Chapter 3: Know Your Students
Among all men, whether of the upper or lower orders, the differences are eternal and irreconcilable, between one individual and another, born under absolutely the same circumstances. One man is made of agate, another of oak; one of slate, another of clay. The education of the first is polishing; of the second, seasoning; of the third, rending; of the fourth, moulding. It is of no use to season the agate; it is vain to try and polish the slate; but both are fitted, by the qualities they possess, for services in which they may be honoured. (Ruskin, 1917: 198)
