Education's purpose is to replace an empty mind with an open one.

Take another look

Look at the world and see what’s actually there. Then take another look and see what could be there.

Look at a problem and see all its difficulties. Then take another look and see its many opportunities.

Look at the people in your life and see their obvious traits and preferences. Then continue looking and interacting, and learn deep truths about who they really are.

Your first impression is necessary, useful, important. But don’t let that first impression be your only impression.

Don’t be so impressed with what you’ve already observed that you fail to see any more. Keep your mind open and take another look.

Take another look, and another. Even when you see clearly and understand well, there’s always more to know.

— Ralph Marston
