School = Leisure


"...the history of the word attests the fact: for leisure in Greek is skole, and in Latin scola, the English "School". The word used to designate the place where we educate and teach is derived from a word which means "leisure". "School" does not, properly speaking, mean school, but leisure."
-Josef Pieper in Leisure: The Basis of Culture

Just a little fun quote for those about to return to the classroom...Enjoy the Leisure! :)
