Education Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Education

1.
To repeat what others have said, requires education; to challenge it, requires brains.
Mary Pettibone Poole

2.
Education is the power to think clearly, the power to act well in the worlds work, and the power to appreciate life.
Young, Brigham

3.
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.

4.
Real education must ultimately be limited to men who insist on knowing. The rest is mere sheep-herding.
Pound, Ezra

5.
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.
Piaget, Jean

6.
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.
Spark, Muriel

7.
Everyone has a right to a university degree in America, even if it's in Hamburger Technology.
Clive James

8.
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

9.
The child who desires education will be bettered by it; the child who dislikes it disgraced.
Ruskin, John

10.
Our attitude towards ourselves should be to be satiable in learning and towards others to be tireless in teaching.
Zedong, Mao

11.
School is where you go between when your parents can't take you, and industry can't take you.
Updike, John

12.
The direction in which education starts a man will determine his future life.
Plato

13.
Good teaching is one-fourth preparation and three-fourths theater.
Gail Godwin

14.
Education is when you read the fine print. Experience is what you get if you don't.
Pete Seeger

15.
The most important part of teaching is to teach what it is to know.
Weil, Simone

16.
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

17.
It is possible to store the mind with a million facts and still be entirely uneducated.
Alec Bourne

18.
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?
Richards, Beah

19.
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

20.
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.

21.
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

22.
Public school is a place of detention for children placed in the care of teachers who are afraid of the principal, principals who are afraid of the school board, school boards who are afraid of the parents, parents who are afraid of the children, and children who are afraid of nobody.

23.
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.
Plato

24.
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.
Sullivan, Anne

25.
The creative person is usually rebellious. He or she is the survivor of a trauma called education.

26.
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.
Socrates

27.
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.

28.
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.
Anatole France

29.
Bachelor's degrees make pretty good placemats if you get'em laminated.
Jeph Jacques

30.
The best education in the world is that got by struggling to get a living.
Phillips, Wendell

31.
Education is like a double-edged sword. It may be turned to dangerous uses if it is not properly handled.
Wu Ting-Fang

32.
Education begins a gentleman, conversation completes him.
Dr. Thomas Fuller

33.
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.
Jeph Jacques

34.
The only person who is educated is the one who has learned how to learn and change.
Rogers, Carl

35.
Education is a weapon, whose effect depends on who holds it in his hands and at whom it is aimed.
Stalin, Joseph

36.
Education is what survives when what has been learned has been forgotten.
B. F. Skinner

37.
The great aim of education is not knowledge but action.
Herbert Spencer

38.
An education obtained with money is worse than no education at all
Socrates

39.
The foundation of every state is the education of its youth.
Diogenes Laertius

40.
The purpose of education is to keep a culture from being drowned in senseless repetitions, each of which claims to offer a new insight.
Rosenberg, Harold

41.
The strength of the United States is not the gold at Fort Knox or the weapons of mass destruction that we have, but the sum total of the education and the character of our people.
Claiborne Pell

42.
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.
Wilde, Oscar

43.
Most people are willing to pay more to be amused than to be educated.
Savage, Robert C.

44.
I just graduated and already I'm way behind.

45.
America believes in education: the average professor earns more money in a year than a professional athlete earns in a whole week.
Evan Esar

46.
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.
Ellen DeGeneres

47.
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.
Twain, Mark

48.
Formal education will make you a living; self-education will make you a fortune.
Rohn, Jim

49.
I have never let my schooling interfere with my education.
Mark Twain

50.
The world is run by C students.
