A mind,
once stretched
by a new idea,
never regains
its original dimensions.

Mahatma Gandhi


Education either functions as an instrument which
is used to facilitate integration of the younger generation into the logic of the present system
and bring about conformity
or it becomes the practice of freedom, the means by which men and women deal critically
and creatively with reality and discover how to participate in the transformation of their world.


Paulo Freire


It is a miracle that curiosity survives formal education.

Albert Einstein
