The Power of Companionship in Delight-Directed Study

Saturday Aug. 21, 2004

Delights are often caught rather than taught. They are fueled by the power of companionship. In fact, the greatest works of scholarship, literature, art, music, science or civic leadership have been born among small groups of fellow enthusiasts who were devoted to some area of shared interest. Each group was more like a club than a class. Each group was an age-integrated and led by the power of the best examples of its most delighted members. It only takes a few such companions,(and those have often been siblings!), to change the course of history.
