We pledge to preserve the classics by both teaching and learning from the ancients.
It is often said that history repeats itself. Perhaps this is only because we fail to learn from the past. Many of the problems we face today were also encountered by the ancients. Poor governance, social injustices and economic hardships are not new phenomena, and yet we repeat the same old mistakes, time and time again. While the study of the ancient texts seems remote and distant, it can help us make sense of the world today. Let us pledge then, to revisit and revitalize the many lessons the classics have to offer us.
By educating ourselves and our children in the classics we can do our part to equip all with the timeless wisdom so often forgotten today. The Classics are steeped in wonderful stories of human achievement, endeavor and disaster. It is a history of humankind and part of western heritage, a heritage which should not be lost.
It is only through studying the past that we can hope to deserve a better future.
