for the first day of school (here, finally!)
For every man, education should be a process which continues all his life. We have to abandon, as swiftly as possible, the idea that schooling is something restricted to youth. How can it be, in a world where half the things a man (woman) knows at 20 are no longer true at 40–and half the things he (she) knows at 40 hadn’t been discovered when he was 20?
Arthur C. Clarke (The View from Serendipity)
The best of all things is to learn. Money can be lost or stolen, health and strength may fail, but what you have committed to your mind is yours forever.
