I have been wondering if it could have been Nee. None of these quotes seem like the exact one I was thinking of, but they all certainly make the case for Lee's feelings about women being waaaay less than men.

So, anything in the Nee stuff?

I remember in one of Nee's books, he expounded on parenting. I wonder what his creds were for that -- he wasn't a parent, and had no training that I know of. Anyway, I remember it said that in order to keep our kids from being puffed up, when they have an accomplishment we should tell them "there are very many children who can do that as well as you can" (obviously, not a direct quote, it is from memory, but it made quite an impression on me.)

Remember Deep Thoughts by Jack Handey? SNL? This one always reminded me of Nee's advice about kids:

Children need encouragement. If a kid gets an answer right, tell him it was a lucky guess. That way he develops a good, lucky feeling.

Maybe it was Nee -----
