Education quotes by Clyde Tombaugh

Adler
Education quotes by Mortimer J. Adler

#22. The best education is self-discipline with good principles through human university. - Author: Uzoma Nnadi
Education quotes by Uzoma Nnadi
#23. Education is at present concerned with outward efficiency, and it utterly disregards, or deliberately perverts, the inward nature of man; it develops only one part of him and leaves the rest to drag along as best it can.

Our inner confusion, antagonism and fear ever overcome the outer structure of society, however nobly conceived and cunningly built. When there is not the right kind of education we destroy one another, and physical security for every individual is denied.

To educate the student rightly is to help him to understand the total process of himself; for it is only when there is integration of the mind and heart in everyday action that there can be intelligence and inward transformation.

While offering information and technical training, education should above all encourage an integrated outlook on life; it should help the student to recognize and break down in himself all social distinctions and prejudices, and discourage the acquisitive pursuit of power and domination. It should encourage the right kind of self-observation and the experiencing of life as a whole, which is not to give significance to the part, to the "me" and the "mine", but to help the mind to go above and beyond itself to discover the real.

Freedom comes into being only through self-knowledge in one's daily occupations, that is, in one's relationship with people, with things, with ideas and with nature. If the educator is helping the student to be integ - Author: Jiddu Krishnamurti
Education quotes by Jiddu Krishnamurti
#24. Having a coach or mentor is nothing more than sharing life's experiences, no amount of education can substitute true life experience - Author: Lachlan McPherson
Education quotes by Lachlan McPherson
#25. (The error in reasoning is a bit from wishful thinking, because education is considered "good"; I wonder why people don't make the epiphenomenal association between the wealth of a country and something "bad," say, decadence, and infer that decadence, or some other disease of wealth like a high suicide rate, also generates wealth.) - Author: Nassim Nicholas Taleb
Education quotes by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
#26. O teach me how I should forget to think (1.1.224) - Author: William Shakespeare
Education quotes by William Shakespeare
#27. Curiously enough, it seems that at times the spiritual side prevails, and then the materialistic side - in wave-like motions following each other. ...At one time the full flood of materialistic ideas prevails, and everything in this life - prosperity, the education which procures more pleasures, more food - will become glorious at first and then that will degrade and degenerate. Along with the prosperity will rise to white heat all the inborn jealousies and hatreds of the human race. Competition and merciless cruelty will be the watchword of the day. To quote a very commonplace and not very elegant English proverb, "Everyone for himself, and the devil take the hindmost", becomes the motto of the day. Then people think that the whole scheme of life is a failure. And the world would be destroyed had not spirituality come to the rescue and lent a helping hand to the sinking world. Then the world gets new hope and finds a new basis for a new building, and another wave of spirituality comes, which in time again declines. As a rule, spirituality brings a class of men who lay exclusive claim to the special powers of the world. The immediate effect of this is a reaction towards materialism, which opens the door to scores of exclusive claims, until the time comes when not only all the spiritual powers of the race, but all its material powers and privileges are centered in the hands of a very few; and these few, standing on the necks of the masses of the people, want to rule them. Then - Author: Swami Vivekananda
Education quotes by Swami Vivekananda

#30. When we introduce new technologies into our classrooms we are teaching our students twice. - Author: Michael Joseph Brown
Education quotes by Michael Joseph Brown
#31. The beginning [of a journey] is a terrible time to plan. It's the moment of greatest ignorance. In self-directed education, a lot of the value comes from exploiting opportunities that arise well out to sea, once I've seen some things and begun the learning process. - Author: James Marcus Bach
Education quotes by James Marcus Bach
#32. If you want to be happy in the future, be happy now. - Author: Debasish Mridha

#34. There's much sentiment and educational value to be found in our inherited traditions. - Author: Fennel Hudson
Education quotes by Fennel Hudson
#35. Man is a willful and covetous animal, who makes use of his intellect to satisfy his inclinations, but who cares nothing for truth, who rebels against personal discipline, who hates disinterested thought and the idea of self-education. Wisdom offends him, because it rouses in him disturbance and confusion, and because he will not see himself as he is. - Author: Henri Frederic Amiel
Education quotes by Henri Frederic Amiel

