Quote from John Holt

I saw this on Our Unschooling Chronicles blog and wanted to share it.

"I believe that we learn best when we, not others, are deciding what we are going to try to learn, and when, and how, and for what reasons or purposes; when we, not others, are in the end choosing the people, materials, and experiences from which and with which we will be learning; when we, not others, are judging how easily or quickly or well we are learning, and when we have learned enough; and above all when we feel the wholeness and openness of the world around us, and our own freedom and power and competence in it" ~John Holt, from What Do I Do Monday

This is exactly how I feel. (I added the bold.)
