Frances Perkins quotes ~
• “Being a woman has only bothered me in climbing trees.”
• “To one who believes that really good industrial conditions are the hope for a machine civilization, nothing is more heartening than to watch conference methods and education replacing police methods.”
• “In America, public opinion is the leader.”

Johann Heinrich Pestalozzi
b. 2-3-1746; Zurich, Switzerland
d. 1-11-1827

"The child must be educated to be not only a skilled laborer, or an artisan, or a scholar, but a satisfactory husband to his wife, father to his son, citizen of his country. He must be able in his particular place in the community to be self-reliant and to help the others."

Johann Heinrich Pestalozzi was a Swiss educational reformer whose theories laid the foundation of modern elementary education. His masterpiece, Leonard and Gertrude (1891), is an account of the gradual reformation, first of a household, and then of a whole village, by the efforts of a good and devoted woman.

Pestalozzi was influential to Friedrich Froebel, Branson Alcott (father of Louisa May Alcott), Ralph Waldo Emerson, and Herbert Spencer.