Education quotes by William Glasser

Education quotes by Sarah Fielding
#38. Data is not information, information is not knowledge, knowledge is not understanding, understanding is not wisdom. - Author: Clifford Stoll
Education quotes by Clifford Stoll
#39. Most remarks made by children consist of correct ideas very badly expressed. A good teacher will be very wary of saying 'No, that's wrong.' Rather, he will try to discover the correct idea behind the inadequate expression. This is one of the most important principles in the whole of the art of teaching. - Author: W.W. Sawyer
Education quotes by W.W. Sawyer
#40. In my opinion, the greatest single failure of American education is that students come away unable to distinguish between a symbol and the thing the symbol stands for. - Author: Paul Lutus
Education quotes by Paul Lutus
#41. Cutting the deficit by gutting our investments in innovation and education is like lightening an overloaded airplane by removing its engine. It may make you feel like you're flying high at first, but it won't take long before you feel the impact. - Author: Barack Obama
Education quotes by Barack Obama
#42. The goal of education by the grace of God is to create self-governing people who live under the Law of God for the glory of Christ. - Author: Tim Yarbrough
Education quotes by Tim Yarbrough

Education quotes by John Dewey

Education quotes by Kevin McCarthy
#45. Smile without reason, because you are the reason. - Author: Debasish Mridha
Education quotes by Debasish Mridha
#46. Thus, experience has ever shown, that education, as well as religion, aristocracy, as well as democracy and monarchy, are, singly, totally inadequate to the business of restraining the passions of men, of preserving a steady government, and protecting the lives, liberties, and properties of the people ... Religion, superstition, oaths, education, laws, all give way before passions, interest, and power, which can be resisted only by passions, interest, and power. - Author: John Adams
Education quotes by John Adams
#47. Letting things slide is always the easiest thing to do, in parenting no less than in banking, public education, and environmental protection. A lack of discipline is apparent these days in just about every aspect of American society. Why? This should be is a much larger question, one to ponder as we take out the garbage and tie our kids' shoes. - Author: Elizabeth Kolbert
Education quotes by Elizabeth Kolbert
#48. Real education is a radical process. It thumps you on the head until everything you know makes no sense anymore. Then you run around picking up the pieces of your head and picking them back together. The pieces never go back together in the same way. - Author: Debbie Millman
Education quotes by Debbie Millman
#49. Love is the best religion;
it only cares and never kills anyone. - Author: Debasish Mridha
Education quotes by Debasish Mridha
#50. People are not saints just because they haven't got much money or education. - Author: Robertson Davies
Education quotes by Robertson Davies
#51. You can't stand for too many things. You can't use the bully pulpit for too many things. So, I promise you, every day, I am going to talk about jobs, spending, and education. - Author: Meg Whitman
Education quotes by Meg Whitman
#52. Education must be taken out of the hands of rich illiterates, third rate politicians, and put where it belongs: in the care of scholars. At present the whole University system is rotten to the core, and an appalling waste of time, energy and money ... - Author: Katherine Anne Porter
Education quotes by Katherine Anne Porter

Education quotes by Debasish Mridha
#56. Today education has become a training ground for competition. - Author: Parker J. Palmer
Education quotes by Parker J. Palmer
#57. Health education emphasizing risks is a form of pedagogy, which, like other forms, serves to legitimize ideologies and social practices. Risk discourse in the public health sphere allows the state, as the owner of knowledge, to exert power of the bodies of its citizens. Risk discourse, therefore, especially when it emphasizes lifestyle risks, serves as an effective Foucauldian agent of surveillance and control that is difficult to challenge because of its manifest benevolent goal of maintaining standards of health. In doing so, it draws attention away from the structural causes of ill-health. - Author: Deborah Lupton
Education quotes by Deborah Lupton
#58. After all, you can't hang out at the park with your kid and shop for coordinating head scarves and flip-flops (or whatever else Bethany does to fill the endless expanse of nonworking days) without a college education.
Oh, that's right. You totally can. - Author: Megan McCafferty
Education quotes by Megan McCafferty
#59. The moment a person feels he has nothing left to learn is the moment life prepares to hit him hard enough to correct such ignorance. - Author: Richelle E. Goodrich
Education quotes by Richelle E. Goodrich
#60. The spiritual kinship between Lincoln and Whitman was founded upon their Americanism, their essential Westernism. Whitman had grown up without much formal education; Lincoln had scarcely any education. One had become the notable poet of the day; one the orator of the Gettsyburg Address. It was inevitable that Whitman as a poet should turn with a feeling of kinship to Lincoln, and even without any association or contact feel that Lincoln was his. - Author: Edgar Lee Masters
Education quotes by Edgar Lee Masters
#61. Above all you must study hard. Very few in Pakistan have the
opportunity you now have and you must take advantage of it. Never forget that
the money it is costing to send you comes from the land, from the people who
sweat and toil on those lands. You will owe a debt to them, a debt you can repay
with God's blessing by using your education to better their lives. - Author: Benazir Bhutto
Education quotes by Benazir Bhutto
#62. Many of the seminal social issues of our time - poverty, lack of education, human trafficking, war and torture, domestic abuse - can track their way to our theology of, or beliefs about, women, which has its roots in what we believe about the nature, purposes, and character of God. - Author: Sarah Bessey
Education quotes by Sarah Bessey
#63. A man, whilst he is dreaming, believes in his dream; he is undeceived only when he is awakened from his slumber. - Author: Mahatma Gandhi
Education quotes by Mahatma Gandhi

