About this Quote

This quote by John Lubbock stresses the importance of instilling a desire to find out in children. He recommends that it is not enough to simply teach kids, but that they must also be provided the motivation to discover. This could be done through supplying a stimulating knowing environment, encouraging interest, and fostering a love of knowledge. By doing this, children will be more likely to take an active interest in their education and be more engaged in the knowing process. Additionally, they will be most likely to develop a long-lasting passion for knowing. Ultimately, Lubbock's quote highlights the significance of offering children with the tools and motivation to find out, rather than simply teaching them.
