parents love their children, they will discover what is right
to property; for the possessive instinct has given property an enormous

As long as we want our children to be powerful, to have bigger and better positions, to become more and more successful, there is no love in our hearts; for the worship of success encourages conflict and misery. To love one’s children is to be in complete communion with them; it is to see that they have the kind of education that will help them to be sensitive, intelligent and integrated.
Education and the Significance of Life, J. Krishnamurti, Chapter 6
