Could Be

3/13/2016

“If you treat an individual as he is,

he will remain how he is. But if you

treat him as if he were what he ought

to be and could be, he will become

what he ought to be and could be.”

– Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

  3. I love this quote – It reminds me to keep setting goals to work toward and raise my game.
    It got me thinking though – if we follow this philosophy with our children – will they become what they want to become or would they be trying to live up to our expectations of them rather than following their own ambitions?…. Thanks for sharing!
