Education

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
Education Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Education

1.
Modern education has devoted itself to the teaching of impudence, and then we complain that we can no longer control our mobs.
Ruskin, John

2.
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

3.
Invest in yourself, in your education. There's nothing better.
Porter, Sylvia

4.
Education is a weapon, whose effect depends on who holds it in his hands and at whom it is aimed.
Stalin, Joseph

5.
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.

6.
Education is what survives when what has been learned has been forgotten.
B. F. Skinner

7.
Training is everything. The peach was once a bitter almond; cauliflower is nothing but cabbage with a college education.
Mark Twain

8.
Education is the power to think clearly, the power to act well in the worlds work, and the power to appreciate life.
Young, Brigham

9.
The only person who is educated is the one who has learned how to learn and change.
Rogers, Carl

10.
The advantage of a classical education is that it enables you to despise the wealth that it prevents you from achieving.
Russell Green

11.
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

12.
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

13.
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

14.
The creative person is usually rebellious. He or she is the survivor of a trauma called education.

15.
The very spring and root of honesty and virtue lie in good education.
Plutarch

16.
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.

17.
Education is a kind of continuing dialogue, and a dialogue assumes, in the nature of the case, different points of view.
Robert Hutchins

18.
The world is run by C students.

19.
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

20.
Education... has produced a vast population able to read but unable to distinguish what is worth reading.
G. M. Trevelyan

21.
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

22.
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.

23.
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

24.
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.

25.
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

26.
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

27.
It is possible to store the mind with a million facts and still be entirely uneducated.
Alec Bourne

28.
Real education must ultimately be limited to men who insist on knowing. The rest is mere sheep-herding.
Pound, Ezra

29.
Education begins a gentleman, conversation completes him.
Dr. Thomas Fuller

30.
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

31.
Mistakes are a great educator when one is honest enough to admit them and willing to learn from them.

32.
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

33.
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

34.
Education is the ability to listen to almost anything without losing your temper or your self-confidence.
Robert Frost

35.
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

36.
The most important part of teaching is to teach what it is to know.
Weil, Simone

37.
To repeat what others have said, requires education; to challenge it, requires brains.
Mary Pettibone Poole

38.
Fathers send their sons to college either because they went to college or because they didn't.
L. L. Henderson

39.
No one wants a good education. Everyone wants a good degree.
Rudolph, Lee

40.
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.

41.
Most people are willing to pay more to be amused than to be educated.
Savage, Robert C.

42.
The direction in which education starts a man will determine his future life.
Plato

43.
Bachelor's degrees make pretty good placemats if you get'em laminated.
Jeph Jacques

44.
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

45.
Education is when you read the fine print. Experience is what you get if you don't.
Pete Seeger

46.
The child who desires education will be bettered by it; the child who dislikes it disgraced.
Ruskin, John

47.
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

48.
Good teaching is one-fourth preparation and three-fourths theater.
Gail Godwin

49.
If nobody dropped out of eighth grade, who would hire the college graduates?

50.
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
