Education and the New IVorld
The old world must and will come to an end, but it is
to come in the building of a new world and not by a sud
den cataclysm. There will be simply a revision or a suc
cession of revisions until the old has become new.
Education is the process of conquering ones environ
ment. The widening of that circle should end only with
life. Every day should the world be made new by some
new acquisition of truth.
