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.
Whom do I call educated? First, those who manage well the circumstances they encounter day by day. Next, those who are decent and honorable in their intercourse with all men, bearing easily and good naturedly what is offensive in others and being as agreeable and reasonable to their associates as is humanly possible to be... those who hold their pleasures always under control and are not ultimately overcome by their misfortunes... those who are not spoiled by their successes, who do not desert their true selves but hold their ground steadfastly as wise and sober -- minded men.
What does education often do? It makes a straight-cut ditch of a free, meandering brook.
Thoreau, Henry David
The creative person is usually rebellious. He or she is the survivor of a trauma called education.
A liberally educated person meets new ideas with curiosity and fascination. An illiberally educated person meets new ideas with fear.
Stockdale, James B.
Fathers send their sons to college either because they went to college or because they didn't.
L. L. Henderson
Bachelor's degrees make pretty good placemats if you get'em laminated.
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.
Most people are willing to pay more to be amused than to be educated.
Savage, Robert C.
If nobody dropped out of eighth grade, who would hire the college graduates?
Education is when you read the fine print. Experience is what you get if you don't.
The secret of all success is to know how to deny yourself. Prove that you can control yourself, and you are an educated man; and without this all other education is good for nothing.
R. D. Hitchcock
Education... has produced a vast population able to read but unable to distinguish what is worth reading.
G. M. Trevelyan
Education is like a double-edged sword. It may be turned to dangerous uses if it is not properly handled.
The great aim of education is not knowledge but action.

Adam Cooper and Bill Collage
Formal education will make you a living; self-education will make you a fortune.
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.
The only person who is educated is the one who has learned how to learn and change.

The advantage of a classical education is that it enables you to despise the wealth that it prevents you from achieving.
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.
There is hardly a pioneer's hut which does not contain a few odd volumes of Shakespeare. I remember reading the feudal drama of Henry V for the first time in a log cabin.
Tocqueville, Alexis De
Let us describe the education of our men. What then is the education to be? Perhaps we could hardly find a better than that which the experience of the past has already discovered, which consists, I believe, in gymnastic, for the body, and music for the mind.
To me education is a leading out of what is already there in the pupil's soul. To Miss Mackay it is a putting in of something that is not there, and that is not what I call education, I call it intrusion.
The very spring and root of honesty and virtue lie in good education.
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
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.
Education begins a gentleman, conversation completes him.
Dr. Thomas Fuller
I just graduated and already I'm way behind.
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
To repeat what others have said, requires education; to challenge it, requires brains.
Mary Pettibone Poole

The first condition of education is being able to put someone to wholesome and meaningful work.
Next in importance to freedom and justice is popular education, without which neither freedom nor justice can be permanently maintained.
James A. Garfield
