"They were not going to school to learn where they were, let alone the pleasures and the pains of being there, or what ought to be said there. You couldn't learn those things in a school. They went to school, apparently, to learn to say over and over again, regardless of where they were, what had already been said too often. They learned to have a very high opinion of God and a very low opinion of His works--although they could tell you this world had been made by God Himself.
What they didn't see was that it is beautiful and some of the greatest beauties are the briefest."
Wendell Berry, Jayber Crow
