The mind is not a vessel to be filled but a fire to be kindled. (Plutarch, ancient Greek philosopher)
Some might think that the goal of education is to fill the minds of students with learning that is almost inexhaustible. Of course, we do want to give them the information and tools they need to grow and prosper. But, perhaps we should concentrate more on inspiring learners by showing them how to apply their knowledge for their own benefit and their community’s.
And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds. (Hebrew 10:24)
