“The method of liberal education is the liberal arts, and the result of liberal education is discipline in those arts. The liberal artist learns to read, write, speak, listen, understand, and think. He learns to reckon, measure, and manipulate matter, quantity, and motion in order to predict, produce, and exchange. As we live in the tradition, whether we know it or not, so we are all liberal artists, whether we know it other not. We all practice the liberal arts, well or badly, all the time every day…. The question, in short, is whether he will be a poor liberal artist or a good one.”

–Robert M. Hutchins (The Great Conversation: The Substance of a Liberal Education. pp.4-5)
