Education

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

Best Quotes about Education

1.
What does education often do? It makes a straight-cut ditch of a free, meandering brook.
Thoreau, Henry David

2.
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.

3.
America believes in education: the average professor earns more money in a year than a professional athlete earns in a whole week.
Evan Esar

4.
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

5.
Education begins a gentleman, conversation completes him.
Dr. Thomas Fuller

6.
An education obtained with money is worse than no education at all
Socrates

7.
Education is what survives when what has been learned has been forgotten.
B. F. Skinner

8.
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

9.
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

10.
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

11.
An effeminate education weakens both the mind and the body.
Quinet, Edgar

12.
Education is the power to think clearly, the power to act well in the worlds work, and the power to appreciate life.
Young, Brigham

13.
Education is a kind of continuing dialogue, and a dialogue assumes, in the nature of the case, different points of view.
Robert Hutchins

14.
It is only the ignorant who despise education.
Publilius Syrus

15.
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

16.
Modern education has devoted itself to the teaching of impudence, and then we complain that we can no longer control our mobs.
Ruskin, John

17.
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.

18.
Everyone has a right to a university degree in America, even if it's in Hamburger Technology.
Clive James

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

20.
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

21.
Invest in yourself, in your education. There's nothing better.
Porter, Sylvia

22.
The great aim of education is not knowledge but action.
Herbert Spencer

23.
School is where you go between when your parents can't take you, and industry can't take you.
Updike, John

24.
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.

25.
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

26.
To repeat what others have said, requires education; to challenge it, requires brains.
Mary Pettibone Poole

27.
If nobody dropped out of eighth grade, who would hire the college graduates?

28.
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

29.
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

30.
The child who desires education will be bettered by it; the child who dislikes it disgraced.
Ruskin, John

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

32.
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

33.
I have never let my schooling interfere with my education.
Mark Twain

34.
Our attitude towards ourselves should be to be satiable in learning and towards others to be tireless in teaching.
Zedong, Mao

35.
The best education in the world is that got by struggling to get a living.
Phillips, Wendell

36.
The only person who is educated is the one who has learned how to learn and change.
Rogers, Carl

37.
Education is the ability to listen to almost anything without losing your temper or your self-confidence.
Robert Frost

38.
Now, if the principle of toleration were once admitted into classical education --if it were admitted that the great object is to read and enjoy a language, and the stress of the teaching were placed on the few things absolutely essential to this result, if the tortoise were allowed time to creep, and the bird permitted to fly, and the fish to swim, towards the enchanted and divine sources of Helicon --all might in their own way arrive there, and rejoice in its flowers, its beauty, and its coolness.
Stowe, Harriet Beecher

39.
Next in importance to freedom and justice is popular education, without which neither freedom nor justice can be permanently maintained.
James A. Garfield

40.
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

41.
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.

42.
The very spring and root of honesty and virtue lie in good education.
Plutarch

43.
Every uneducated person is a caricature of himself.
Schlegel, Friedrich

44.
Education is when you read the fine print. Experience is what you get if you don't.
Pete Seeger

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

47.
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

48.
No one wants a good education. Everyone wants a good degree.
Rudolph, Lee

49.
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

50.
Education has for its object the formation of character.
Herbert Spencer
