Nr. 25

One of the biggest needs of the school is not to teach people to do things, but to help them to understand what they are doing. Nothing is easier than to create a society of people in motion. Nothing is more difficult than to keep them from going nowhere … The big trick is to get them to think about creating better options for themselves and the next generation. The making of things, useful though they may be, is not as essential as the making of choices.

Norman Cousins, “Saturday Review,” 1978
