Let each child follow his own path even if it takes him to the edge of a cliff.

Japanese Proverb

“Solving a problem for which you know there’s an answer is like climbing a mountain with a guide, along a trail someone else has laid. In mathematics, the truth is somewhere out there in a place no one knows, beyond all the beaten paths. And it’s not always at the top of the mountain. It might be in a crack on the smoothest cliff or somewhere deep in the valley.”

― Yoko Ogawa, The Housekeeper and the Professor
