„You cannot make children learn music or anything else without to some degree converting them into will-less adults.“

—  A.S. Neill, книга Summerhill

Источник: Summerhill (1960), p. 12
Контексте: You cannot make children learn music or anything else without to some degree converting them into will-less adults. You fashion them into accepters of the status quo – a good thing for a society that needs obedient sitters at dreary desks, standers in shops, mechanical catchers of the 8:30 suburban train – a society, in short, that is carried on the shabby shoulders of the scared little man – the scared-to-death conformist.
