„"You will be very welcome," answered Dorothy, "for you will help to keep away the other wild beasts. It seems to me they must be more cowardly than you are if they allow you to scare them so easily."
"They really are," said the Lion, "but that doesn't make me any braver, and as long as I know myself to be a coward I shall be unhappy."“

„And if you help them where they are at a stand, it will more endear you to them than any chargeable toys that you shall buy for them.“

—  John Locke, book Some Thoughts Concerning Education

Sec. 130
Some Thoughts Concerning Education (1693)
Context: "How then shall they have the play-games you allow them, if none must be bought for them?" I answer, they should make them themselves, or at least endeavour it, and set themselves about it.... And if you help them where they are at a stand, it will more endear you to them than any chargeable toys that you shall buy for them.

„I will help you approach if you approach, and to keep away if you keep away.“

—  Antonio Porchia Italian Argentinian poet 1885 - 1968

Te ayudaré a venir si vienes y a no venir si no vienes.
