Learning from Christ

In the development of every human being, diving comes first, then learning. These processes are at first unconscious, simple, natural, but there soon come what is regarded as the inevitable struggle to live and learn.

It cannot be denied that the chief end of general education is to provide means whereby the body may be fed, clothed, housed, and adorned. As this endeavor involves ceaseless toil and much disappointment, it has also seemed necessary to educate thought in such ways as might serve to entertain and enliven the human mind, so as to make the long, hard struggle more endurable.
