A Quote by Horace Mann on discovery, knowledge, learning, people, philosophy, power, and truth

It is well when the wise and the learned discover new truths; but how much better to diffuse the truths already discovered amongst the multitudes. Every addition to true knowledge is an addition to human power; and while a philosopher is discovering one new truth, millions of truths may be propagated amongst the people. . . . The whole land must be watered with the streams of knowledge.

A Quote by Horace Mann on blindness, colors, future, good, happiness, impulses, obedience, principles, sacrifice, and present

In vain do they talk of happiness who never subdued an impulse in obedience to a principle. He who never sacrificed a present to a future good, or a personal to a general one, can speak of happiness only as the blind speak of color.
