"With every line, Freire's writings emanate a spirit, a sense of urgency, and an intensity which is as rare as it is refreshing. He was a passionate pedagogue and activist--someone who too the theory/practice nexus seriously, someone who was engaged in struggle all his life, someone who was much more than an armchair academic."
