Be Warm toward the World

“To achieve an ardent, creative response to life without losing a firm hold on objective knowledge, skills and discipline, a student needs to reverse the usual attitudes. According to Steiner, we must learn to be warm toward the world rather than warm about ourselves, and cool about ourselves rather than cool toward the world.”
