    the goal of education “is to enable individuals to continue their education.”
    John Dewey


    Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he will eat for a lifetime.

    The better prepared you are, the less effort you have to do to learn navigation.
    A friend of mine, a lawyer, when he was preparing his yacht skipper exam, had difficulty understanding the set&drift and apparent wind math, because he did not know vector calculus, and had forgotten the basis of trigonometry.
