Gilbert Magazine and Maurice Baring

We finally got our Gilbert Magazine yesterday and have been enjoying many delightful tidbits from it (I believe Ria will be doing lots of posting on it this week).

I liked Dale Ahlquist's article "The Third Man: Maurice Baring" and wanted to share this delightful little quote from Baring:

People used to conceal their ignorance decently. No longer. This is due to the spread of what is called Education. More people are taught things, but they are taught less. In fact, they are taught hardly anything; in former times they were taught little, but that little they learnt.
