gyan lab The arts personalize knowledge and visions, demanding an ever growing development of the mind and spirit. We do our children and our country ill service by not supporting them adequately in our schools. — Shirley Trusty Corey, arts-in-education specialist, educator
gyan lab Education, in its largest sense, is a thing of great scope and extent.

gyan lab Since a time has come, Mademoiselle, when the severe laws of men no longer prevent women from applying themselves to the sciences and other disciplines, it seems to me that those of us who can, should use this long-craved freedom to study and to let men see how greatly they wronged us when depriving us of its honour and advantages. And if any woman becomes so proficient as to be able to write down her thoughts, let her do so and not despise the honour but rather flaunt it instead of fine clothes, necklaces, and rings. For these may be considered ours only by use, whereas the honor of being educated is ours entirely. — Louise Labé, feminist, poet, linguist, soldier
