Thou GHT PRo vo kiNG

Any piece of knowledge which the pupil has himself acquired, any problem which he has himself solved, becomes, by virtue of the conquest, much more thoroughly his than it could else be. The preliminary activity of mind which his success implies, the concentration of thought necessary to it, and the excitement consequent on his triumph, conspire to register the facts in his memory in a way that no mere information heard from a teacher, or read in a schoolbook, can be registered.
— Herbert Spencer said that

Both quotes are so interesting, Sherri, in that…we recognize their truth (even if we don’t think it applies to us). Gotta love the accompanying artwork. 🙂
