The Last Lesson

“Perhaps the most valuable result
of all education is the ability to make yourself
do the thing you have to do
when it ought to be done,
whether you like it or not;
it is the first lesson
that ought to be learned;
and however early
a man’s training begins,
it is probably the last lesson
that he learns thoroughly.”

Thomas Huxley via Life 101 (Peter McWilliams)
