Doris Lessing on education

“Ideally, what should be said to every child, repeatedly, throughout his or her school life is something like this: ‘You are in the process of being indoctrinated. We have not yet evolved a system of education that is not a system of indoctrination. We are sorry, but it is the best we can do.'”

Maurice Maeterlinck on environmental limits

“…when the phenomenon shall have trespassed beyond certain limits, she will beckon to life or to death – which arrives, re-establishes order, and unconcernedly marks out the path afresh.”
