Put the problems before him and let him solve them himself.

“Teach your scholar to observe the phenomena of nature; you will soon rouse his curiosity, but if you would have it grow, do not be in too great a hurry to satisfy this curiosity. Put the problems before him and let him solve them himself. Let him know nothing because you have told him, but because he has learnt it for himself. Let him not be taught science, let him discover it. If ever you substitute authority for reason he will cease to reason; he will be a mere plaything of other people’s thoughts.”

― Jean-Jacques Rousseau

Practice Nonreactive Behavior

“Once you make up your mind to practice nonreactive behavior, almost everything will be affected positively by your response.”

“We can give ourselves a time-out and use the time to look at a situation before we react to it. Then, chances are, we will respond out of careful thought and consideration rather than pure emotion.”

“Remember, the key to staying nonreactive is to take that step back and pick a response that will elicit the best reaction from everyone.”

 

—Joan Lunden from Healthy Living: A Inspirational Guide to Creating balance in Your Life

Life is no brief candle to me…

Life is no brief candle to me. It is a sort of a splendid torch which I have got hold of for the moment, and I want to make it burn as brightly as I can before handing it on to future generations. –George Bernard Shaw
