Quotable: Simón Rodríguez on the importance of questioning everything

“Enseñe los niños a ser preguntones, para que, pidiendo el por qué, de lo que se les mande hacer, se acostumbren a obedecer… a la razón, no a la autoridad, como los limitados, ni a la costumbre, como los estúpidos.”

–Simón Rodríguez

(Teach children to ask lots of questions, so that, in asking the reason why they are being told to do things, they become accustomed to obeying…reason, not authority, like the limited, nor custom, like the stupid.)
