” <…> A freeman ought not to be a slave in the acquisition of knowledge of any kind. Bodily exercise, when compulsory, does no harm to the body: but knowledge which is acquired under compulsion obtains no hold on the mind. <…> Then, my good friend, I said, do not use compulsion, but let early education be a sort of amusement; you will then be better able to find out the natural bent.”
Very true indeed!
