America believes in education: the average professor earns more money in a year than a professional athlete earns in a whole week.
Best Quotes about Education
Good teaching is one-fourth preparation and three-fourths theater.
Education is a kind of continuing dialogue, and a dialogue assumes, in the nature of the case, different points of view.
The best education in the world is that got by struggling to get a living.
The great aim of education is not knowledge but action.
A well-informed mind is the best security against the contagion of folly and of vice. The vacant mind is ever on the watch for relief, and ready to plunge into error, to escape from the languor of idleness.
An education isn't how much you have committed to memory, or even how much you know. It's being able to differentiate between what you do know and what you don't.
The number of books will grow continually, and one can predict that a time will come when it will be almost as difficult to learn anything from books as from the direct study of the whole universe. It will be almost as convenient to search for some bit of truth concealed in nature as it will be to find it hidden away in an immense multitude of bound volumes.
Education is what survives when what has been learned has been forgotten.
B. F. Skinner
I have never let my schooling interfere with my education.
A college degree is not a sign that one is a finished product but an indication a person is prepared for life.
Reverend Edward A. Malloy
Next in importance to freedom and justice is popular education, without which neither freedom nor justice can be permanently maintained.
James A. Garfield
She knows what is the best purpose of education: not to be frightened by the best but to treat it as part of daily life.
John Mason Brown
The principle goal of education is to create men who are capable of doing new things, not simply of repeating what other generations have done -- men who are creative, inventive and discoverers.
The advantage of a classical education is that it enables you to despise the wealth that it prevents you from achieving.
Formal education will make you a living; self-education will make you a fortune.
Everyone has a right to a university degree in America, even if it's in Hamburger Technology.
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.
Education has opened many, many doors. However, there are still innumerable doors shut tight -- unopened yet. These are the doors of the future. Perhaps one of my children will open one of these doors -- I shall help give him the key.
It is only the ignorant who despise education.
The first condition of education is being able to put someone to wholesome and meaningful work.
You don't need fancy highbrow traditions or money to really learn. You just need people with the desire to better themselves.
Adam Cooper and Bill Collage
Most people are willing to pay more to be amused than to be educated.
Savage, Robert C.
Modern education has devoted itself to the teaching of impudence, and then we complain that we can no longer control our mobs.
Soap and education are not as sudden as a massacre, but they are more deadly in the long run. Training is everything. The peach was once a bitter almond; cauliflower is nothing but cabbage with a college education.
Real education must ultimately be limited to men who insist on knowing. The rest is mere sheep-herding.
The great thing, then, in all education, is to make our nervous system our ally instead of our enemy.
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.
An effeminate education weakens both the mind and the body.
Education is a weapon, whose effect depends on who holds it in his hands and at whom it is aimed.
Perhaps the most valuable result of all education is the ability to make yourself do the thing you have to do, when it ought to be done, whether you like it or not; it is the first lesson that ought to be learned; and however early a man's training begins, it is probably the last lesson that he learns thoroughly.
Thomas H. Huxley
The world is run by C students.
Fathers send their sons to college either because they went to college or because they didn't.
L. L. Henderson
Mistakes are a great educator when one is honest enough to admit them and willing to learn from them.
Education is when you read the fine print. Experience is what you get if you don't.
Formal education is but an incident in the lifetime of an individual. Most of us who have given the subject any study have come to realize that education is a continuous process ending only when ambition comes to a halt.
Rees, R. I.
Education has for its object the formation of character.
Every uneducated person is a caricature of himself.
Invest in yourself, in your education. There's nothing better.
No one wants a good education. Everyone wants a good degree.
The direction in which education starts a man will determine his future life.
To repeat what others have said, requires education; to challenge it, requires brains.
Mary Pettibone Poole
The only person who is educated is the one who has learned how to learn and change.
All my life, as down an abyss without a bottom. I have been pouring van loads of information into that vacancy of oblivion I call my mind.
Smith, Logan Pearsall
Education, we see, is not merely gaining knowledge or skills helpful toward productive work, though certainly that is a part of it. Rather it is a replenishment and an expansion of the natural thirst of the mind and soul. Learning is a gradual process of growth, each step building upon the other. It is a process whereby the learner organizes and integrates not only facts but attitudes and values. The Lord has told us that we must open our minds and our hearts to learn. There is a Chinese proverb: Wisdom is as the moon rises, perceptible not in progress but in result. As our knowledge is converted to wisdom, the door to opportunity is unlocked.
Winder, Barbara W.
Education is a state-controlled manufactory of echoes.
No pain that we suffer, no trial that we experience is wasted. It ministers to the development of such qualities as patience, faith, fortitude and humility. All that we suffer and all that we endure, especially when we endure it patiently, builds up our characters, purifies our hearts, expands our souls, and makes us more tender and charitable, more worthy to be called the children of God... and it is through sorrow and suffering, toil and tribulation, that we gain the education that we come here to acquire and which will make us more like our Father and Mother in heaven.
Whitney, Orson F.
The very spring and root of honesty and virtue lie in good education.
Training is everything. The peach was once a bitter almond; cauliflower is nothing but cabbage with a college education.
Education is the ability to listen to almost anything without losing your temper or your self-confidence.
The most important part of teaching is to teach what it is to know.
