Quote of the Day

"Academies that are founded at public expense are instituted not so much to cultivate men's natural abilities as to restrain them" --Spinoza
I would add that it hardly matters whether they are publicly or privately funded. There is, alas, a real distinction between "schooling" and "education."

Thanks to @pareidoliac on twitter for this quote, who re-tweeted it from @BFuniv.

And yes, I'm on twitter now: @zephyrusnyc.
