A.S. Neill

"The function of a child is to live his/her own life, not the life of his/her anxious parents he/she should live, nor a life according to the purpose of the educators who thinks they know best."" I would rather have Summerhill produce a happy street sweeper than a neurotic prime minister.""The absence of fear is the finest thing that can happen to a child." "Sit still and approve of all the things that a child disapproves of in himself."
