    EDUCATION

    A young boy once approached his father to ask, "Dad, why does the wind blow?", to which the father responded, "I don't know, son." "Dad, where do the clouds come from?" "I'm not sure, son." "Dad, what makes a rainbow?" "No idea, son." "Dad, do you mind me asking you all these questions.?" "Not at all, son. How else are you going to learn?"

    Without education, we are in a horrible and deadly danger of taking educated people seriously. 

    G.K. Chesterton.


    Bok's Law: If you think education is expensive, try ignorance.


    From the day we entered the ninth-grade health class, one blackboard was covered with the names and locations of the major bones and muscles of the human body. The diagram stayed on the board throughout the term, although the teacher never referred to it. The day of the final exam, we came to class to find the board wiped clean. The sole test question was: "Name and locate every major bone and muscle in the human body." The class protested in unison: "We never studied that!" "That's no excuse," said the teacher. "The information was there for months." After we struggled with the test for a while, he collected the papers and tore them up. "Always remember," he told us, "that education is more than just learning what you are told." 

    Judith Swanson, in Reader's Digest.


    Do you know the difference between education and experience? Education is when you read the fine print; experience is what you get when you don't. 

    Pete Seeger, folk singer, quoted in Rolling Stone.
