Transmission Quotations

Art is not a handicraft, it is the transmission of feeling the artist has experienced.
Leo Tolstoy

Most people have no concept of how an automatic transmission works, yet they know how to drive a car. You don't have to study physics to understand the laws of motion to drive a car. You don't have to understand any of this stuff to use Macintosh.
Steve Jobs

Education must, be not only a transmission of culture but also a provider of alternative views of the world and a strengthener of the will to explore them.
Jerome Bruner

Maria Montessori
