“The educated person should be the kindest person, the finest person, the most honorable and the most considerate — all education which does not soften your heart and smooth your spirit — all education which you keep to yourself and for yourself is waste, just waste. Learning is a torch which must be passed on and on, quickly to light the world.”
MARY E. WOOLLEY
