Quote of the Day


My Frye Google Alert alerted me to a blog entry that reads in part, “this reminds me of something one of the more learned people Canada has ever produced, Northrop Frye, once wrote: education doesn’t make bad people good; it makes them more dangerous.”

Thanks to Bob Denham we have the actual quote from “Wisdom and Knowledge“: “Education makes a bad man more dangerous; it does not make him a better man.”  (CW 5, 308)
