Education quotes
Education
Real education must ultimately be limited to men who insist on knowing. The rest is mere sheep-herding.

- Pound, Ezra
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.

- Ann Radcliffe
The aim of education should be to teach us rather how to think, than what to think--rather to improve our minds, so as to enable us to think for ourselves, than to load the memory with thoughts of other men.

- Bill Beattie
A thorough knowledge of the Bible is worth more than a college education.

- Theodore Roosevelt
A college education never hurt anybody who was willing to learn after he got it.

To get a man soundly saved it is not enough to put on him a pair of new breeches, to give him regular work, or even to give him a University education. These things are all outside a man, and if the inside remains unchanged you have wasted your labor. You must in some way or other graft upon the man's nature a new nature, which has in it the element of the Divine.

- Booth, William
My mother was the most beautiful woman I ever saw. All I am I owe to my mother. I attribute all my success in life to the moral, intellectual and physical education I received from her.

- Washington, George
If you consider what are called the virtues in mankind, you will find their growth is assisted by education and cultivation.

- Xenophon
There are three great questions which in lifewe have over and over again to answer: Is it right or wrong? Is it true or false? Is it beautiful or ugly? Our education ought to help us to answer these questions.

- Sir JohnWilliam Lubbock
Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.

- Coolidge, Calvin
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
Strange as it may seem, no amount of learning can cure stupidity, and formal education positively fortifies it.

- Vizinczey, Stephen
It is among the commonplaces of education that we often first cut off the living root and then try to replace its natural functions by artificial means. Thus we suppress the child's curiosity and then when he lacks a natural interest in learning he is offered special coaching for his scholastic difficulties.

- Alice Duer Miller
If little else, the brain is an educational toy.

- Tom Robbins
Apply yourself. Get all the education you can, but then, by God, do something. Don't just stand there, make it happen.

- Iacocca, Lee
What does education often do? It makes a straight-cut ditch of a free, meandering brook.

- Thoreau, Henry David
The real object of education is to have a man in the condition of continually asking questions.

- Bishop Creighton
I respect faith, but doubt is what gets you an education.

- Wilson Mizner
Society produces rogues, and education makes one rogue cleverer than another.

- Oscar Wilde
I say statecraft is soulcraft. Just as all education is moral education because learning conditions conduct, most legislation is moral legislations because it conditions the action and the thought of the nation in broad and important spheres in life.

- Will, George F.
