Ruskin says that education does not mean teaching people. What they do not know
but teaching them to behave in the way they are not behaving ? We pay so much
attention to the development of the body and mind, but little time is spent on moral
and spiritual aspects of life. It should be made available to the young in the shape of
sugar-coated quinine pills sweet to taste but after assimilation an effective cure to the
ills of both the body and soul. There are skills to nurture the human soul. Politeness
is one of them. One may be polite and gentle with very little money in his pocket.
Politeness has been described as the art of showing by external signs the internal
regard we have for others. It is the humblest of fine arts, yet it is so useful and so
pleasure giving that it might almost be ranked among the humanities. Politeness will
bring you success. With success come pleasure and popularity.
Questions :
58. How should education help people ?
59. Why should moral and spiritual values be given as ‘sugar coated quinine pills’ ?
23 14-E

60. How will you describe politeness ?
61. Why should politeness be ranked among the humanities ?
62. What does a polite person gain ?
63. Pick out a word opposite in meaning to ‘proud’ from the passage.
14-E 24

Ruskin says that education does not mean teaching people. What they do not know
but teaching them to behave in the way they are not behaving ? We pay so much
attention to the development of the body and mind, but little time is spent on moral
and spiritual aspects of life. It should be made available to the young in the shape of
sugar-coated quinine pills sweet to taste but after assimilation an effective cure to the
ills of both the body and soul. There are skills to nurture the human soul. Politeness
is one of them. One may be polite and gentle with very little money in his pocket.
Politeness has been described as the art of showing by external signs the internal
regard we have for others. It is the humblest of fine arts, yet it is so useful and so
pleasure giving that it might almost be ranked among the humanities. Politeness will
bring you success. With success come pleasure and popularity.
