"...when their physical strength starts to wane and they are too old to play a public part in the community or to serve in the militia, they should be allowed to roam free and graze at will, and to concentrate on philosophy, with everything else being incidental."
-- Plato

"...to those who are so earnestly demanding that education shall be made practical, What is practical? Let us answer. Brains are practical. The most practical thing on earth is brain power - the power to see, reason and understand. And so that education is most practical which most develops brain power - power to perceive, judge and act."
-- John Milton Gregory
