EVERYBOBY THINKS ABOUT LEAVING A BETTER PLANET FOR THE CHILDREN. WHY NOBODY TRIES TO LEAVE BETTER CHILDREN TO THE PLANET? (fedyache@ livejournal.com).

It made me once again wonder what it is "to be good". These are the ideas I've found:

-The word "good" has many meanings. For example, if a man were to shoot his grandmother at a range of five hundred yards, I should call him a good shot, but not necesserily a good man G.K.CHESTERTON.

-The first idea that a child must acquire, in order to be actively disciplined, is that of the difference between good and evil; and the task of the educator lies in seeng that the child does not confound good with immobility, and evil with activity.MARIA MONTESSORI.
