The Virtual Vitamin

A Daily Dose of Insight and Common Sense

Don Your Day Pack

Formal instruction warps the senses, such as an image refracted in water.  But much may be gleaned from another’s perspective.  There is a difference between being taught and learning, group think and being able to think for one’s self.  Learning must be viewed through the clarity of personal responsibility.  Good students are shaped in homes, not classrooms.  They understand earning their education, without the expectation of entitlement.  To respect the value of anything, one must be willing to work for it.  Students must grasp the importance of truth and have a personal quest for it.   The mind is independent; knowledge is a solo hike.
