To Repair the Ruins

I found this quote in Consider This, by Karen Glass, then had a little fun researching it.

The end then of learning is to repair the ruins of our first parents by regaining to know God aright, and out of that knowledge to love him, to imitate him, to be like him, as we may the nearest by possessing our souls of true virtue, which being united to the heavenly grace of faith makes up the highest perfection.. ~ John Milton, “Of Education” (from a Tractate on Education, addressed to education reformer Samuel Hartlib)
