Till now man has been up against Nature; from now on he will be up against his own nature.

Dennis Gabor

The sun, with all those planets revolving around it and dependent on it, can still ripen a bunch of grapes as if it had nothing else in the universe to do.

Galileo Galilei

We cannot teach people anything; we can only help them discover it within themselves.

Good ones, I particularly like the ones by Galileo.
If our education system would work more on teaching children how to learn, rather than fill them full of "facts", they would be so much more educated.

I like these, Don. If our only obstacle now is our own nature, we sure have our work cut out for us.

Three great quotes, but man always has been his own worst enemy and now more than ever pulls the rug right out from under himself.
I don't think that kids learn as much as we did by rote, but they are so much distracted that they don't want to spend the time to learn by themselves.
