Sir Ken Robinson

Ted Talk

“We have to be careful now that we use this gift [of being human] wisely... and the only way we'll do that is by seeing our creative capacities for the richness they are and seeing our children for the hope that they are. Our task is to educate their whole being so that they can face this future. And by the way, we may not see this future, but they will. And our job is to help them make something of it.”
