Tuesday’s Quotes – January 12, 2012

“Prejudices, it is well known, are most difficult to eradicate from the heart whose soil has never been loosened or fertilized by education; they grow there, firm as weeds among rocks.”

— Charlotte Brontë

Another recurrent theme for me, education is so important to the survival of our species. Without a broad understanding of of ourselves, our cultures, our histories, and of all of the same for other cultures, we have limited capacity to see much beyond our own narrow focus.

  1. I was struck today by the state of the school in Detroit that was shown on the news as falling in such disrepair that sections of it have been condemned. How can children be expected to learn in such a horrible place. How could the county let it get so rundown?
    I believe very strongly that education is fundamental for our growth and further development as a society…… We need to care.
