Paulo Freire: affirmative love in education

“The final virtue, if possible, is the ability to love students, in spite of everything. I don’t mean a kind of soft or sweet love, but on the contrary a very affirmative love, a love which accepts, a love for students which pushes us to go beyond, which makes us more and more responsible for our task.”

-Paulo Freire, Reading the World and Reading the Word: An Interview with Paulo Freire (1985).
