A writer-editor-teacher’s quote of the week #62

“All that education can do in any case is to teach us to make good use of what we are; if we are nothing to begin with, no amount of education can do us any good.”

– from “Education, Past and Present” by John Gould Fletcher, in I’ll Take My Stand: The South and the Agrarian Tradition, 1977 edition
