Our attitude towards ourselves should be to be satiable in learning and towards others to be tireless in teaching.
Best Quotes about Education
Good teaching is one-fourth preparation and three-fourths theater.
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.
Invest in yourself, in your education. There's nothing better.
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.
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 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.
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 nobody dropped out of eighth grade, who would hire the college graduates?
Every uneducated person is a caricature of himself.
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 begins a gentleman, conversation completes him.
Dr. Thomas Fuller
Formal education will make you a living; self-education will make you a fortune.
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.
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
Everyone has a right to a university degree in America, even if it's in Hamburger Technology.
I have never let my schooling interfere with my education.
Education has for its object the formation of character.
Education is a kind of continuing dialogue, and a dialogue assumes, in the nature of the case, different points of view.
College isn't the place to go for ideas.
Education is a state-controlled manufactory of echoes.
Education... has produced a vast population able to read but unable to distinguish what is worth reading.
G. M. Trevelyan
The advantage of a classical education is that it enables you to despise the wealth that it prevents you from achieving.
The foundation of every state is the education of its youth.
It is only the ignorant who despise education.
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.
The world is run by C students.
An education obtained with money is worse than no education at all
I just graduated and already I'm way behind.
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
Fathers send their sons to college either because they went to college or because they didn't.
L. L. Henderson
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.
A liberally educated person meets new ideas with curiosity and fascination. An illiberally educated person meets new ideas with fear.
Stockdale, James B.
Education is the ability to listen to almost anything without losing your temper or your self-confidence.
The difficulty is to try and teach the multitude that something can be true and untrue at the same time.
Modern education has devoted itself to the teaching of impudence, and then we complain that we can no longer control our mobs.
Mistakes are a great educator when one is honest enough to admit them and willing to learn from them.
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.
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.
What does education often do? It makes a straight-cut ditch of a free, meandering brook.
Thoreau, Henry David
The great aim of education is not knowledge but action.
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 first condition of education is being able to put someone to wholesome and meaningful work.
Education is a weapon, whose effect depends on who holds it in his hands and at whom it is aimed.
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 what survives when what has been learned has been forgotten.
B. F. Skinner
The great thing, then, in all education, is to make our nervous system our ally instead of our enemy.
The most important part of teaching is to teach what it is to know.
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
Education is like a double-edged sword. It may be turned to dangerous uses if it is not properly handled.
The direction in which education starts a man will determine his future life.
