Quote the Raven…

raven_r11“Education without values, as useful as it is, seems rather to make man a more clever devil.”

– C.S. Lewis


  1. Interesting choice. My personal opinion is that there’s an abundance of what those who tout them call “values” in the world, and a paucity of education. The real problem, in other words, isn’t a lack of values but a lack of education.

  2. Glad to have you chime in with your thoughts again Ben, these quotes are meant to be thought provoking (though I’ll probably throw in some fun ones) and I’m glad it was able to generate a measure of discussion. As for myself, while I’m with Lewis here, I’m also of the belief that we could do a lot less ‘touting’ of values and education both, and should instead be anxiously engaged in their common sense APPLICATION.
