"Everyone of us knows, if we stop to think about it, that the most valuable lessons we have learned in are not what we 'learned in kindergarten,' nor what we learned in our courses later on. They are, instead, the lessons that we learned when we allowed ourselves the luxury of following through on our interests and our own drives to play, fully and deeply" - Peter Gray, "learning requires freedom", Made by Hand
