Chesterton on Education

Yet another reason I love G.K. Chesterton:
"Education is implication. It is not the things you say which children respect; when you say things, they very commonly laugh and do the opposite. It is the things you assume that really sink into them. It is the things you forget even to teach that they learn."
(The philosophy and history of education, by the way, is something that does not get enough attention or study.)
