The best way to approach school so children can get somewhere in life is to keep it unserious and keep it a game!
“You want to know what sensation about living you ought to have: It’s the same sensation with which you used to play cowboy and Indian. You also know that it isn’t real when you’re playing cowboys and Indians.’
“That, by the way, is on the upper strata of ecstasy. It really becomes ecstasy when you know you have to pretend that it’s real so that it can be real. You’re really in command of the situation then, and you can have a good time! It’s fun. One of the biggest control mechanisms there are is: You’ve got to take this seriously. You’ve really got to be serious about this. If you’re serious enough about this hm-hm-hm! you’ll get somewhere in life.’
“The surest way to get nowhere in life is to be serious about it!”
