    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“The central task of education is to implant a will and facility for learning; it should produce not learned but learning people. The truly human society is a learning society, where grandparents, parents, and children are students together.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“It is the stretched soul that makes music, and souls are stretched by the pull of opposites /opposite bents, tastes, yearnings, loyalties. Where there is no polarity /where energies flow smoothly in one direction /there will be much doing but no music.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“Man is eminently a storyteller. His search for a purpose, a cause, an ideal, a mission and the like is largely a search for a plot and a pattern in the development of his life story -- a story that is basically without meaning or pattern.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“To our real, naked selves there is not a thing on earth or in heaven worth dying for. It is only when we see ourselves as actors in a staged (and therefore unreal) performance that death loses its frightfulness and finality and becomes an act of make-believe and a theatrical gesture. It is one of the main tasks of a real leader to mask the grim reality of dying and killing by evoking in his followers the illusion that they are participating in a grandiose spectacle, a solemn or lighthearted dramatic performance.”
