Education quotes
Education
The very spring and root of honesty and virtue lie in good education.

- Plutarch
I am beginning to suspect all elaborate and special systems of education. They seem to me to be built up on the supposition that every child is a kind of idiot who must be taught to think.

- Sullivan, Anne
Racism as a form of skin worship, and as a sickness and a pathological anxiety for America, is so great, until the poor whites -- rather than fighting for jobs or education -- fight to remain pink and fight to remain white. And therefore they cannot see an alliance with people that they feel to be inherently inferior.

- Jackson, Jesse
There are two classes of poets - the poets by education and practice, these we respect; and poets by nature, these we love.

- Ralph Waldo Emerson
If you sincerely desire a _truly_ well-rounded education, you must study the extremists, the obscure and "nutty". You need the balance! Your poor brain is already being impregnated with middle-of-the-road crap, twenty-four hours a day, _no matter what_. Network TV, newspapers, radio, magazines at the supermarket... even if you never watch, read, listen, or leave your house, even if you are deaf and blind, the _telepathic pressure alone_ of the uncountable normals surrounding you will insure that you are automatically well- grounded in consensus reality.

- Rev. Ivan Stang - High Weirdness By Mail
Education is a method whereby one acquires a higher grade of prejudices.

- Laurence J. Peter
'Tis well enough for a servant to be bred at an University. But the education is a little too pedantic for a gentleman.

The strength of the United States is not the gold at Fort Knox or the weapons of mass destruction that we have, but the sum total of the education and the character of our people.

- Claiborne Pell
Prudishness is pretense of innocence without innocence. Women have to remain prudish as long as men are sentimental, dense, and evil enough to demand of them eternal innocence and lack of education. For innocence is the only thing which can ennoble lack of education.

- Schlegel, Friedrich
Education's purpose is to replace an empty mind with an open one.

- Malcolm S. Forbes
Theories and goals of education don't matter a whit if you do not consider your students to be human beings.

- Walker, Lou Ann
Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.

- William Butler Yeats
A liberally educated person meets new ideas with curiosity and fascination. An illiberally educated person meets new ideas with fear.

- Stockdale, James B.
Music is the movement of sound to reach the soul for the education of its virtue.
