Education Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Education

1.
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

2.
An education obtained with money is worse than no education at all
Socrates

3.
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

4.
The great aim of education is not knowledge but action.
Herbert Spencer

5.
The great thing, then, in all education, is to make our nervous system our ally instead of our enemy.
William James

6.
The most important part of education is proper training in the nursery.
Plato

7.
The very spring and root of honesty and virtue lie in good education.
Plutarch

8.
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

9.
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

10.
The best education in the world is that got by struggling to get a living.
Phillips, Wendell

11.
Education is when you read the fine print. Experience is what you get if you don't.
Pete Seeger

12.
Everyone has a right to a university degree in America, even if it's in Hamburger Technology.
Clive James

13.
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.

14.
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

15.
It is only the ignorant who despise education.
Publilius Syrus

16.
Invest in yourself, in your education. There's nothing better.
Porter, Sylvia

17.
The difficulty is to try and teach the multitude that something can be true and untrue at the same time.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

18.
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

19.
College isn't the place to go for ideas.
Helen Keller

20.
The most important part of teaching is to teach what it is to know.
Weil, Simone

21.
Formal education will make you a living; self-education will make you a fortune.
Rohn, Jim

22.
Education... has produced a vast population able to read but unable to distinguish what is worth reading.
G. M. Trevelyan

23.
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

24.
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

25.
Training is everything. The peach was once a bitter almond; cauliflower is nothing but cabbage with a college education.
Mark Twain

26.
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.

27.
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

28.
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

29.
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

30.
The advantage of a classical education is that it enables you to despise the wealth that it prevents you from achieving.
Russell Green

31.
Education is the ability to listen to almost anything without losing your temper or your self-confidence.
Robert Frost

32.
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.

33.
Most people are willing to pay more to be amused than to be educated.
Savage, Robert C.

34.
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

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

36.
The first condition of education is being able to put someone to wholesome and meaningful work.
Ruskin, John

37.
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

38.
Bachelor's degrees make pretty good placemats if you get'em laminated.
Jeph Jacques

39.
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

40.
Education is what survives when what has been learned has been forgotten.
B. F. Skinner

41.
It is possible to store the mind with a million facts and still be entirely uneducated.
Alec Bourne

42.
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

43.
I just graduated and already I'm way behind.

44.
Fathers send their sons to college either because they went to college or because they didn't.
L. L. Henderson

45.
America believes in education: the average professor earns more money in a year than a professional athlete earns in a whole week.
Evan Esar

46.
I have never let my schooling interfere with my education.
Mark Twain

47.
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

48.
An effeminate education weakens both the mind and the body.
Quinet, Edgar

49.
Education is like a double-edged sword. It may be turned to dangerous uses if it is not properly handled.
Wu Ting-Fang

50.
Modern education has devoted itself to the teaching of impudence, and then we complain that we can no longer control our mobs.
Ruskin, John
