Best Quotes about Education
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
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.
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
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
America believes in education: the average professor earns more money in a year than a professional athlete earns in a whole week.
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.
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.
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
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.
Our attitude towards ourselves should be to be satiable in learning and towards others to be tireless in teaching.
I just graduated and already I'm way behind.
The difficulty is to try and teach the multitude that something can be true and untrue at the same time.
No one wants a good education. Everyone wants a good degree.
School is where you go between when your parents can't take you, and industry can't take you.
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 have never let my schooling interfere with my education.
The purpose of education is to keep a culture from being drowned in senseless repetitions, each of which claims to offer a new insight.
The best education in the world is that got by struggling to get a living.
Bachelor's degrees make pretty good placemats if you get'em laminated.
Education begins a gentleman, conversation completes him.
Dr. Thomas Fuller
Education... has produced a vast population able to read but unable to distinguish what is worth reading.
G. M. Trevelyan
The advantage of a classical education is that it enables you to despise the wealth that it prevents you from achieving.
Education is like a double-edged sword. It may be turned to dangerous uses if it is not properly handled.
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.
The foundation of every state is the education of its youth.
Modern education has devoted itself to the teaching of impudence, and then we complain that we can no longer control our mobs.
Formal education will make you a living; self-education will make you a fortune.
College isn't the place to go for ideas.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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 most important part of education is proper training in the nursery.
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.

If nobody dropped out of eighth grade, who would hire the college graduates?
An effeminate education weakens both the mind and the body.
A liberally educated person meets new ideas with curiosity and fascination. An illiberally educated person meets new ideas with fear.
Stockdale, James B.
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.
Most people are willing to pay more to be amused than to be educated.
Savage, Robert C.
The great aim of education is not knowledge but action.

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
