This therefore is Mathematics:
She reminds you of the invisible
forms of the soul;
She gives life to her own
discoveries;
She awakens the mind and purifies
the intellect;
She brings light to our intrinsic
ideas;
She abolishes oblivion and ignorance
which
are ours by birth.

Il s'agit de voir
Tellment plus clair
De faire avec les choses
Comme la lumière.

He was appalled by the examination system, when it
was explained to him; he could not imagine a greater
deterrent to the natural wish to learn than this
pattern of cramming in information and disgorging it
at demand. At first he refused to give any tests or
grades, but this upset the University administrators
so badly that, not wishing to be discourteous to his
hosts, he gave in. He asked his students to write a
paper on any problem in physics that interested them,
and told them that he would give them all the highest
mark, so that the bureaucrats would have something to
write on their forms and lists. To his surprise a good
many students came to him to complain. They wanted him
to set the problems, to ask the right questions; they
did not want to think about questions, but to write
down the answers they had learned. And some of them
objected strongly to his giving everyone the same
mark. How could the diligent students be distinguished
from the dull ones? What was the good in working hard?
If no competitive distinctions were to be made, one
might as well do nothing.
