The advantage of a classical education is that it enables you to despise the wealth that it prevents you from achieving.
Best Quotes about Education
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 first condition of education is being able to put someone to wholesome and meaningful work.
Education is the power to think clearly, the power to act well in the worlds work, and the power to appreciate life.
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
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.
The very spring and root of honesty and virtue lie in good education.
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 foundation of every state is the education of its youth.
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.
Good teaching is one-fourth preparation and three-fourths theater.
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 a kind of continuing dialogue, and a dialogue assumes, in the nature of the case, different points of view.
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 direction in which education starts a man will determine his future life.
Bachelor's degrees make pretty good placemats if you get'em laminated.
It is possible to store the mind with a million facts and still be entirely uneducated.
Education... has produced a vast population able to read but unable to distinguish what is worth reading.
G. M. Trevelyan
Training is everything. The peach was once a bitter almond; cauliflower is nothing but cabbage with a college education.
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.
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.
Education is a state-controlled manufactory of echoes.
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
An education obtained with money is worse than no education at all
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.
Formal education will make you a living; self-education will make you a fortune.
Education is like a double-edged sword. It may be turned to dangerous uses if it is not properly handled.
Education is a weapon, whose effect depends on who holds it in his hands and at whom it is aimed.
The only person who is educated is the one who has learned how to learn and change.
Next in importance to freedom and justice is popular education, without which neither freedom nor justice can be permanently maintained.
James A. Garfield
Modern education has devoted itself to the teaching of impudence, and then we complain that we can no longer control our mobs.
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.
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.
The child who desires education will be bettered by it; the child who dislikes it disgraced.
America believes in education: the average professor earns more money in a year than a professional athlete earns in a whole week.
A liberally educated person meets new ideas with curiosity and fascination. An illiberally educated person meets new ideas with fear.
Stockdale, James B.
Invest in yourself, in your education. There's nothing better.
Every uneducated person is a caricature of himself.
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
It is only the ignorant who despise education.
No one wants a good education. Everyone wants a good degree.
Education is when you read the fine print. Experience is what you get if you don't.
Mistakes are a great educator when one is honest enough to admit them and willing to learn from them.
The great aim of education is not knowledge but action.
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.
Education begins a gentleman, conversation completes him.
Dr. Thomas Fuller
An effeminate education weakens both the mind and the body.
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.
