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 Henry Huxley quotes
The great end of education is to discipline rather than furnish the mind; to train it to the use of its own powers, rather than fill it with the accumulations of others.
Tryon Edwards quotes
Education makes a greater difference between man and man than nature has made between man and brute.
John Adams quotes
No one has yet realized the wealth of sympathy, the kindness and generosity hidden in the soul of a child. The effort of every true education should be to unlock that treasure.
Emma Goldman quotes
Education is hanging around until you've caught on.
Robert Frost quotes
The aim of education is the knowledge, not of facts, but of values.
William S. Burroughs quotes
Education is a progressive discovery of our own ignorance.
Will Durant quotes
Dear Miss …I have read about sixteen pages of your manuscript ... I suffered exactly the same treatment at the hands of my teachers who disliked me for my independence and passed over me when they wanted assistants ... keep your manuscript for your sons and daughters, in order that they may derive consolation from it and not give a damn for what their teachers tell them or think of them. ... There is too much education altogether.
Albert Einstein quotes
Education is that which discloses to the wise and disguises from the foolish their lack of understanding.
Ambrose Bierce quotes
An education which does not cultivate the will is an education that depraves the mind.
Anatole France quotes
