“Alice: Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here? The Cheshire Cat: That depends a good deal on where you want to get to. Alice: I don't much care where. The Cheshire Cat: Then it doesn't much matter which way you go. Alice: ...So long as I get somewhere. The Cheshire Cat: Oh, you're sure to do that, if only you walk long enough.
"The ultimate goal of the educational system is to shift to the individual the burden of pursuing his education. This will not be a widely shared pursuit until we get over our odd conviction that education is what goes on in school buildings and nowhere else." - John W. Gardner
