Knowledge ‘beautifies and adorns the soul’

Welcome to my next installment as part of the iHomeschool Network’s new series called Quotable Wisdom.

Each Tuesday, we’re all posting thoughts from topics or authors of interest. I’m sharing quotes from famous mathematicians and scientists for your pinning and Facebooking pleasure, but my biggest goal is that I hope something will spark you or your family to dig deeper into a particular area or a particular person’s life.

Quote by noted scientist Dr. John Dee

Sarah picked our quotable person this week as the “part two” of last week’s quote. Like Nicholas Flamel last week, today’s author – Queen Elizabeth’s personal mathematician, physician, astronomer and spy (and even the original “007”) – is the subject of some factual reading we’ve been doing – as well as our new favorite fiction series by Michael Scott.

There is (gentle reader) nothing (the works of God only set apart) which so much beautifies and adorns the soul and mind of man as does knowledge of the good arts and sciences.
~ Dr. John Dee
