“When people criticize me for not having any respect for existing structures and institutions, I protest. I say I give institutions and structures and traditions all the respect that I think they deserve. That's usually mighty little, but there are things that I do respect. They have to earn that respect. They have to earn it by serving people. They don't earn it just by age or legality or tradition.”
Myles Horton, We Make the Road by Walking: Conversations on Education and Social Change

“Curiosity is very important I think, and I think too much of education, starting with childhood education, is either designed to kill curiosity or it works out that way anyway.”
Myles Horton, We Make the Road by Walking: Conversations on Education and Social Change

“I think if I had to put a finger on what I consider a good education, a good radical education, it wouldn't be anything about methods or techniques. It would be loving people first.”
Myles Horton, We Make the Road by Walking: Conversations on Education and Social Change
