Every uneducated person is a caricature of himself.

Friedrich Schlegel, 1798

What a profound thought.

Without education, you’re an outline with distorted features.  Your worst is accentuated without the tempering impact of learning other perspectives, exploring other values, or discovering alternative possibilities.

Growth of personality happens when you seek wisdom and knowledge.
