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.
Best Quotes about Education
Our attitude towards ourselves should be to be satiable in learning and towards others to be tireless in teaching.
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.
The child who desires education will be bettered by it; the child who dislikes it disgraced.
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.
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
Every uneducated person is a caricature of himself.
Good teaching is one-fourth preparation and three-fourths theater.
An education obtained with money is worse than no education at all
The best education in the world is that got by struggling to get a living.
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.
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.
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 first condition of education is being able to put someone to wholesome and meaningful work.
Education... has produced a vast population able to read but unable to distinguish what is worth reading.
G. M. Trevelyan
Education is when you read the fine print. Experience is what you get if you don't.
To repeat what others have said, requires education; to challenge it, requires brains.
Mary Pettibone Poole
The whole theory of modern education is radically unsound. Fortunately in England, at any rate, education produces no effect whatsoever. If it did, it would prove a serious danger to the upper classes, and probably lead to acts of violence.
Most people are willing to pay more to be amused than to be educated.
Savage, Robert C.
The great thing, then, in all education, is to make our nervous system our ally instead of our enemy.
It is possible to store the mind with a million facts and still be entirely uneducated.
If nobody dropped out of eighth grade, who would hire the college graduates?
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
No one wants a good education. Everyone wants a good degree.
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.
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 creative person is usually rebellious. He or she is the survivor of a trauma called education.
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.
The difficulty is to try and teach the multitude that something can be true and untrue at the same time.
The only person who is educated is the one who has learned how to learn and change.
The great aim of education is not knowledge but action.
The very spring and root of honesty and virtue lie in good education.
The most important part of teaching is to teach what it is to know.
Education is a kind of continuing dialogue, and a dialogue assumes, in the nature of the case, different points of view.
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 what survives when what has been learned has been forgotten.
B. F. Skinner
The purpose of education is to keep a culture from being drowned in senseless repetitions, each of which claims to offer a new insight.
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.
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
Fathers send their sons to college either because they went to college or because they didn't.
L. L. Henderson
School is where you go between when your parents can't take you, and industry can't take you.
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
Mistakes are a great educator when one is honest enough to admit them and willing to learn from them.
The direction in which education starts a man will determine his future life.
Invest in yourself, in your education. There's nothing better.
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
If our education had included training to bear unpleasantness and to let the first shock pass until we could think more calmly, many an unbearable situation would become manageable, and many a nervous illness avoided. There is proverb expressing this. It says,trouble is a tunnel thorough which we pass and not a brick wall against which we must break our head.
I just graduated and already I'm way behind.
What does education often do? It makes a straight-cut ditch of a free, meandering brook.
Thoreau, Henry David
Education is a weapon, whose effect depends on who holds it in his hands and at whom it is aimed.
