What does education often do? It makes a straight-cut ditch of a free, meandering brook.
Best Quotes about Education
The foundation of every state is the education of its youth.
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.
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
The only person who is educated is the one who has learned how to learn and change.
An effeminate education weakens both the mind and the body.
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
The most important part of education is proper training in the nursery.
Education is when you read the fine print. Experience is what you get if you don't.
The most important part of teaching is to teach what it is to know.
Bachelor's degrees make pretty good placemats if you get'em laminated.
I have never let my schooling interfere with my 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.
Every uneducated person is a caricature of himself.
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
The great thing, then, in all education, is to make our nervous system our ally instead of our enemy.
America believes in education: the average professor earns more money in a year than a professional athlete earns in a whole week.
Next in importance to freedom and justice is popular education, without which neither freedom nor justice can be permanently maintained.
James A. Garfield
The direction in which education starts a man will determine his future life.
Education is a kind of continuing dialogue, and a dialogue assumes, in the nature of the case, different points of view.
Mistakes are a great educator when one is honest enough to admit them and willing to learn from them.
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
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.
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.
The difficulty is to try and teach the multitude that something can be true and untrue at the same time.
Education is the power to think clearly, the power to act well in the worlds work, and the power to appreciate life.
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
It is possible to store the mind with a million facts and still be entirely uneducated.
Education is what survives when what has been learned has been forgotten.
B. F. Skinner
Our attitude towards ourselves should be to be satiable in learning and towards others to be tireless in teaching.
Good teaching is one-fourth preparation and three-fourths theater.
School is where you go between when your parents can't take you, and industry can't take you.
The world is run by C students.
Education is the ability to listen to almost anything without losing your temper or your self-confidence.
Education... has produced a vast population able to read but unable to distinguish what is worth reading.
G. M. Trevelyan
Modern education has devoted itself to the teaching of impudence, and then we complain that we can no longer control our mobs.
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 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.
Education is a weapon, whose effect depends on who holds it in his hands and at whom it is aimed.
Real education must ultimately be limited to men who insist on knowing. The rest is mere sheep-herding.
What does education often do? It makes a straight-cut ditch of a free, meandering brook.
Thoreau, Henry David
I just graduated and already I'm way behind.
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
Most people are willing to pay more to be amused than to be educated.
Savage, Robert C.
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?
College isn't the place to go for ideas.
Invest in yourself, in your education. There's nothing better.
Formal education will make you a living; self-education will make you a fortune.
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.
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.
