You have to not be so heavy-handed and so ostentatious. It's very important not to be.

The brushes aren't ours, nor the paint or canvas, but here they are in our hands, on loan. What shall we make?

Quote about It Is Handed: I'm worried that students will take their obedient place in society and look to become successful cogs in the wheel - let the wheel spin them around as it wants without taking a look at what they're doing. I'm concerned that students not become passive acceptors of the official doctrine that's handed down to them from the White House, the media, textbooks, teachers and preachers.
