The Purpose of Education — Leland Stanford

Liberty Letters Quote of the Day, Senator Leland Standford

All that we can do for you is to place the opportunity within your reach. Remember that life is, above all, practical; that you are here to fit yourself for a useful career; also, that learning should not only make you wise in the arts and sciences, but should fully develop your moral and religious natures.
