Charlotte Mason Quotes

Charlotte Mason Quote: “Education is an atmosphere, a discipline, a life.”
Charlotte Mason Quote: “Thought breeds thought; children familiar with great thoughts take as naturally to thinking for themselves as the well-nourished body takes to growing; and we must bear in mind that growth, physical, intellectual, moral, spiritual, is the sole end of education.”
Charlotte Mason Quote: “The mother who takes pains to endow her children with good habits secures for herself smooth and easy days.”
Charlotte Mason Quote: “An observant child should be put in the way of things worth observing.”

Charlotte Mason Quote: “Every day, every hour, the parents are either passively or actively forming those habits in their children upon which, more than upon anything else, future character and conduct depend...”
Charlotte Mason Quote: “There is no education but self-education.”
Charlotte Mason Quote: “Education, like faith, is the evidence of things not seen.”
Charlotte Mason Quote: “Let children feed on the good, the excellent, the great! Don’t get in their way with little lectures, facts, and guided tours!”

Charlotte Mason Quote: “Never be within doors when you can rightly be without.”
Charlotte Mason Quote: “We are all meant to be naturalists, each in his own degree, and it is inexcusable to live in a world so full of the marvels of plant and animal life and to care for none of these things.”
Charlotte Mason Quote: “Education is a life; that life is sustained on ideas; ideas are of spiritual origin, and that we get them chiefly as we convey them to one another. The duty of parents is to sustain a child’s inner life with ideas as they sustain his body with food.”
Charlotte Mason Quote: “The indwelling of Christ is a thought particularly fit for the children, because their large faith does not stumble at the mystery, their imagination leaps readily to the marvel, that the King Himself should inhabit a little child’s heart.”
Charlotte Mason Quote: “For the mind is capable of dealing with only one kind of food; it lives, grows and is nourished upon ideas only; mere information is to it as a meal of sawdust to the body; there are no organs for the assimilation of the one more than of the other.”
Charlotte Mason Quote: “Give your child a single valuable idea, and you have done more for his education than if you had laid upon his mind the burden of bushels of information.”
Charlotte Mason Quote: “Therefore, teaching, talk and tale, however lucid or fascinating, effect nothing until self-activity be set up; that is, self-education is the only possible education; the rest is mere veneer laid on the surface of a child’s nature.”
Charlotte Mason Quote: “In this time of extraordinary pressure, educational and social, perhaps a mother’s first duty to her children is to secure for them a quiet and growing time, a full six years of passive receptive life, the waking part of it for the most part spent out in the fresh air.”
Charlotte Mason Quote: “Wise and purposeful letting alone is the best part of education.”
Charlotte Mason Quote: “We attempt to define a person, the most commonplace person we know, but he will not submit to bounds; some unexpected beauty of nature breaks out; we find he is not what we thought, and begin to suspect that every person exceeds our power of measurement.”
Charlotte Mason Quote: “Of all the joyous motives of school life, the love of knowledge is the only abiding one; the only one which determines the scale, so to speak, upon which the person will hereafter live.”
Charlotte Mason Quote: “The question is not, – how much does the youth know? when he has finished his education – but how much does he care? and about how many orders of things does he care? In fact, how large is the room in which he finds his feet set? and, therefore, how full is the life he has before him?”

Charlotte Mason Quote: “The most common and the monstrous defect in the education of the day is that children fail to acquire the habit of reading.”

Charlotte Mason Quote: “So much for the right books; the right use of them is another matter. The children must enjoy the book. The ideas it holds must each make that sudden, delightful impact upon their minds, must cause that intellectual stir, which mark the inception of an idea.”
Charlotte Mason Quote: “The formation of habits is education, and education is the formation of habits.”
Charlotte Mason Quote: “The peculiar value of geography lies in its fitness to nourish the mind with ideas and furnish the imagination with pictures.”
Charlotte Mason Quote: “Of the three sorts of knowledge proper to a child, the knowledge of God, of man, and of the universe, – the knowledge of God ranks first in importance, is indispensable, and most happy-making.”
Charlotte Mason Quote: “Every walk should offer some knotty problem for the children to think out-“Why does that leaf float on the water, and this pebble sink?” and so on.”
Charlotte Mason Quote: “Do not let the endless succession of small things crowd great ideals out of sight and out of mind.”
Charlotte Mason Quote: “One more thing is of vital importance; children must have books, living books; the best are not too good for them; anything less than the best is not good enough; and if it is needful to exercise economy, let go everything that belongs to soft and luxurious living before letting go the duty of supplying the books, and the frequent changes of books, which are necessary for the constant stimulation of the child’s intellectual life.”
Charlotte Mason Quote: “And all the time we have books, books teeming with ideas fresh from the minds of thinkers upon every subject to which we can wish to introduce children.”
Charlotte Mason Quote: “Therefore, the selection of their first lesson-books is a matter of grave importance, because it rests with these to give children the idea that knowledge is supremely attractive and that reading is delightful. Once.”
Charlotte Mason Quote: “Every common miracle which the child sees with his own eyes makes of him for the moment another Newton.”

Charlotte Mason Quote: “The mother who takes pains to endow her children with good habits secures for herself smooth and easy days; while she who lets their habits take care of themselves has a weary life of endless friction with the children.”
Charlotte Mason Quote: “To bring the human race, family by family, child by child, out of the savage and inhuman desolation where He is not, into the light and warmth and comfort of the presence of God, is, no doubt, the chief thing we have to do in the world.”
