A Spoon

 I read Virtue Begins with a Spoon long ago and have remembered it's wise words.  Here is a snippet:

"Let me state my thesis outright: The quest of Wisdom commences with learning how to eat. The most basic steps towards virtue are mastered at the family table. Character begins with etiquette. Teach a child how to dine like a human being, and you have gone wonderfully far in his education."

What things does a child learn at the table? More than I thought.  Please check out his post here and see what he has to say.
