Herbert Spencer 1883 "Education"
"That which our school courses leave almost entirely out, we thus find to be that which most nearly concerns the business of life. All our industries would cease were it not for that information which men begin to acquire as they best may after their education is said to be finished." -- Herbert Spencer, "Education," p. 54 D. Appleton & Co. New York, 1883
