– David Hume (1711-1776)
|The purpose of school should be to prepare kids for the rest of their lives, but too often what kids need to be prepared for is surviving the school day itself.|
|You must know nothing before you can learn something, and be empty before you can be filled. Is not the emptiness of the bowl what makes it useful?|
|Learning is not to be tacked to the mind, but we must fuse and blend them together, not merely giving the mind a slight tincture, but a thorough and perfect dye. And if we perceive no evident change and improvement, it would be better to leave it alone: learning is a dangerous weapon, and apt to wound its master if it be wielded by a feeble hand, and by one not well acquainted with its use.|

– Richard Feynman (1918-1988)
|A learning experience is one of those things that says, ‘You know that thing you just did? Don’t do that.’
– Douglas Adams (1952-2001)
|Knowledge is indivisible. When people grow wise in one direction, they are sure to make it easier for themselves to grow wise in other directions as well. On the other hand, when they split up knowledge, concentrate on their own field, and scorn and ignore other fields, they grow less wise — even in their own field.
– Isaac Asimov (1920-1992)
