Wise words 

Brian Micklethwait over at Samizdata shares some educational wisdom with us.

I like to read the biographies of high achievers. I am struck by how often Life starts extremely early for such people, perhaps because of a family catastrophe or because of a catastrophically hopeless father who dumps all his responsibilities onto our hero, aged ten. By the time they reach the age of those daytime TV watching graduates, they are at least ten years ahead of them, career-wise, and often more like thirty.
