Lady Hester Stanhope Quote

Picture Quote:

Education is all paint: it does not alter the nature of the wood that is under it, it only improves its appearance a little. Why I dislike education so much is that it makes all people alike, until you have examined into them; and it is sometimes so long before you get to see under the varnish!  - Lady Hester Stanhope

When is a revival needed? When carelessness and unconcern keep the people asleep.
