Something i came across...
Am in the middle of exams..feeling utterly foolish at having to do something that i don't see any sense in doing.
All i could say was : "How true !! *sigh*"

Sometimes I am a little unkind to all my many friends in education ...
by saying that from the time it learns to talk every child makes a dreadfull nuisance of itself by asking "Why?".
To stop this nuisance society has invented a marvelous system called education which, for the majority of people, brings to an end their desire to ask that question.The few failures are known as scientists.
