The Crazy Quest of Schools
The facilitation of existence
such that it is possible
in the harshest of circumstances
is the ultimate quest of schools.
The harsher the circumstances become,
the stronger the schools become,
the less you can live without.
Though you can live without;
probably more so
than you will be able to do
in the harshest of circumstances.
So what's the crazier quest?
