A college degree is not a sign that one is a finished product but an indication a person is prepared for life.

Education Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Education

1.
Education is the ability to listen to almost anything without losing your temper or your self-confidence.
Robert Frost

2.
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

3.
Mistakes are a great educator when one is honest enough to admit them and willing to learn from them.

4.
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

5.
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.

6.
Next in importance to freedom and justice is popular education, without which neither freedom nor justice can be permanently maintained.
James A. Garfield

7.
The great aim of education is not knowledge but action.
Herbert Spencer

8.
Education has for its object the formation of character.
Herbert Spencer

9.
The very spring and root of honesty and virtue lie in good education.
Plutarch

10.
Bachelor's degrees make pretty good placemats if you get'em laminated.
Jeph Jacques

11.
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

12.
Education is a kind of continuing dialogue, and a dialogue assumes, in the nature of the case, different points of view.
Robert Hutchins

13.
The difficulty is to try and teach the multitude that something can be true and untrue at the same time.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

14.
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.

15.
Everyone has a right to a university degree in America, even if it's in Hamburger Technology.
Clive James

16.
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

17.
If nobody dropped out of eighth grade, who would hire the college graduates?

18.
The creative person is usually rebellious. He or she is the survivor of a trauma called education.

19.
Every uneducated person is a caricature of himself.
Schlegel, Friedrich

20.
Modern education has devoted itself to the teaching of impudence, and then we complain that we can no longer control our mobs.
Ruskin, John

21.
Invest in yourself, in your education. There's nothing better.
Porter, Sylvia

22.
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

23.
An education obtained with money is worse than no education at all
Socrates

24.
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

25.
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

26.
Most people are willing to pay more to be amused than to be educated.
Savage, Robert C.

27.
School is where you go between when your parents can't take you, and industry can't take you.
Updike, John

28.
The child who desires education will be bettered by it; the child who dislikes it disgraced.
Ruskin, John

29.
An effeminate education weakens both the mind and the body.
Quinet, Edgar

30.
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.
Sullivan, Anne

31.
To repeat what others have said, requires education; to challenge it, requires brains.
Mary Pettibone Poole

32.
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

33.
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

34.
Good teaching is one-fourth preparation and three-fourths theater.
Gail Godwin

35.
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.
Jeph Jacques

36.
Education is when you read the fine print. Experience is what you get if you don't.
Pete Seeger

37.
Education is what survives when what has been learned has been forgotten.
B. F. Skinner

38.
Education is like a double-edged sword. It may be turned to dangerous uses if it is not properly handled.
Wu Ting-Fang

39.
The most important part of education is proper training in the nursery.
Plato

40.
I have never let my schooling interfere with my education.
Mark Twain

41.
America believes in education: the average professor earns more money in a year than a professional athlete earns in a whole week.
Evan Esar

42.
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.
Spark, Muriel

43.
College isn't the place to go for ideas.
Helen Keller

44.
It is possible to store the mind with a million facts and still be entirely uneducated.
Alec Bourne

45.
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.
Twain, Mark

46.
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

47.
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.

48.
The best education in the world is that got by struggling to get a living.
Phillips, Wendell

49.
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

50.
Education... has produced a vast population able to read but unable to distinguish what is worth reading.
G. M. Trevelyan
