Monday thought of the week: brooks not books

A thought:

Teach your children to bring them in for themselves. Take your text from the brooks, not from the booksellers.

– naturalist Louis Agassiz on how children should collect natural history specimens, quoted in David Starr Jordan‘s Science Sketches (Chicago: A. C. McClurg and Company, 1896), pp. 146-7
