What is school for?


Back to school everybody!

Productivity!

And what is school for?


"Grades are an illusion... passion and insight are a reality"

"Your work is more important than your congruence to an answer key."

"Persistence in the face of a sceptical authority figure is priceless, and yet we undermine it."

"Fitting in is a short-term strategy that gets you nowhere.
Standing out is a long-term strategy that takes guts and produces results."

"If you care enough about your work, to be willing to be criticised for it, then you have done a good day's work."

All the quotes and the manifesto for "Stop Stealing Dreams" posted here

Added this to my online shrine to Seth Godin - a bunch of my favourite quotes & links collected here
