10 ruminations on education from Frank Lloyd Wright


When pressed to name an architect, the one most of us can dig up without a moment’s hesitation is Frank Lloyd Wright, the wisdom of whom has been collected in the convenient pocket-sized book called Frank Lloyd Wright on Architecture, Nature, and the Human Spirit: A Collection of Quotations.

To honor what would have been his 145th birthday yesterday, Maria Popova of Brain Pickings selected ten great quotes on education and learning , an excellent reminder that summer break is really just a time to learn outside the box.

”True study is a form of experience.” (1958)

”The present education system is the trampling of the herd.” (1956)

”Cultivate the poet. The poet is the unacknowledged legislator of this universe and the sooner we knock under to that the better. Get Emerson’s essay on the American scholar and read it once a year.” (1957)
