Sophie von LaRoche

“Examine the measure of your children's capacities, and leave none of them uncultivated. However modest you may be in dress and other expenditures for a person of your rank, consecrate all you have to your children's education.”
“Never raise your hand menacingly, but only in a friendly gesture!”
Sophie von LaRoche, German novelist
