From Josephus—

"Our ground is good, and we work it to the utmost, but our chief ambition is for the education of our children. . . . We take most pains of all with the instruction of children, and esteem the observation of the laws, and the piety corresponding with them, the most important affair of our whole life" (Ap. 1.12.§60).

Not bad for a secular historian! Perhaps we as parents nowadays have something to learn from ancient pedagogy in the home.
