Featured Quote[edit]

"That man, I think, has had a liberal education who has been so trained in his youth that
his body is the ready servant of his will, and does with ease and pleasure all the work
that, as a mechanism, it is capable of; whose intellect is a clear, cold, logic engine,
with all its parts of equal strength, and in smooth working order; ready, like a steam
engine, to be turned to any kind of work, and spin the gossamers as well as force the
anchors of the mind; whose mind is stored with a knowledge of the great and fundamental
truths of Nature and of the laws of her operations; one who, no stunted ascetic, is full
of life and fire, but knows passions are trained to come to heel by a vigorous will, the
servant of a tender conscience; who has learned to love all beauty, whether of Nature or of
art, to hate all vileness, and to respect others as himself.  Such a one and no other, I
conceive, has had a liberal education, for he is in harmony with nature. He will make the
best of her and she of him."

        - Thomas H. Huxley.  "A Liberal Education; and Where to Find It," 1868.
