La mirada más a futuro posible

“Parents are not interested in producing the ‘complete man’ any more. They want to qualify their boys for jobs in the modern world. You can hardly blame them, can you?”
“Oh yes,” said Scott-King, “I can and do.” 
 Later he adds: “I think it would be very wicked indeed to do anything to fit a boy for the modern world.” And when the headmaster objects that this is a short-sighted view, Scott-King retorts, “I think it the most long-sided view. It is possible to take.” 

Evelyn Waugh, Scott-King's Modern Europe.
