Education

I thought I’d share a great quote from Nelson Mandela’s Long Walk to Freedom.

“Education is the great engine of personal development.  It is through education that the daughter of a peasant can become a doctor, that the son of a mineworker can become the head of the mine, that a child of farmworkers can become the president of a great nation.  It is what we make out of what we have, not what we are given, that separates one person from another.”  -Nelson Mandela (pg. 168)
