Education Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Education

1.
Everyone has a right to a university degree in America, even if it's in Hamburger Technology.
Clive James

2.
Both class and race survive education, and neither should. What is education then? If it doesn't help a human being to recognize that humanity is humanity, what is it for? So you can make a bigger salary than other people?
Richards, Beah

3.
School is where you go between when your parents can't take you, and industry can't take you.
Updike, John

4.
I just graduated and already I'm way behind.

5.
Training is everything. The peach was once a bitter almond; cauliflower is nothing but cabbage with a college education.
Mark Twain

6.
I have never let my schooling interfere with my education.
Mark Twain

7.
To repeat what others have said, requires education; to challenge it, requires brains.
Mary Pettibone Poole

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

9.
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

10.
Education is the power to think clearly, the power to act well in the worlds work, and the power to appreciate life.
Young, Brigham

11.
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.

12.
The direction in which education starts a man will determine his future life.
Plato

13.
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.
Sullivan, Anne

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

16.
Education is a kind of continuing dialogue, and a dialogue assumes, in the nature of the case, different points of view.
Robert Hutchins

17.
It is only the ignorant who despise education.
Publilius Syrus

18.
Formal education will make you a living; self-education will make you a fortune.
Rohn, Jim

19.
The creative person is usually rebellious. He or she is the survivor of a trauma called education.

20.
An education obtained with money is worse than no education at all
Socrates

21.
Next in importance to freedom and justice is popular education, without which neither freedom nor justice can be permanently maintained.
James A. Garfield

22.
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

23.
The advantage of a classical education is that it enables you to despise the wealth that it prevents you from achieving.
Russell Green

24.
Education is like a double-edged sword. It may be turned to dangerous uses if it is not properly handled.
Wu Ting-Fang

25.
College isn't the place to go for ideas.
Helen Keller

26.
Education has for its object the formation of character.
Herbert Spencer

27.
Education is a state-controlled manufactory of echoes.
Norman Douglas

28.
Education is when you read the fine print. Experience is what you get if you don't.
Pete Seeger

29.
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

30.
If nobody dropped out of eighth grade, who would hire the college graduates?

31.
Fathers send their sons to college either because they went to college or because they didn't.
L. L. Henderson

32.
The number of books will grow continually, and one can predict that a time will come when it will be almost as difficult to learn anything from books as from the direct study of the whole universe. It will be almost as convenient to search for some bit of truth concealed in nature as it will be to find it hidden away in an immense multitude of bound volumes.
Denis Diderot

33.
Modern education has devoted itself to the teaching of impudence, and then we complain that we can no longer control our mobs.
Ruskin, John

34.
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

35.
Every uneducated person is a caricature of himself.
Schlegel, Friedrich

36.
America believes in education: the average professor earns more money in a year than a professional athlete earns in a whole week.
Evan Esar

37.
The most important part of teaching is to teach what it is to know.
Weil, Simone

38.
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

39.
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

40.
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

41.
Bachelor's degrees make pretty good placemats if you get'em laminated.
Jeph Jacques

42.
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

43.
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

44.
The first condition of education is being able to put someone to wholesome and meaningful work.
Ruskin, John

45.
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

46.
The only person who is educated is the one who has learned how to learn and change.
Rogers, Carl

47.
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.

48.
Education is what survives when what has been learned has been forgotten.
B. F. Skinner

49.
Education is a weapon, whose effect depends on who holds it in his hands and at whom it is aimed.
Stalin, Joseph

50.
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.
Anatole France
