Saturday's Quote

"They (children) must be left alone, left to themselves a great deal, to take in what they can of the beauty of the heavens; for of the evils of modern education few are worse than this - that the perpetual cackle of his elders leaves the poor child not a moment of time, nor an inch of space, wherein to wonder - and grow."
