A Quote by Henry Brooks Adams on teacher, student, education, energy, training, effort, tools, and models

At the utmost, the active-minded young man should ask of his teacher only mastery of his tools. The young man himself, the subject of education, is a certain form of energy; the object to be gained is economy of his force; the training is partly the clearing away of obstacles, partly the direct application of effort. Once acquired, the tools and models may be thrown away.

Henry Adams (1838 - 1918)
