Today’s Quote

Every piece of marble has a statue in it
 waiting to be released
by a man of sufficient skill
to chip away the unnecessary parts.
Just as the sculptor is to the marble,
so is education to the soul.
It releases it.
For only educated men are free men.
You cannot create a statue
by
smashing the marble with a hammer,
and you cannot by force of arms
release the spirit or the soul of man.

~ Confucius ~
