St. John Bosco

“Every education teaches a philosophy; if not by dogma then by suggestion, by implication, by atmosphere. Every part of that education has a connection with every other part. If it does not all combine to convey some general view of life, it is not education at all” (G.K. Chesterton, The Common Man)

Really, very interesting, thanks for commenting.

BTW, did you see Raul in Moscow, I think he was drunk because when he got off the plane he started talking about the Soviet Union and violated protocol by going in the wrong direction when he disembarked!!!!
