Quote of the Day for January 21

Washington Irving
(1783-1859)

Quote of the Day for January 18

 

As long as learning is connected with earning, as long as certain jobs can only be reached through exams, so long must we take this examination system seriously. If another ladder to employment was contrived, much so-called education would disappear, and no one would be a penny the stupider.

E. M. Forster
(1879-1970)
