The Highest Things

From James Schall's On the Unseriousness of Human Affairs:

"All education begins and ends in our souls, in our view of the highest things, and in the courage we have to pursue them."

"I think in general that you can get a terrible education in the best and most expensive universities and that in fact most students do."

"I believe it is practically impossible to obtain an education in the highest things in most existing universities. I do not say that especially loudly, and it is not necessarily a cry of despair. But the first thing one must notice about today's schools, if he is to begin at all, is that students have little real confrontation with the highest things, including the truths of revelation."
