True Education

I so so love this quote. It hangs in the entrance to the David O. McKay library where I work and I have read + pondered it often the last 3 years. I finally stopped to take a picture of it today so I can remember it forever!

"True education consists not in merely the acquiring of a few facts of science, history, literature, or art but in the development of character. True education awakens the desire to conserve health but keeping the body clean and undefiled. True education trains in self-denial and self-mastery. True education regulates the temper, subdues passion and makes obedience to social laws and moral order a guiding principle of life. It develops reason and inculcates faith in God."
-President David O. McKay.
