CONSIDER an Human Soul without Education like Marble in the Quarry, which shews none of its inherent Beauties, 'till the Skill of the Polisher fetches out the Colours, makes the Surface shine, and discovers every ornamental Cloud, Spot, and Vein that runs through the Body of it. Education, after the same manner, when it works upon a noble Mind, draws out to View every latent Virtue and Perfection, which without such Helps are never able to make their Appearance.

Sculptor shapes the block of marble & gives life to it:
Education shapes and polishes the soul and gives life to it.

When we give a huge stone to a common labour, he will break it and make granites out of it. If it is given to a "Shilpi" he will shape it into a beautiful statue of a God or that of a famous personality.
Similarly based on the "GURU" and the education we get(not the meterialistic education we get in our school and colleges), our personality and character is moulded. This will make us to understand that enrichment of our soul spiritual essence is important, rather than expecting pleasures to our physical structure.

Education makes good social and cultural beings of us. It helps us get the most in life. So much so as a sculptor who makes a marvel out of a block of marble.

The block of marble already contains the figure engraved in it. Similarly, the soul is already educated. By proper external education, we are removing the unwanted properties covering the soul to reveal the existing education.

When we talk about statue we talk of this made from marble only. Similarly though we talk about moneyed people it is about erudite scholarts we talk more in any forum.
