The wisdom of Plutarch

"The mind is not a vessel to be filled, but a fire to be kindled."
Plutarch (c. 40-120)

Do you recall watching a child's mind as it grows? Remember the wonder of watching curiosity in motion, as the kid is just soaking up life as it comes? Can you forget the thrill of being there as the youngster learned something funny, or shocking, or wonderful, or just big?

Come on, baby, light your fire.

Richard Dawkins on being open-minded...

Malcolm Forbes on education.....
