Timely thought for a new school year

"Ah, but a man's reach should exceed his grasp
Or what's a heaven for?"
from Andrea del Sarto, 1855, by Robert Browning

True for Renaissance masters and especially for children.

Reminded by The Ode Less Travelled: Unlocking the Poet Within by the marvellous Stephen Fry. Thanks, Pop.
