A reading from the Gospel of Carse

Chapter 17:9-11

“To be prepared against surprise is to be trained. To be prepared for surprise is to be educated.

“Education discovers an increasing richness in the past, because it sees what is unfinished there. Traininig regards the past as finished and the future as to be finished. Education leads toward a continuing self-discovery; training leads toward a final self-definition.

“Training repeats a completed past in the future. Education continues an unfinished past into the future.”