Education quotes by Debasish Mridha
#66. The moon is a poem in a starry night. - Author: Debasish Mridha
Education quotes by Debasish Mridha
#67. One of the most common ways to overcome resistance to change is to educate people about it beforehand. Communication of ideas helps people see the need for and the logic of a change. The education process can involve one-on-one discussions, presentations to groups, or memos and reports. - Author: John P. Kotter
Education quotes by John P. Kotter
#68. I always felt that I came up short in the education department, but I've come to the conclusion that we all get an education. - Author: Michael J. Fox
Education quotes by Michael J. Fox
#69. Teachers say their schools of education did not adequately prepare them for the classroom. They would have welcomed more mentoring and feedback in their early years. - Author: Arne Duncan
Education quotes by Arne Duncan
#70. Today's new is tomorrow's old, so don't hate the old. - Author: Debasish Mridha
Education quotes by Debasish Mridha
#71. [N]early every creationist debater will mention the second law of thermodynamics and argue that complex systems like the earth and life cannot evolve, because the second law seems to say that everything in nature is running down and losing energy, not getting more complex. But that's NOT what the second law says; every creationist has heard this but refuses to acknowledge it. The second law only applies to closed systems, like a sealed jar of heated gases that gradually cools down and loses energy. But the earth is not a closed system
it constantly gets new energy from the sun, and this (through photosynthesis) is what powers life and makes it possible for life to become more complex and evolve. It seems odd that the creationists continue to misuse the second law of thermodynamics when they have been corrected over and over again, but the reason is simple: it sounds impressive to their audience with limited science education, and if a snow job works, you stay with it. - Author: Donald R. Prothero
Education quotes by Donald R. Prothero
#72. A good education prepares you well for anything. - Author: Marv Levy
Education quotes by Marv Levy
#73. I'm very jealous of my daughter's education. She's been inspired by her teachers, and nobody inspired me as a teenager. - Author: Jenny Eclair
Education quotes by Jenny Eclair
#74. You live because you have to learn, and learn because you have to live. - Author: Matshona Dhliwayo
Education quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#75. When there is nonjudgmental love then there is no giving up. - Author: Debasish Mridha
Education quotes by Debasish Mridha
#76. Of course, three classes is full time, so they'd have to give me the benefits package which would kill them. Screw the adjuncts, right? We're the monks of higher education. How much do you make? - Author: Wally Lamb
Education quotes by Wally Lamb
#77. I'd been looking around the world for clues as to what other countries were doing right, but the important distinctions were not about spending or local control or curriculum; none of that mattered very much. Policies mostly worked in the margins. The fundamental difference was a psychological one. The education superpowers believed in rigor. People in these countries agreed on the purpose of school: School existed to help students master complex academic material. Other things mattered, too, but nothing mattered as much. - Author: Amanda Ripley
Education quotes by Amanda Ripley
#78. A man is wise not because of his intelligence, but because of his understanding and kindness. - Author: Debasish Mridha
Education quotes by Debasish Mridha
#79. but the attitude reading and writing
gives you - Author: Thylias Moss
Education quotes by Thylias Moss
#80. To explain the Use of Education, no Method can be more effectual, than to shew what dull Mistakes and silly Notions Men are apt to be led into for Want of it. These Mistakes are so numerous, that if we were to undertake to divulge all the Errors that Men of no Knowledge in the Sciences labour under, the shortest Way would be to publish a compleat System of Natural Philosophy, which Learning, as it may be acquired by reading the different Books, which have already been wrote upon that Subject, in this Aera of the Sciences, such an Undertaking would be quite needless at this Time, even supposing the Author capable of that laborious Work. If the following Sheets do but serve to divest Men of some of those unreasonable Obstinacies with which they and their Forefathers have long been prepossessed, the Time will be well laid out, both of the Writer and Reader. - Author: Stephen Fovargue
