Best Quotes about Education
Fathers send their sons to college either because they went to college or because they didn't.
L. L. Henderson
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, 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.
The only person who is educated is the one who has learned how to learn and change.
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.
An effeminate education weakens both the mind and the body.
The foundation of every state is the education of its youth.
Good teaching is one-fourth preparation and three-fourths theater.
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.
If nobody dropped out of eighth grade, who would hire the college graduates?
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.
I have never let my schooling interfere with my education.
The direction in which education starts a man will determine his future life.
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 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.
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
Education is the ability to listen to almost anything without losing your temper or your self-confidence.
Formal education will make you a living; self-education will make you a fortune.
Invest in yourself, in your education. There's nothing better.
Education begins a gentleman, conversation completes him.
Dr. Thomas Fuller
The child who desires education will be bettered by it; the child who dislikes it disgraced.
Modern education has devoted itself to the teaching of impudence, and then we complain that we can no longer control our mobs.
Every uneducated person is a caricature of himself.
College isn't the place to go for ideas.
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.
The best education in the world is that got by struggling to get a living.
Everyone has a right to a university degree in America, even if it's in Hamburger Technology.
School is where you go between when your parents can't take you, and industry can't take you.
Next in importance to freedom and justice is popular education, without which neither freedom nor justice can be permanently maintained.
James A. Garfield
No one wants a good education. Everyone wants a good degree.
Education is the power to think clearly, the power to act well in the worlds work, and the power to appreciate life.
I just graduated and already I'm way behind.
Education is a weapon, whose effect depends on who holds it in his hands and at whom it is aimed.
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.
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.
Education is when you read the fine print. Experience is what you get if you don't.
An education obtained with money is worse than no education at all
Most people are willing to pay more to be amused than to be educated.
Savage, Robert C.
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 produced a vast population able to read but unable to distinguish what is worth reading.
G. M. Trevelyan
The first condition of education is being able to put someone to wholesome and meaningful work.
A liberally educated person meets new ideas with curiosity and fascination. An illiberally educated person meets new ideas with fear.
Stockdale, James B.
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.
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.
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.
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.
The very spring and root of honesty and virtue lie in good education.
The most important part of teaching is to teach what it is to know.
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.
