Education quotes

Education makes a people easy to lead, but difficult to drive; easy to govern but impossible to enslave.

- Baron Henry Peter Brougham

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

The Church is not a gallery for the exhibition of eminent Christians, but a school for the education of imperfect ones.

- Beecher, Henry Ward

Everyone in our culture wants to win a prize. Perhaps that is the grand lesson we have taken with us from kindergarten in the age of perversions of Dewey-style education: everyone gets a ribbon, and praise becomes a meaningless narcotic to soothe egoistic distemper.

- Early, Gerald

Natural ability without education has more often raised a man to glory and virtue than education without natural ability.

- Cicero

Education without values, as useful as it is, seems rather to make man a more clever devil.

- C. S. Lewis

A child's education should begin at least one hundred years before he is born.

- Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, the education, the money, than circumstances, than failure, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company... a church... a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past... we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it. And so it is with you... we are in charge of our Attitudes.

- Swindoll, Charles

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

A sense of curiosity is nature's original school of education.

- Dr. Smiley Blanton

Real education should educate us out of self into something far finer; into a selflessness which links us with all humanity.

- Nancy Astor

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

Prudishness is pretense of innocence without innocence. Women have to remain prudish as long as men are sentimental, dense, and evil enough to demand of them eternal innocence and lack of education. For innocence is the only thing which can ennoble lack of education.

- Schlegel, Friedrich

It's misleading to suppose there is any basic difference between education and entertainment.

- Marshall McLuhan

An education obtained with money is worse than no education at all

- Socrates

It is against the grain of modern education to teach children to program. What fun is there in making plans, acquiring discipline in organizing thoughts, devoting attention to detail, and learning to be self-critical?

- Alan Perlis

There's only one thing that can kill the movies, and that's education.

- Rogers, Will

Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.

- William Butler Yeats

Innately, children seem to have little true realistic anxiety. They will run along the brink of water, climb on the window sill, play with sharp objects and with fire, in short, do everything that is bound to damage them and to worry those in charge of them, that is wholly the result of education; for they cannot be allowed to make the instructive experiences themselves.

- Sigmund Freud
