Books and school are great for learning but there is no substitute for life and living to provide a real education.

The pleasure of reading is the greatest solitude.

If you only read the books that everyone else is reading, you can only think what everyone else is thinking. That’s the world of hicks and slobs. Real people would be ashamed of themselves doing that. Haven’t you noticed, Watanabe? You and I are the only real ones in the dorm. The other guys are crap.
