Best Quotes about Education

1.
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

2.
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

3.
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

4.
Modern education has devoted itself to the teaching of impudence, and then we complain that we can no longer control our mobs.
Ruskin, John

5.
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

6.
Next in importance to freedom and justice is popular education, without which neither freedom nor justice can be permanently maintained.
James A. Garfield

7.
I have never let my schooling interfere with my education.
Mark Twain

8.
Education is a kind of continuing dialogue, and a dialogue assumes, in the nature of the case, different points of view.
Robert Hutchins

9.
Training is everything. The peach was once a bitter almond; cauliflower is nothing but cabbage with a college education.
Mark Twain

10.
College isn't the place to go for ideas.
Helen Keller

11.
The great thing, then, in all education, is to make our nervous system our ally instead of our enemy.
William James

12.
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.

13.
Good teaching is one-fourth preparation and three-fourths theater.
Gail Godwin

14.
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

15.
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

16.
Education is like a double-edged sword. It may be turned to dangerous uses if it is not properly handled.
Wu Ting-Fang

17.
To repeat what others have said, requires education; to challenge it, requires brains.
Mary Pettibone Poole

18.
Bachelor's degrees make pretty good placemats if you get'em laminated.
Jeph Jacques

19.
The only person who is educated is the one who has learned how to learn and change.
Rogers, Carl

20.
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.

21.
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

22.
Education is the power to think clearly, the power to act well in the worlds work, and the power to appreciate life.
Young, Brigham

23.
It is only the ignorant who despise education.
Publilius Syrus

24.
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

25.
The advantage of a classical education is that it enables you to despise the wealth that it prevents you from achieving.
Russell Green

26.
The direction in which education starts a man will determine his future life.
Plato

27.
Mistakes are a great educator when one is honest enough to admit them and willing to learn from them.

28.
The foundation of every state is the education of its youth.
Diogenes Laertius

29.
What does education often do? It makes a straight-cut ditch of a free, meandering brook.
Thoreau, Henry David

30.
The great aim of education is not knowledge but action.
Herbert Spencer

31.
Most people are willing to pay more to be amused than to be educated.
Savage, Robert C.

32.
Education is when you read the fine print. Experience is what you get if you don't.
Pete Seeger

33.
School is where you go between when your parents can't take you, and industry can't take you.
Updike, John

34.
The first condition of education is being able to put someone to wholesome and meaningful work.
Ruskin, John

35.
The world is run by C students.

36.
No one wants a good education. Everyone wants a good degree.
Rudolph, Lee

37.
The very spring and root of honesty and virtue lie in good education.
Plutarch

38.
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

39.
Every uneducated person is a caricature of himself.
Schlegel, Friedrich

40.
It is possible to store the mind with a million facts and still be entirely uneducated.
Alec Bourne

41.
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

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.
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

44.
The most important part of education is proper training in the nursery.
Plato

45.
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

46.
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.

47.
The best education in the world is that got by struggling to get a living.
Phillips, Wendell

48.
Real education must ultimately be limited to men who insist on knowing. The rest is mere sheep-herding.
Pound, Ezra

49.
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

50.
If nobody dropped out of eighth grade, who would hire the college graduates?
