Bachelor's degrees make pretty good placemats if you get'em laminated.
Best Quotes about Education
Education is when you read the fine print. Experience is what you get if you don't.
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.
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.
Invest in yourself, in your education. There's nothing better.
Formal education will make you a living; self-education will make you a fortune.
Most people are willing to pay more to be amused than to be educated.
Savage, Robert C.
The foundation of every state is the education of its youth.
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 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.
Education is the power to think clearly, the power to act well in the worlds work, and the power to appreciate life.
Real education must ultimately be limited to men who insist on knowing. The rest is mere sheep-herding.
True education makes for inequality; the inequality of individuality, the inequality of success, the glorious inequality of talent, of genius; for inequality, not mediocrity, individual superiority, not standardization, is the measure of the progress of the world.
Schelling, Felix E.
Bachelor's degrees make pretty good placemats if you get'em laminated.
What does education often do? It makes a straight-cut ditch of a free, meandering brook.
Thoreau, Henry David
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
Our attitude towards ourselves should be to be satiable in learning and towards others to be tireless in teaching.
School is where you go between when your parents can't take you, and industry can't take you.
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
America believes in education: the average professor earns more money in a year than a professional athlete earns in a whole week.
Good teaching is one-fourth preparation and three-fourths theater.
No one wants a good education. Everyone wants a good degree.
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.
Now, if the principle of toleration were once admitted into classical education --if it were admitted that the great object is to read and enjoy a language, and the stress of the teaching were placed on the few things absolutely essential to this result, if the tortoise were allowed time to creep, and the bird permitted to fly, and the fish to swim, towards the enchanted and divine sources of Helicon --all might in their own way arrive there, and rejoice in its flowers, its beauty, and its coolness.
Stowe, Harriet Beecher
The first condition of education is being able to put someone to wholesome and meaningful work.
The great aim of education is not knowledge but action.
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.
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.
The great thing, then, in all education, is to make our nervous system our ally instead of our enemy.
Education has for its object the formation of character.
Education begins a gentleman, conversation completes him.
Dr. Thomas Fuller
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 creative person is usually rebellious. He or she is the survivor of a trauma called education.
An effeminate education weakens both the mind and the body.
The advantage of a classical education is that it enables you to despise the wealth that it prevents you from achieving.
The best education in the world is that got by struggling to get a living.
I just graduated and already I'm way behind.
Education is the ability to listen to almost anything without losing your temper or your self-confidence.
Next in importance to freedom and justice is popular education, without which neither freedom nor justice can be permanently maintained.
James A. Garfield
Both class and race survive education, and neither should. What is education then? If it doesn't help a human being to recognize that humanity is humanity, what is it for? So you can make a bigger salary than other people?
The only person who is educated is the one who has learned how to learn and change.
Public school is a place of detention for children placed in the care of teachers who are afraid of the principal, principals who are afraid of the school board, school boards who are afraid of the parents, parents who are afraid of the children, and children who are afraid of nobody.
I didn't go to college at all, any college, and I'm not saying you wasted your time or money, but look at me, I'm a huge celebrity.
The world is run by C students.
The most important part of education is proper training in the nursery.
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.
To repeat what others have said, requires education; to challenge it, requires brains.
Mary Pettibone Poole
Education is like a double-edged sword. It may be turned to dangerous uses if it is not properly handled.
A liberally educated person meets new ideas with curiosity and fascination. An illiberally educated person meets new ideas with fear.
Stockdale, James B.
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
It is only the ignorant who despise education.
