Best Quotes about Education
Education is a kind of continuing dialogue, and a dialogue assumes, in the nature of the case, different points of view.
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.
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.
Most people are willing to pay more to be amused than to be educated.
Savage, Robert C.
Education is the power to think clearly, the power to act well in the worlds work, and the power to appreciate life.
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.
Modern education has devoted itself to the teaching of impudence, and then we complain that we can no longer control our mobs.
The child who desires education will be bettered by it; the child who dislikes it disgraced.
Fathers send their sons to college either because they went to college or because they didn't.
L. L. Henderson
An education obtained with money is worse than no education at all

The only person who is educated is the one who has learned how to learn and change.
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.
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.
It is possible to store the mind with a million facts and still be entirely uneducated.
Everyone has a right to a university degree in America, even if it's in Hamburger Technology.
College isn't the place to go for ideas.
Education has for its object the formation of character.
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
Invest in yourself, in your education. There's nothing better.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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
Mistakes are a great educator when one is honest enough to admit them and willing to learn from them.
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
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.
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 is what survives when what has been learned has been forgotten.
B. F. Skinner
Every uneducated person is a caricature of himself.

Reverend Edward A. Malloy

Formal education will make you a living; self-education will make you a fortune.
The direction in which education starts a man will determine his future life.
That's what college is for - getting as many bad decisions as possible out of the way before you're forced into the real world. I keep a checklist of'em on the wall in my room.
