Principles of True Education, Work

Motivation Monday

“An education derived chiefly from books leads to superficial thinking.  Practical work, encourages close observation and independent thought.  Rightly performed, it tends to develop that practical wisdom which we call common sense.  It develops ability to plan and execute, strengthens courage and perseverance, and calls for the exercise of tact and skill.”

Education, 220
