Learn How to Think and not What to Think

I wonder if we have ever asked ourselves what education means.

Why do we go to school, why do we learn various subjects, why do we pass examinations and compete with each other for better grades?

What does this so called education mean…. Why do we go through the struggle to be educated?

Is it merely in order to pass some examinations and get a job? Or is it the function of education to prepare us while we are young to understand the whole process of Life?…

Surely, education has no meaning unless it helps you to understand the vast expanse of life with all its subtleties, with its extraordinary beauty, its sorrows and joys.

True Education is to Learn How to Think and not What to Think…

– J Krishnamurti
