優れた運動能力を示す…

IMAGE: Why is it, I wonder, that anyone who displays superior athletic ability is an object of admiration to his classmates, while one who displays superior mental ability is an object of hatred? Is there some hidden understanding that it is brains, not muscles, that define the human being and that children who are not good at athletics are simply not good, while those that are not smart feel themselves to be subhuman? I don't know.

優れた運動能力を示す誰もがクラスメートに対する賞賛の対象となる一方、優れた知能を示す人が憎悪の対象となるのは何故だろう。筋肉ではなく脳こそが人間を定義するのだから、体育が不得意な子供たちは単に不得意というだけである一方、賢くない子供たちは自分たちが人間以下であると感じる、といった何か隠された理解があるのか。私には解らない。 - (1920 - 92)
