Best Quotes about Education

1.
The very spring and root of honesty and virtue lie in good education.
Plutarch

2.
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

3.
Education... has produced a vast population able to read but unable to distinguish what is worth reading.
G. M. Trevelyan

4.
The only person who is educated is the one who has learned how to learn and change.
Rogers, Carl

5.
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.

6.
The advantage of a classical education is that it enables you to despise the wealth that it prevents you from achieving.
Russell Green

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

8.
An education obtained with money is worse than no education at all
Socrates

9.
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

10.
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

11.
Invest in yourself, in your education. There's nothing better.
Porter, Sylvia

12.
The great aim of education is not knowledge but action.
Herbert Spencer

13.
Modern education has devoted itself to the teaching of impudence, and then we complain that we can no longer control our mobs.
Ruskin, John

14.
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.

15.
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

16.
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

17.
Training is everything. The peach was once a bitter almond; cauliflower is nothing but cabbage with a college education.
Mark Twain

18.
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

19.
Fathers send their sons to college either because they went to college or because they didn't.
L. L. Henderson

20.
Mistakes are a great educator when one is honest enough to admit them and willing to learn from them.

21.
A liberally educated person meets new ideas with curiosity and fascination. An illiberally educated person meets new ideas with fear.
Stockdale, James B.

22.
The creative person is usually rebellious. He or she is the survivor of a trauma called education.

23.
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

24.
The foundation of every state is the education of its youth.
Diogenes Laertius

25.
Every uneducated person is a caricature of himself.
Schlegel, Friedrich

26.
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

27.
Education is what survives when what has been learned has been forgotten.
B. F. Skinner

28.
Education has for its object the formation of character.
Herbert Spencer

29.
No one wants a good education. Everyone wants a good degree.
Rudolph, Lee

30.
What does education often do? It makes a straight-cut ditch of a free, meandering brook.
Thoreau, Henry David

31.
School is where you go between when your parents can't take you, and industry can't take you.
Updike, John

32.
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

33.
Education is a kind of continuing dialogue, and a dialogue assumes, in the nature of the case, different points of view.
Robert Hutchins

34.
Next in importance to freedom and justice is popular education, without which neither freedom nor justice can be permanently maintained.
James A. Garfield

35.
To repeat what others have said, requires education; to challenge it, requires brains.
Mary Pettibone Poole

36.
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.

37.
I just graduated and already I'm way behind.

38.
Education is a weapon, whose effect depends on who holds it in his hands and at whom it is aimed.
Stalin, Joseph

39.
Education is the power to think clearly, the power to act well in the worlds work, and the power to appreciate life.
Young, Brigham

40.
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

41.
Education begins a gentleman, conversation completes him.
Dr. Thomas Fuller

42.
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.

43.
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.

44.
She knows what is the best purpose of education: not to be frightened by the best but to treat it as part of daily life.
John Mason Brown

45.
I have never let my schooling interfere with my education.
Mark Twain

46.
The most important part of education is proper training in the nursery.
Plato

47.
Education is a state-controlled manufactory of echoes.
Norman Douglas

48.
College isn't the place to go for ideas.
Helen Keller

49.
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

50.
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.
