LIVING AND LEARNING ARE THE SAME.

“People of all walks of life come forth, and offer a class in the things that they know and love: professionals and workgroups offer apprenticeships in their offices and workshops; old people offer to teach whatever their life work and interest has been, specialists offer tutoring in their special subjects. Living and learning are the same. It is not hard to imagine that eventually every third or fourth household will have at least one person in it who is offering a class or training of some kind.”
