Цитаты Мейер Говард Абрамс

„We are human, and nothing is more interesting to us than humanity.“

—  M. H. Abrams

Cornell Chronicle interview (1999)
Контексте: We are human, and nothing is more interesting to us than humanity. The appeal of literature is that it is so thoroughly a human thing — by, for and about human beings. If you lose that focus, you obviate the source of the power and permanence of literature.

„I think the hardest thing to teach a student is that what he or she puts down on paper is changeable.“

—  M. H. Abrams

People's Education interview (2007)
Контексте: I think the hardest thing to teach a student is that what he or she puts down on paper is changeable. It’s not the final thing, it’s the first thing, which may just be the suggestive, vague identification of something that you have to come back to and rewrite. At first, students tend to freeze at the first effort. The breakthrough comes when they realize that they can make it better — can identify what their purposes were and realize better ways to achieve those purposes. That is the important thing in teaching students to write: not to be frozen in their first effort.

„All students are capable of growth.“

—  M. H. Abrams

People's Education interview (2007)
Контексте: All students are capable of growth. Some of them seem to be very slow to begin with and it’s probably not their fault, nor do I think it’s a matter of genetics. It’s a matter of what has happened in their lives before. They are all capable of growing, but they will not grow unless you interest them, captivate them in some way, and then make them reach out. Then they will finally enjoy reaching out.

„If you don’t set your writing — and teaching — at a level that makes them stretch, they are never going to develop their intellectual muscle.“

—  M. H. Abrams

People's Education interview (2007)
Контексте: Pay attention to your students. Hear what they say, try to find out what their capacities are, what make sense to them. Adapt what you are doing and saying to those capacities, but make your students stretch upward. I think the trick is to adapt to the level of a student, but never rest on that level — always make them reach out. … If a student does not quite get it the first time, he or she will come back and get it later. If you don’t set your writing — and teaching — at a level that makes them stretch, they are never going to develop their intellectual muscle.

„He always violated your expectations. … He was a character.“

„Hard work makes easy reading or, at least, easier reading.“
