A humanizing education is the path through which men and women can become conscious about their presence in the world.
I believe that every human being is potentially capable, within his “limits,” of fully “realizing” his potentialities; that his being cheated and choked of it, is infinitely the ghastliest, commonest, and most inclusive of all the crimes of which the human world can accuse itself; and that the discovery and use of “consciousness,” which has also been and is our deadliest enemy and deceiver, is also the source and guide of all hope and cure, and the only one.
