“It is time we had uncommon schools. It is time that villages were universities. . . . . To act collectively is according to the spirit of our institutions; and I am confident that, as our circumstances are more flourishing, our means are greater than the nobleman’s. . . . . That is the uncommon school we want. Instead of noblemen, let us have noble villages of men.”

– Henry David Thoreau, Walden
