Education, as we know it, is mainly about survival. It tends to have little to do with our interior life. But to know yourself is the best education of all. Without it, everything else is survival for the mere sake of survival.
True knowledge starts with self-knowledge. And time spent learning to control yourself is one of the best uses of time. Both your sense of meaning and your chances of success are largely determined by how well you know yourself and your level of self-control.
