Best Quotes about Education
Training is everything. The peach was once a bitter almond; cauliflower is nothing but cabbage with a college education.
Education begins a gentleman, conversation completes him.
Dr. Thomas Fuller
What does education often do? It makes a straight-cut ditch of a free, meandering brook.
Thoreau, Henry David
It is only the ignorant who despise education.
Real education must ultimately be limited to men who insist on knowing. The rest is mere sheep-herding.
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?
An effeminate education weakens both the mind and the body.
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 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.
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 difficulty is to try and teach the multitude that something can be true and untrue at the same time.
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
Education is a kind of continuing dialogue, and a dialogue assumes, in the nature of the case, different points of view.
Education is what survives when what has been learned has been forgotten.
B. F. Skinner
Education has for its object the formation of character.
The great thing, then, in all education, is to make our nervous system our ally instead of our enemy.
Most people are willing to pay more to be amused than to be educated.
Savage, Robert C.
The advantage of a classical education is that it enables you to despise the wealth that it prevents you from achieving.
Bachelor's degrees make pretty good placemats if you get'em laminated.
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
The world is run by C students.
The only person who is educated is the one who has learned how to learn and change.
The first condition of education is being able to put someone to wholesome and meaningful work.
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.
Education is the power to think clearly, the power to act well in the worlds work, and the power to appreciate life.
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.
College isn't the place to go for ideas.
Everyone has a right to a university degree in America, even if it's in Hamburger Technology.
No one wants a good education. Everyone wants a good degree.
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 very spring and root of honesty and virtue lie in good 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 child who desires education will be bettered by it; the child who dislikes it disgraced.
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.
Good teaching is one-fourth preparation and three-fourths theater.
America believes in education: the average professor earns more money in a year than a professional athlete earns in a whole week.
The most important part of education is proper training in the nursery.
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.
I have never let my schooling interfere with my education.
Education is a weapon, whose effect depends on who holds it in his hands and at whom it is aimed.
Invest in yourself, in your education. There's nothing better.
The most important part of teaching is to teach what it is to know.
Next in importance to freedom and justice is popular education, without which neither freedom nor justice can be permanently maintained.
James A. Garfield
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.
Modern education has devoted itself to the teaching of impudence, and then we complain that we can no longer control our mobs.
A liberally educated person meets new ideas with curiosity and fascination. An illiberally educated person meets new ideas with fear.
Stockdale, James B.
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
Education is the ability to listen to almost anything without losing your temper or your self-confidence.
Education is like a double-edged sword. It may be turned to dangerous uses if it is not properly handled.
Education... has produced a vast population able to read but unable to distinguish what is worth reading.
G. M. Trevelyan
