The School Motto

Let knowledge lead to wisdom, and wisdom to emancipation. The School motto echoes what many thinkers of many lands and many ages have said in many different ways: knowledge is not enough, and mere knowledge may dazzle and make one blind. Learning must lead to wisdom which gives one the capacity to see things in a proper perspective, and enables one to grow out of oneself. It is through wisdom that emancipation comes. Very few can attain it, but it is this straining after a goal, knowing that it will probably always be beyond one’s reach, that makes a man, a man.
