"It is, in fact, nothing
short of a miracle that the modern methods of instruction have not yet entirely
strangled the holy curiosity of inquiry; for this delicate little plant,
aside from stimulation, stands mainly in need of freedom; without this it
goes to wrack & ruin without fail. It is a very grave mistake to think
that the enjoyment of seeing & searching can be promoted by means of
coercion & a sense of duty. To the contrary, I believe that it would
be possible to rob even a healthy beast of prey of its voraciousness, if
it were possible, with the aid of a whip, to force the beast to devour continuously,
even when not hungry, especially if the food, handed out under such coercion,
were to be selected accordingly." Albert Einstein
