On....thinking and

"Let me remind each of us...that education doesn't simply mean that we attend school.  Education means that we learn to think.  Henry Ford put it in words when he said, "An educated man is not one who has trained his mind to remember a few dates in history.  he is one who can accomplish things.  If a man cannot think, he is not an educated man, regardless of how many college degrees he may have attained.  Thinking is the hardest work a man can do, which is probably the reason we have so few thinkers."    Thomas S. Monson "Be Your Best Self,  p. 84
