Education Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Education

1.
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

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

4.
Training is everything. The peach was once a bitter almond; cauliflower is nothing but cabbage with a college education.
Mark Twain

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

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

8.
An effeminate education weakens both the mind and the body.
Quinet, Edgar

9.
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

10.
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

11.
Education is what survives when what has been learned has been forgotten.
B. F. Skinner

12.
College isn't the place to go for ideas.
Helen Keller

13.
America believes in education: the average professor earns more money in a year than a professional athlete earns in a whole week.
Evan Esar

14.
To repeat what others have said, requires education; to challenge it, requires brains.
Mary Pettibone Poole

15.
Education begins a gentleman, conversation completes him.
Dr. Thomas Fuller

16.
Everyone has a right to a university degree in America, even if it's in Hamburger Technology.
Clive James

17.
Our attitude towards ourselves should be to be satiable in learning and towards others to be tireless in teaching.
Zedong, Mao

18.
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.

19.
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

20.
The difficulty is to try and teach the multitude that something can be true and untrue at the same time.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

21.
The direction in which education starts a man will determine his future life.
Plato

22.
A liberally educated person meets new ideas with curiosity and fascination. An illiberally educated person meets new ideas with fear.
Stockdale, James B.

23.
The child who desires education will be bettered by it; the child who dislikes it disgraced.
Ruskin, John

24.
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

25.
The great aim of education is not knowledge but action.
Herbert Spencer

26.
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

27.
Education is the ability to listen to almost anything without losing your temper or your self-confidence.
Robert Frost

28.
The first condition of education is being able to put someone to wholesome and meaningful work.
Ruskin, John

29.
Fathers send their sons to college either because they went to college or because they didn't.
L. L. Henderson

30.
Education is a kind of continuing dialogue, and a dialogue assumes, in the nature of the case, different points of view.
Robert Hutchins

31.
The great thing, then, in all education, is to make our nervous system our ally instead of our enemy.
William James

32.
Invest in yourself, in your education. There's nothing better.
Porter, Sylvia

33.
The best education in the world is that got by struggling to get a living.
Phillips, Wendell

34.
Modern education has devoted itself to the teaching of impudence, and then we complain that we can no longer control our mobs.
Ruskin, John

35.
Education... has produced a vast population able to read but unable to distinguish what is worth reading.
G. M. Trevelyan

36.
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

37.
Formal education will make you a living; self-education will make you a fortune.
Rohn, Jim

38.
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

39.
The creative person is usually rebellious. He or she is the survivor of a trauma called education.

40.
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

41.
The very spring and root of honesty and virtue lie in good education.
Plutarch

42.
Bachelor's degrees make pretty good placemats if you get'em laminated.
Jeph Jacques

43.
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

44.
Next in importance to freedom and justice is popular education, without which neither freedom nor justice can be permanently maintained.
James A. Garfield

45.
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.

46.
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

47.
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.

48.
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

49.
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

50.
Every uneducated person is a caricature of himself.
Schlegel, Friedrich
