Malala Yousafzai on learning the importance of things

John Stewart interviewed Malala Yousafzai on his Daily Show back in October. At 1:05 into the video Stewart asks Malala, “Where did your love for education come from?” As part of her answer Malala said,

We don’t learn the importance of anything until it’s snatched from our hands.

She’s just 16 years old yet is wiser than the biggest of the Big Shots in Washington.

About Mike
A resident of the “30 square miles surrounded by reality,” I spend most of my time teaching economics and statistics to undergraduate students. I enjoy, naturally, economics and business, but also science (I was once an astronomical observatory assistant), politics, photography, food, travel and sports. Madison has grown quite a bit since 1978 when Governor Lee Dreyfus made that remark. According to Wikipedia, Madison is 67.3 square miles of land and 16 square miles of water. Visit for one of my favorite views of the isthmus. Or, why not come visit us!
