"The function of the historian is neither to love the past nor to emancipate himself from the present, but to master and understand it as the key to the understanding of the present." E.H. Carr


The Purpose of Education: "To give to every citizen the information he needs for the transaction of his own business; to enable him to calculate for himself, and to express and preserve his ideas, his contracts and accounts in writing; to improve, by reading, his morals and faculties; to understand his duties to his neighbors and country, and to discharge with competence the functions confided to him by either; to know his rights; to exercise with order and justice those he retains, to choose with discretion the fiduciary of those he delegates; and to notice their conduct with diligence, with candor and judgment; and in general, to observe with intelligence and faithfulness all the social relations under which he shall be placed." 

-  Thomas Jefferson, Report for University of Virginia, 1818.
