Quote #19

We give him little text-books, mere compendiums of facts, which he is to learn off and say and produce at an examination; or we give him various knowledge in the form of warm diluents, prepared by his teacher with perhaps some grains of living thought to the gallon.  And all the time we have books, books teaming with ideas fresh from the minds of thinkers upon every subject to which we can wish to introduce children.
