JOURNAL TOPIC: ["You Learn" by Alanis Morissette; "Short Memory" by Midnight Oil]
President Roosevelt visited nonagenarian Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes in the hospital and was surprised to discover the old man reading a book on Greek grammar. "Why are you reading Greek
grammar?" the president asked. "To improve my mind," the justice
replied. Many students rightly want to get out of school, but

graduate. What is the difference between learning and schooling, and
what is the value of learning in your life? How long do you plan to
keep it up?
