Short Link to this Quote:
She believes teaching done with “purity of intention” – meaning solely for the benefit of students, not personal gain or ego – and without favoring wealthy pupils over poor ones, has the power to “draw down the graces of God.”
Bourgeoys seems to be saying that by serving all children equally with compassion, dedication and without ulterior motives, educators can find fulfillment and fulfill an important social role.
Her quote suggests that treating each student’s mind and character as equally worthy of cultivation, regardless of background, is what makes teaching a virtuous act aligned with spiritual principles of fairness, empathy and service.
