Observation, and not old age, brings wisdom.
Men are born ignorant, not stupid. They are made stupid by education.
The educational system is living a lie. The lie is that every child can be anything he or she wants to be. No one really believes it, but we approach education’s problems as if we did. We are phobic about saying out loud that children differ in their ability to learn the things that schools teach.
