Personal Quote / Scripture / Philosophy of Education

"Literature adds to reality, it does not simply describe it. It enriches the necessary competencies that daily life requires and provides; and in this respect, it irrigates the deserts that our lives have already become."
 
- C. S. Lewis
 
"The mind is not a vessel to be filled, but a fire to be kindled."
 
- Plutarch
 
"For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then we will see face to face."
 
- 1 Corinthians 13:12, NRSV
