“It is highly important not only to be learned but to be virtuous.” ~George Washington

“The main hope of a nation lies in the proper education of its youth.” ~Desiderius Erasmus

“I don’t want my children fed or clothed by the state, but I would prefer that to their being educated by the state.” ~Max Victor Belz

“Home is the focus of the work of home schooling parents. Perhaps like no other challenge in life, homeschooling forces us to consider our identity and our roles as mothers and fathers, and it allows us to shape every aspect of our home—its tone, the way it’s decorated, the media we allow to enter it, what we eat and how we eat, how we celebrate, how we laugh, how we rest, and how we prepare for the unexpected.” ~Renee Ellison

“A nation may be ever so civilized and yet lack wisdom.” ~Henry David Thoreau
