“Education is not the filling of a pail,
but the lighting of a fire.”
— William Butler Yeats
I had never seen this quote from William Butler Yeats, but I love it dearly. It is so descriptive of what I think education is meant to achieve. My own experience, and that of many I know is that the lighting of the fire part comes from self-education, not formal education. All the more reason to keep learning after school is done.
