A year ago, I ran into a quote from John Ruskin in Consider This by Karen Glass. I wrote it in my commonplace book.
Today, when I started Awakening Wonder by Stephen Turley, I found the quote again and decided to share it with you.
I love the alternating not merely. Education is not merely for knowing and learning and acting in certain ways; it is not merely for the external, utilitarian, behavioral purposes. It isn't outside working inward. No, education is to change you from the inside out.
The interior life ... the affections and desires and the outworking thereof are both important.
