„Interest can produce learning on a scale compared to fear as a nuclear explosion to a firecracker.“

—  Stanley Kubrick American film director, screenwriter, producer, cinematographer and editor 1928 - 1999
Context: I think the big mistake in schools is trying to teach children anything, and by using fear as the basic motivation. Fear of getting failing grades, fear of not staying with your class, etc. Interest can produce learning on a scale compared to fear as a nuclear explosion to a firecracker. Quoted in Stanley Kubrick at Look Magazine (2013) by Phillipe Mather, p. 46

„When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.“

—  Clive Staples Lewis Christian apologist, novelist, and Medievalist 1898 - 1963
Context: Critics who treat adult as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence. And in childhood and adolescence they are, in moderation, healthy symptoms. Young things ought to want to grow. But to carry on into middle life or even into early manhood this concern about being adult is a mark of really arrested development. When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up. "On Three Ways of Writing for Children" (1952) — in Of Other Worlds: Essays and Stories (1967), p. 25
