“ I believe that all education proceeds by the participation of the individual in the social

consciousness of the race. This process begins unconsciously almost at birth, and is continually

shaping the individual’s powers, saturating his consciousness, forming his habits, training his

ideas, and arousing his feelings and emotions.

   Through this unconscious education the individual gradually comes to share in the intellectual

and moral resources which humanity has succeeded in getting together. He becomes an inheritor of

the funded capital of civilization.

   The most formal and technical education in the world cannot safely depart from this general

process. It can only organize it or differentiate it in some particular direction. School is an

institution free of the concrete demands made by existing standards in the profession.

   Teaching programs should be open, constantly evolving and never bound by fixed opinions. ”

I believe that education is a process of living, and not a preparation for future living.

It is important for society that school be a place for experimentation.

Students should not be given irrevocable truths or absolute values, but instead should be guided

in developing their abilities to independently search for knowledge and personal values.

It’s often the way you think about people that often determines their behaviors;

you have to change the way that people see themselves before they can change their behaviors. ”

I asked the Professor about the secret of success; two words.

The Professor said: “Right decisions.”

Then I asked how I can make the right decision; one word.

The Professor said: “Experience.”

I asked what is the secret of experience.

The Professor said: “Wrong decisions.”

Everything is okay in the end; if it’s not okay, it’s not the end.
