The Entire Object of True Education

The Entire Object of True Education
by John Ruskin

The entire object of true education is to make people
not merely to do the right things, but to enjoy them;
not merely industrious, but to love industry;
not merely learned, but to love knowledge;
not merely pure, but to love purity;
not merely just, but to hunger and thirst after justice.

John Ruskin, 1819-1900
English writer, art critic, professor, reformer
