To be prepared against surprise is to be trained. To be prepared for surprise is to be educated. Education discovers an increasing richness in the past, because it sees what is unfinished there. Training regards the past as finished and the future as to be finished. Education leads to a continuing self-discovery; training leads toward a final self-definition. Training repeats as a completed past in the future. Education continues an unfinished past into the future. James P. Carse, Finite and Infinite Games:a Vision of Life as Play and Possibility
