“The idea of teaching a child everything—from colors… to clouds… to music—teaching in the sense of opening up the mind. Not teaching, opening up the mind–which is what education is about. All education is just about making people curious. That’s all it’s about. And, to get a child to be curious about everything would be an unbearable thrill to me—or, a bearable thrill.”– Stephen Sondheim
