“Whatever an education is,

  • it should make you a unique individual, not a conformist;
  • it should furnish you with an original spirit with which to tackle the big challenges.
  • It should allow you to find values which will be your road map through life;
  • it should make you spiritually rich, a person who loves whatever you are doing, wherever you are, whomever you are with;
  • it should teach you what is important, how to live and how to die.”

– John Taylor Gatto
