“Education is the great engine of  personal development. It is through education that  the daughter of a peasant can become a doctor, that the son of a mine worker can become the head of the mine, that a child of farm workers can become the president

of a great nation. It is what we make out of what we have, not what we are given, that separates one person from another.”
