Education is the Spark that Lights Up a Mind

“Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.” ― William Butler Yeats The quote, “Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.” is misattributed to W.B. Yeats and is said to have originated from a saying of Plutarch that goes like “The mind is not a vessel to be filled but a fire to be kindled.” However, this doesn’t rob the quote of its profound meaning. The purpose of education is not to add anything from outside or to dispense degrees that enable a student to earn a living. Besides these external outcomes, the purpose of education is to instill the spirits of humanity and virtues to young mind so that they can grow up to become not just responsible citizen of the world but also leading lights that illuminates the humanity around them. Education should not be restricted just to dispense the curriculum in a mechanical fashion but must ignite minds. Article Source: https://bit.ly/EducationLightsMind
