Education: 'Draw out what God left in'

When I lived in Vrindavan I asked an elderly and learned man: what is the meaning of education? In prompt response he said 'to bring out the sanskara'. His few words revolutionised my personal views at the time and remain deep seated in my thoughts today. This afternoon I came across a similar statement from the business library: “People don't change that much. Instead of trying to put in what God left out, try drawing out what God left in!” Curt Coffman. Isn't it important, important to recognise what's there in another, to see the potential and to assist in some capacity bring it out and into effect.
