“We spend the first year of a child’s life teaching it to walk and talk and the rest of its life to shut up and sit down. There’s something wrong there.”
“Kids are never the problem. They are born scientists.
The problem is always the adults.
They beat the curiosity out of kids.
They outnumber kids.
They wield resources.
That’s why my public focus is primarily adults.”
– Neil deGrasse Tyson
