Changed line 1 from:
->"The question in education is whether it, too, can be an end in itself and not merely a means to some other end a better job, a more attractive mate or even, that holiest of contemporary grails, a more productive economy. The answer has to be yes. The search for understanding is as much a defining characteristic of humanity as is the search for beauty. It is, indeed, far more of a defining characteristic than the search for food or for a mate. Anybody who denies its intrinsic value also denies what makes us most fully human."[^[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Martin_Wolf | Wolf, Martin]] (2007) [[http://www.ft.com/cms/s/0/0627480c-b230-11db-a79f-0000779e2340.html#axzz205sNhXU9 | "Education is a worthwhile end in itself,"]] The Financial Times, February 2007.^]
