    Description:
       "Into you, you hellish river, men's children are thrown, to learn such things for a price, and a great ceremony is made when they display what they have learned in the forum, the very place where the teachers' state fees, superadded to the private fees, are posted. And the river, pounding against these rocks, roars out: 'This is the reward for learning literature, for acquiring the eloquence needed to plead persuasively and argue well..." Saint Augustine, Saint Augustines' Childhood; Confessiones Book One. Composes between 389-390 CE

      interesting. I was just having a conversation the other day stating that not everything learned is taught. I like the message manifested, and as usual your intro made a big impact on the developmental ideaology of the main interpretation.

      Riiiight. is that the kind of thoughts that teachers have? I don't get internalized being there twice. Its an odd little, mysterious piece you've got here.

      I found the "description" of this more fascinating than the poem itself...it reminds me of something that I saw about the writings that were kept OUT of the bible (there were apparently a group of men of authority and power that collectively hand-picked and decided what they wanted the Bible to convey)that would totally change the current theologies of religion if people had the freedom to make up their own minds about things...
