Posted 07/28/2020 03:24PM

Yukichi Fukuzawa (1835-1901) was Founder of Keio University. He was an author, writer, teacher, entrepreneur and political theorist whose ideas about government and social institutions made a lasting impression on a rapidly- changing Japan.

 

He wrote that

 

"heaven does not create one person above or below another person. Any existing distinction between the wise and the stupid, between the rich and the poor, comes down to a matter of education."
