A Quote by John Ruskin on authority, children, discretion, dreams, duty, education, government, order, and people

I hold it for indisputable, that the first duty of a State is to see that every child born therein shall be well housed, clothed, fed, and educated, till it attain years of discretion. But in order to the effecting this the Government must have an authority over the people of which we now do not so much as dream.

John Ruskin (1819 - 1900)
