"It is not enough to teach men a specialty. This becomes something of usable machines but not valid individuals. Individual To be valid, the man must feel strongly that to which it can aspire. Has to receive a lively sense of the beautiful and of the morally good. Otherwise it looks more like a well-trained dog than a harmoniously developed body.

Summary of an interview on educational problems,

Learn to learn can be a right flight for the own life.
On these changing times, beside the conflicts of men,
this year starts with strong storms and low temperature
at some countries of Northern Hemisphere
and there is heat waves and windy storms
on some countries of Southern Hemisphere.
Perhaps still time to take care of our nature,
listening to the wind and reading all the natural elements:
skies, air, clouds and stars, rivers, seas and oceans,
volcanoes and cracks, deserts and glaciers,
mountains, valleys, and meadows, cliffs and beaches
rocks, plants and animals, everything.
Here is the song of the apple tree than speaks of the wind.
The wind tells us a lot information about the weather.
When the men don't have equipment or media,
Just put a finger in the air and see where the wind is blowing.
You can ask your grandparents explain it,
and sharing these little big treasures.
A dance in the world of ideas for searching the great energies
maybe is the key for transform the opposites on complementary.
You could choose your background for your trip through life if you learn to learn.
Good luck to all in this new year that we undertake.
