“The purpose of education should ultimately be the advancement of the species. And for this to actually happen, the world needs the kind of education by means of which character is formed, strength of the mind is increased and the human intellect is expanded beyond its own limits.”

I especially like the part about forming character.
Sadly, I don’t think we’ve had that kind of education since around 1800, at least in the West.
