school-agers, and responsibility is an act that we inspire in our children as they grow through the middle years and become adolescents.”
Zoe Weil, Above All, Be Kind: Raising a Humane Child in Challenging Times

“If the traditional Rs (reading, writing, and arithmetic) are the basics that we want our children to master academically, then reverence, respect, and responsibility are the three Rs that our children need to master for the sake of their souls and the health of the world.”
Zoe Weil, Above All, Be Kind: Raising a Humane Child in Challenging Times
