If you wish to know what is meant by public education, read Plato'sRepublic. Those who merely judge books by their titles take this for a treatise on politics, but it is the finest treatise on education ever written.~Rousseau, Emile, Book I
* * * Since we are destined to live out our lives in the prison of our minds, our one duty is to furnish it well~Peter Ustinov

Rousseau's quote can be found on page 69.
