Best Quotes about Education
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.
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.
Education is when you read the fine print. Experience is what you get if you don't.
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.
Education is what survives when what has been learned has been forgotten.
B. F. Skinner
I just graduated and already I'm way behind.
An education obtained with money is worse than no education at all
Education is a kind of continuing dialogue, and a dialogue assumes, in the nature of the case, different points of view.
Training is everything. The peach was once a bitter almond; cauliflower is nothing but cabbage with a college education.
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 weapon, whose effect depends on who holds it in his hands and at whom it is aimed.
The foundation of every state is the education of its youth.
Education is the power to think clearly, the power to act well in the worlds work, and the power to appreciate life.
The direction in which education starts a man will determine his future life.
The first condition of education is being able to put someone to wholesome and meaningful work.
Our attitude towards ourselves should be to be satiable in learning and towards others to be tireless in teaching.
Education begins a gentleman, conversation completes him.
Dr. Thomas Fuller
An educational system isn't worth a great deal if it teaches young people how to make a living but doesn't teach them how to make a life.
What does education often do? It makes a straight-cut ditch of a free, meandering brook.
Thoreau, Henry David
Everyone has a right to a university degree in America, even if it's in Hamburger Technology.
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
The very spring and root of honesty and virtue lie in good education.
Real education must ultimately be limited to men who insist on knowing. The rest is mere sheep-herding.
No one wants a good education. Everyone wants a good degree.
The purpose of education is to keep a culture from being drowned in senseless repetitions, each of which claims to offer a new insight.
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.
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
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 creative person is usually rebellious. He or she is the survivor of a trauma called education.
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.
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
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.
Formal education will make you a living; self-education will make you a fortune.
It is possible to store the mind with a million facts and still be entirely uneducated.
Next in importance to freedom and justice is popular education, without which neither freedom nor justice can be permanently maintained.
James A. Garfield
Education... has produced a vast population able to read but unable to distinguish what is worth reading.
G. M. Trevelyan
America believes in education: the average professor earns more money in a year than a professional athlete earns in a whole week.
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.
Modern education has devoted itself to the teaching of impudence, and then we complain that we can no longer control our mobs.
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
Mistakes are a great educator when one is honest enough to admit them and willing to learn from them.
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.
If nobody dropped out of eighth grade, who would hire the college graduates?
It is only the ignorant who despise education.
Every uneducated person is a caricature of himself.
The most important part of education is proper training in the nursery.
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 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.
Fathers send their sons to college either because they went to college or because they didn't.
L. L. Henderson
