L’éducation anglo-saxonne

En somme, ce programme fut rédigé en s’inspirant de ces principes, qui sont la base de l’éducation anglo-saxonne :

« Toutes les fois qu’une chose vous effraye, faites-la.

« Ne perdez jamais l’occasion de faire un effort possible.

« Ne méprisez aucune fatigue, car il n’y en a pas d’inutile. »

À mettre ces préceptes en pratique, le corps devient solide, l’âme aussi.

Jules Verne, Deux ans de vacances. Loosely translated (my own translation):

In short, this program was formed so as to be inspired by these principles, which are the foundation of English education:

"Whenever something frightens you, do it."

"Never lose a chance to try."

"Do not despise hard work; it is never useless."

By putting these precepts into practice, the body becomes firm, and the mind as well.
