Education is a process of discovery and invention

Education is not the sale of parcels of knowledge, or pouring knowledge from one vessel to another. It is helping others to acquire the ability to obtain knowledge on their own; it is presenting them with the key to the storehouse of knowledge. It is not simply appropriating the intellectual properties that others have discovered, without effort on one's own part; it is a process of discovery and invention."
