Best Quotes about Education
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
What does education often do? It makes a straight-cut ditch of a free, meandering brook.
Thoreau, Henry David
To repeat what others have said, requires education; to challenge it, requires brains.
Mary Pettibone Poole
The most important part of education is proper training in the nursery.
Bachelor's degrees make pretty good placemats if you get'em laminated.
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.
Most people are willing to pay more to be amused than to be educated.
Savage, Robert C.
The great aim of education is not knowledge but action.
Modern education has devoted itself to the teaching of impudence, and then we complain that we can no longer control our mobs.
Training is everything. The peach was once a bitter almond; cauliflower is nothing but cabbage with a college education.
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.
The child who desires education will be bettered by it; the child who dislikes it disgraced.
An education obtained with money is worse than no education at all
Our attitude towards ourselves should be to be satiable in learning and towards others to be tireless in teaching.
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
Education is what survives when what has been learned has been forgotten.
B. F. Skinner
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
America believes in education: the average professor earns more money in a year than a professional athlete earns in a whole week.
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 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.
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.
College isn't the place to go for ideas.
It is only the ignorant who despise education.
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.
Everyone has a right to a university degree in America, even if it's in Hamburger Technology.
It is possible to store the mind with a million facts and still be entirely uneducated.
The difficulty is to try and teach the multitude that something can be true and untrue at the same time.
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.
A liberally educated person meets new ideas with curiosity and fascination. An illiberally educated person meets new ideas with fear.
Stockdale, James B.
The very spring and root of honesty and virtue lie in good education.
Education is a weapon, whose effect depends on who holds it in his hands and at whom it is aimed.
The best education in the world is that got by struggling to get a living.
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 foundation of every state is the education of its youth.
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.
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
No one wants a good education. Everyone wants a good degree.
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.
Education is when you read the fine print. Experience is what you get if you don't.
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.
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
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.
The great thing, then, in all education, is to make our nervous system our ally instead of our enemy.
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.
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
Invest in yourself, in your education. There's nothing better.
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.
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.
