on being educated

"No man who worships education has got the best out of education; no man who sacrifices everything to education is even educated." ...... "What is wrong is a neglect of principle; and the principle is that without a gentle contempt for education, no gentleman's education is complete."

The Superstition of School by G. K. Chesterton (1874 - 1936)
