No one wants a good education. Everyone wants a good degree.
Best Quotes about Education
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.
To repeat what others have said, requires education; to challenge it, requires brains.
Mary Pettibone Poole
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.
An education obtained with money is worse than no education at all
The most important part of teaching is to teach what it is to know.
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
Education... has produced a vast population able to read but unable to distinguish what is worth reading.
G. M. Trevelyan
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 direction in which education starts a man will determine his future life.
Education begins a gentleman, conversation completes him.
Dr. Thomas Fuller
Our attitude towards ourselves should be to be satiable in learning and towards others to be tireless in teaching.
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
Education is like a double-edged sword. It may be turned to dangerous uses if it is not properly handled.
I just graduated and already I'm way behind.
School is where you go between when your parents can't take you, and industry can't take you.
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.
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
Everyone has a right to a university degree in America, even if it's in Hamburger Technology.
Training is everything. The peach was once a bitter almond; cauliflower is nothing but cabbage with a college education.
Most people are willing to pay more to be amused than to be educated.
Savage, Robert C.
Good teaching is one-fourth preparation and three-fourths theater.
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.
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 has for its object the formation of character.
The only person who is educated is the one who has learned how to learn and change.
The foundation of every state is the education of its youth.
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.
An effeminate education weakens both the mind and the body.
Next in importance to freedom and justice is popular education, without which neither freedom nor justice can be permanently maintained.
James A. Garfield
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
Education is a weapon, whose effect depends on who holds it in his hands and at whom it is aimed.
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.
The creative person is usually rebellious. He or she is the survivor of a trauma called education.
The very spring and root of honesty and virtue lie in good education.
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.
Invest in yourself, in your education. There's nothing better.
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.
Every uneducated person is a caricature of himself.
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
Education is a kind of continuing dialogue, and a dialogue assumes, in the nature of the case, different points of view.
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 advantage of a classical education is that it enables you to despise the wealth that it prevents you from achieving.
The great thing, then, in all education, is to make our nervous system our ally instead of our enemy.
Modern education has devoted itself to the teaching of impudence, and then we complain that we can no longer control our mobs.
Education is a state-controlled manufactory of echoes.
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.
Mistakes are a great educator when one is honest enough to admit them and willing to learn from them.
I have never let my schooling interfere with my education.
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.
