„The stars had only one task: they taught me how to read.
They taught me I had a language in heaven
and another language on earth.“

„That one story taught me how to read and write because I looked at the picture of that beautiful beast, but I so desperately wanted to read about him too.“

— Ray Bradbury American writer 1920 - 2012
Context: Our education system has gone to hell. It’s my idea from now on to stop spending money educating children who are sixteen years old. We should put all that money down into kindergarten. Young children have to be taught how to read and write. If children went into the first grade knowing how to read and write, we’d be set for the future, wouldn’t we? We must not let them go into the fourth and fifth grades not knowing how to read. So we must put out books with educational pictures, or use comics to teach children how to read. When I was five years old, my aunt gave me a copy of a book of wonderful fairy tales called Once Upon a Time, and the first fairy tale in the book is “Beauty and the Beast.” That one story taught me how to read and write because I looked at the picture of that beautiful beast, but I so desperately wanted to read about him too.

„They are learned by the constant use of the language and cannot be taught in any other fashion.“

— Richard Hamming American mathematician and information theorist 1915 - 1998
Context: Mathematics, being very different from the natural languages, has its corresponding patterns of thought. Learning these patterns is much more important than any particular result... They are learned by the constant use of the language and cannot be taught in any other fashion.
