He can learn them from books. The value of an education is a liberal arts college is not learning of many facts but the training of the mind to think something that cannot be learned from textbooks.

Not Just A mere inclusion of such oaths But B-Schools Must walk the talk. 18. 2. Success=Fat Package? Break The Stereotype: The whole object of education is...to develop the mind.
