I found this quote on a homeschool website.
It has been said that when a childhood is neglected ‘it is like cutting off Spring from the year’. Summer is reached, but the seeds have not been planted, Autumn comes and there is no harvest, Winter comes and there has been no growth; these are the dangers of a Spring lost in school.
This quote can relate to so many things in our lives not just to childhood. If all learning was restricted to school it would be like this too. I want to be a life long learner! I want my children to be life long learners too! If we never chose to grow, to move on in our lives to leave where we are now and go to the next place how boring life would be. I know I would stagnate like a pool of still water, all slimy and smelly.
