Entry for September 11, 2006

Some more quotes.

From John Holt in "Learning All the Time," on pg. 20, "Figuring out what you don't know or aren't sure of is the greatest intellectual skill of all."

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind. -- Dr. Seuss

My education was the liberty I had to read indiscriminately and all the time, with my eyes hanging out. —Dylan Thomas [I often feel that I have been reading too long and my eyes _are_ hanging out. :)]

And on the subject of education:
Traditional forms of instruction in America, even before the Revolution, had three specific purposes:
To make good people
To make good citizens
And to make each student find some particular talents to develop to the maximum.
