GENERAL EDUCATION
1.

What relationship is shown between education and invention?

A Study made a number of years ago said the more education a man has, the less likely he is to be an inventor.
Now, the reason for that is quite simple. From the time the boy or girl starts in school, he or she is examined three or four
times a year, and of course, it is very, very disastrous if he/she fails. An inventor fails all the time and it is triumph if he
succeeds once. Consequently, if education is an inhibition to invention, it is due entirely to the form by which we rate
things and not because of any intellectual differential.
I can take any group of young people any place, and teach them to be inventors, if I can get them to throw off the
hazard of being afraid to fail. You fail because your ideas are not right. You should not be afraid to fail, but you should
learn to fail intelligently. By that I mean, when you fail, find out why you failed, and each time you fail it will bring you
nearer to the goal.

Music Can Heal Mental Wounds but Only in the Right Hands

1 Human beings have known about the healing properties of music since Biblical times according to the Old
Testament for example David soother King Sauls aching brow by reaching for his harp.
