I am currently reading an autobiography of Gabriel García Márquez – Vivir para contarla. In it he quotes George Bernard Shaw – ‘Desde muy niño tuve que interrumpir mi educación para ir a la escuela’ ( ‘From childhood I had to interrupt my education to go to school’).
George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950)
That also about sums up my attitude to formal education.
Over the years I tried very hard to shield my views from my sons.
I hope that I was not too successful.
