I came across this amazing quote quite suddenly when I was looking for some
information in the internet and realized how relevant it is for all of us: children, parents and teachers.
There is never any point in the life of a person when he can sit back and say. “There is nothing more to
learn, I can relax with the comforting thought that the universe around me is an open book. I know it all.”
Education is not just about the subjects that are learnt and taught in school. Becoming educated is
not restricted to being in school and then in college, gathering certificates and feeling proud of
oneself. It is a lifelong exercise that can be unbelievably exciting if only we wish to jump onto
the train of experience and take a trip to every conceivable place on the earth. Now we know that
this cannot be done literally, so how do we manage it, first in school and then as we go on through
the journey of life?
