Education in the formal sense is only a part of society’s larger task of abetting the individual’s intellectual, emotional and moral growth. What we must search for is a conception of perpetual self-discovery, perpetual reshaping to realize one’s best self, to be the person one could be. It includes not only the intellect but the emotions, character and personality.  It involves adaptability, creativeness and vitality. And it involves moral and spiritual growth.

John Gardiner, “Excellence,” 1961
