Quote #4

I really do intend to get to some quotes from Knowing God but I keep coming across such good quotes in my other reading.  In our Gileskirk Christendom Introduction there are these two quotes:

"The most important fact about the subject of education is that there is no such thing.  Education is not a subject, and it does not deal in subjects.  It is instead the transfer of a way of life."
~G.K. Chesterton

"Somehow, our whole approach to teaching and learning has gone awry.... Although we often succeed in teaching our pupils subjects, we fail lamentably on the whole in teaching them how to think.  They learn everything except the art of learning."

Want to take a guess who that quote is from?  I'll post the answer soon.

Happy learning....

Annina, please feel free to guess. I've failed to post the author but will wait a day or two for your very educated guess.
