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.
Education Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Education

1.
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.
Claiborne Pell

2.
Education is what survives when what has been learned has been forgotten.
B. F. Skinner

3.
A well-informed mind is the best security against the contagion of folly and of vice. The vacant mind is ever on the watch for relief, and ready to plunge into error, to escape from the languor of idleness.
Ann Radcliffe

4.
Everyone has a right to a university degree in America, even if it's in Hamburger Technology.
Clive James

5.
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.

6.
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.
Wilde, Oscar

7.
The best education in the world is that got by struggling to get a living.
Phillips, Wendell

8.
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.
Denis Diderot

9.
It is only the ignorant who despise education.
Publilius Syrus

10.
The first condition of education is being able to put someone to wholesome and meaningful work.
Ruskin, John

11.
The purpose of education is to keep a culture from being drowned in senseless repetitions, each of which claims to offer a new insight.
Rosenberg, Harold

12.
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

13.
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

14.
Mistakes are a great educator when one is honest enough to admit them and willing to learn from them.

15.
The foundation of every state is the education of its youth.
Diogenes Laertius

16.
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.
Piaget, Jean

17.
Real education must ultimately be limited to men who insist on knowing. The rest is mere sheep-herding.
Pound, Ezra

18.
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.
Ellen DeGeneres

19.
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.

20.
The difficulty is to try and teach the multitude that something can be true and untrue at the same time.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

21.
Education is the ability to listen to almost anything without losing your temper or your self-confidence.
Robert Frost

22.
The great aim of education is not knowledge but action.
Herbert Spencer

23.
America believes in education: the average professor earns more money in a year than a professional athlete earns in a whole week.
Evan Esar

24.
College isn't the place to go for ideas.
Helen Keller

25.
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?
Richards, Beah

26.
An education obtained with money is worse than no education at all
Socrates

27.
No one wants a good education. Everyone wants a good degree.
Rudolph, Lee

28.
If nobody dropped out of eighth grade, who would hire the college graduates?

29.
Education is a kind of continuing dialogue, and a dialogue assumes, in the nature of the case, different points of view.
Robert Hutchins

30.
Education is a state-controlled manufactory of echoes.
Norman Douglas

31.
Formal education will make you a living; self-education will make you a fortune.
Rohn, Jim

32.
Every uneducated person is a caricature of himself.
Schlegel, Friedrich

33.
Modern education has devoted itself to the teaching of impudence, and then we complain that we can no longer control our mobs.
Ruskin, John

34.
The most important part of education is proper training in the nursery.
Plato

35.
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.
Weeks, Claire

36.
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.
Anatole France

37.
Bachelor's degrees make pretty good placemats if you get'em laminated.
Jeph Jacques

38.
Fathers send their sons to college either because they went to college or because they didn't.
L. L. Henderson

39.
The direction in which education starts a man will determine his future life.
Plato

40.
Next in importance to freedom and justice is popular education, without which neither freedom nor justice can be permanently maintained.
James A. Garfield

41.
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

42.
Our attitude towards ourselves should be to be satiable in learning and towards others to be tireless in teaching.
Zedong, Mao

43.
I just graduated and already I'm way behind.

44.
Education begins a gentleman, conversation completes him.
Dr. Thomas Fuller

45.
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

46.
The very spring and root of honesty and virtue lie in good education.
Plutarch

47.
Invest in yourself, in your education. There's nothing better.
Porter, Sylvia

48.
To repeat what others have said, requires education; to challenge it, requires brains.
Mary Pettibone Poole

49.
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.
Plato

50.
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.
Socrates
