Could someone please email me the source of the Forster quotation "Spoon feeding in the long run teaches us nothing but the shape of the spoon"? I'd appreciate it.

"Spoon feeding in the long run teaches us nothing but the shape of the spoon." This can be found in:
The Observer, `Sayings of the Week', 7 Oct 1951.
There may be other sources too (perhaps one of the three books of essays, articles etc.: 'Abinger Harvest', 'Two Cheers for Democracy' and 'The Prince's Tale and other Uncollected Writings') but I could not tell you which. Hope this helps.
