About education

The best thing for being sad,"
replied Merlin, beginning to puff and
blow, "is to learn something. That's the
only thing that never fails. You may grow
old and trembling in your anatomies,
you may lie awake at night listening to
the disorder of your veins, you may miss
your only love, you may see the world
about you devastated by evil lunatics, or
know your honour trampled in the
sewers of baser minds. There is only one
thing for it then — to learn. Learn why
the world wags and what wags it. That is
the only thing which the mind can never
exhaust, never alienate, never be
tortured by, never fear or distrust, and
never dream of regretting. Learning is
the only thing for you. Look what a lot
of things there are to learn.
T.H. White
