Education Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Education

1.
Real education must ultimately be limited to men who insist on knowing. The rest is mere sheep-herding.
Pound, Ezra

2.
An education obtained with money is worse than no education at all
Socrates

3.
The most important part of teaching is to teach what it is to know.
Weil, Simone

4.
To repeat what others have said, requires education; to challenge it, requires brains.
Mary Pettibone Poole

5.
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.

6.
Mistakes are a great educator when one is honest enough to admit them and willing to learn from them.

7.
Education is a weapon, whose effect depends on who holds it in his hands and at whom it is aimed.
Stalin, Joseph

8.
The great thing, then, in all education, is to make our nervous system our ally instead of our enemy.
William James

9.
The creative person is usually rebellious. He or she is the survivor of a trauma called education.

10.
No one wants a good education. Everyone wants a good degree.
Rudolph, Lee

11.
The advantage of a classical education is that it enables you to despise the wealth that it prevents you from achieving.
Russell Green

12.
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

13.
Education is what survives when what has been learned has been forgotten.
B. F. Skinner

14.
Education begins a gentleman, conversation completes him.
Dr. Thomas Fuller

15.
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

16.
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

17.
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

18.
What does education often do? It makes a straight-cut ditch of a free, meandering brook.
Thoreau, Henry David

19.
Modern education has devoted itself to the teaching of impudence, and then we complain that we can no longer control our mobs.
Ruskin, John

20.
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

21.
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.

22.
Next in importance to freedom and justice is popular education, without which neither freedom nor justice can be permanently maintained.
James A. Garfield

23.
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.

24.
The very spring and root of honesty and virtue lie in good education.
Plutarch

25.
Education is when you read the fine print. Experience is what you get if you don't.
Pete Seeger

26.
America believes in education: the average professor earns more money in a year than a professional athlete earns in a whole week.
Evan Esar

27.
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

28.
I have never let my schooling interfere with my education.
Mark Twain

29.
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.
Weeks, Claire

30.
Bachelor's degrees make pretty good placemats if you get'em laminated.
Jeph Jacques

31.
It is only the ignorant who despise education.
Publilius Syrus

32.
Education is like a double-edged sword. It may be turned to dangerous uses if it is not properly handled.
Wu Ting-Fang

33.
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

34.
Good teaching is one-fourth preparation and three-fourths theater.
Gail Godwin

35.
The difficulty is to try and teach the multitude that something can be true and untrue at the same time.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

36.
A liberally educated person meets new ideas with curiosity and fascination. An illiberally educated person meets new ideas with fear.
Stockdale, James B.

37.
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

38.
Everyone has a right to a university degree in America, even if it's in Hamburger Technology.
Clive James

39.
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

40.
I just graduated and already I'm way behind.

41.
Education... has produced a vast population able to read but unable to distinguish what is worth reading.
G. M. Trevelyan

42.
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.

43.
It is possible to store the mind with a million facts and still be entirely uneducated.
Alec Bourne

44.
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

45.
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

46.
Education is a state-controlled manufactory of echoes.
Norman Douglas

47.
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

48.
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.

49.
School is where you go between when your parents can't take you, and industry can't take you.
Updike, John

50.
Education is the ability to listen to almost anything without losing your temper or your self-confidence.
Robert Frost
