Elizabeth Harrison

  • Who are the men and women that are lifting the world upward and onward? Are they not those who encourage more than they criticise? who do more than they undo?

  • To refuse to pass judgment upon a subject not yet understood is one of the surest evidences of the cultured mind.

    • Elizabeth Harrison,
    • with Belle Woodson, The Kindergarten Building Gifts ()
  • Great and necessary as are law and authority, if human society is to develop its higher possibilities, law and authority are but rounds of the ladder by means of which mankind climbs to higher levels.

Elizabeth Harrison, U.S. educator

(1849 - 1929)
