"Hm, not quite what I expected. So far it's mostly defining a subset of the language (syntax diagrams, included) rather than providing a discussion of the nuances of the language and the patterns that should be used." May 30, 2010 08:19PM

Super provocative and containing some very different ideas. Gatto makes the distinction between schooling and education very clear and thinks we can have the latter only when we remove the former. I was a bit put off by his strong libertarianism and ...more

“Money alone isn't enough to bring happiness . . . happiness [is] when you're actually truly ok with losing everything you have.”
Tony Hsieh, Delivering Happiness: A Path to Profits, Passion, and Purpose

“Insanity is doing the same thing, over and over again, but expecting different results.”
Narcotics Anonymous

Theodore Roosevelt
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
Theodore Roosevelt
