Education is a kind of continuing dialogue and a dialogue assumes different points of view.

Education is not to reform students or amuse them or to make them expert technicians. It is to unsettle their minds widen their horizons inflame their intellects teach them to think straight if possible.

My idea of education is to unsettle the minds of the young and inflame their intellects.

The object of education is to prepare the young to educate themselves throughout their lives.
