September 10, 2010

first day of school 004

Plants are shaped by cultivation and men by education. .. We are born weak, we need strength; we are born totally unprovided, we need aid; we are born stupid, we need judgment. Everything we do not have at our birth and which we need when we are grown is given us by education. — Jean Jacques Rousseau (Emile, Or On Education*)
