„Meek — as the meek that shall inherit earth,
Pure — as the pure in heart that shall see God.“

„In a world of change, the learners shall inherit the earth, while the learned shall find themselves perfectly suited for a world that no longer exists.“

—  Eric Hoffer American philosopher 1902 - 1983
Context: The central task of education is to implant a will and a facility for learning; it should produce not learned but learning people. The truly human society is a learning society, where grandparents, parents, and children are students together. In a time of drastic change it is the learners who inherit the future. The learned usually find themselves equipped to live in a world that no longer exists. Section 32 <!-- also quoted in On Becoming a Leader (1989) by Warren G. Bennis, p. 189 -->
