Frederic Leighton, "The Music Lesson"
“The mother who teaches her child its first words of the language that throughout life will remain its mother tongue, who sings to the child its first native songs and tells to it the fairy tales of its people, represents ... the earliest spiritual influence on the life of the child. This is of immeasurable importance not only for the child, but for culture.”