Education quotes by Stephen Fovargue
#81. Reading is an escape, an education, a delving into the brain of another human being on such an intimate level that every nuance of thought, every snapping of synapse, every slippery desire of the author is laid open before you like, well, a book. - Author: Cynthia Heimel
Education quotes by Cynthia Heimel
#82. Dr. Ben Carson has the most moving personal narrative in modern presidential politics. His mother, one of 24 children, had only a third-grade education. She was married at age 13, bore Ben and his brother, and then raised the boys as an impoverished single mother in Detroit. As a young boy, Carson was a terrible student. - Author: Nicholas Kristof
Education quotes by Nicholas Kristof
#83. What is so inspiring about [Louis] Brandeis's writing is he saw it as a tool for democratic education. He would say things like the opinion is now convincing, now can we make it more instructive, after he'd gone through ten drafts. - Author: Jeffrey Rosen
Education quotes by Jeffrey Rosen
#84. Even though the money is great and the fame is great, you still have a lot of disenfranchised young men that are participating in the NFL that are not very happy. A lot of them are very bitter. A lot them are very angry. So many of them have had no fathers and no home life, and basically, no education. - Author: Jim Brown
Education quotes by Jim Brown
#85. Love what you do; do what you love. Your dreams will come true; you will get what you deserve. - Author: Debasish Mridha
Education quotes by Debasish Mridha
#86. Really, this horrid House of Commons quite ruins our husbands for us. I think the Lower House by far the greatest blow to a happy married life that there has been since that terrible thing called the Higher Education of Women was invented. - Author: Oscar Wilde
Education quotes by Oscar Wilde
#87. Privatization is a neoliberal and imperialist plan. Health can't be privatized because it is a fundamental human right, nor can education, water, electricity and other public services. They can't be surrendered to private capital that denies the people from their rights. - Author: Hugo Chavez
Education quotes by Hugo Chavez
#88. I want to support the whole idea of the humanities and teaching the humanities as being something that - even if it can't be quantitatively measured as other subjects - it's as fundamental to all education. - Author: Tom Stoppard
Education quotes by Tom Stoppard
#89. Today, 8 million adult Americans, more than the entire population of Michigan, have not finished 5 years of school. Nearly 20 million have not finished 8 years of school. Nearly 54 million - more than one-quarter of all America - have not even finished high school. - Author: Lyndon B. Johnson
Education quotes by Lyndon B. Johnson
#90. This is about putting education absolutely in the centre of enterprise and then using the traditions of Birmingham to inspire and grow. If you have knowledge and business linked together you will grow well, you go further down the innovative path and actually you create more and more jobs. Those jobs will only be available for people with skills but they will be real sustainable employments. That is how important innovation is. - Author: Digby Jones, Baron Jones Of Birmingham
Education quotes by Digby Jones, Baron Jones Of Birmingham
#91. It is only through such real-life daily struggles and challenges that a genuine sensitivity to human rights can be inculcated. This is a truth that is not limited to school education: it applies to all of us. - Author: Daisaku Ikeda
Education quotes by Daisaku Ikeda
#92. Better to have an education than a husband. At least you know what you're getting with the education. - Author: Morgan L. Busse
Education quotes by Morgan L. Busse
#93. Oscar Wilde was born in Dublin, on the 15th October, 1856, so that he is now about twenty-six years of age, but brief as has been his career, it has been full of promise for the future. The son of highly intellectual parents, he has had an exceptional education, has travelled much in wild and remote, through classic lands, and in the course of these journeys has learnt to appreciate the beauties of the old authors, in whose works whilst at college he attained exceptional proficiency. But his naturally enthusiastic temperament teaches him to hope for better in the future than has been achieved in the past, and to see how vast will be the influence of Art and Literature on the coming democracy of Intellect, when education and culture shall have taught men to pride themselves on what they have done, and not alone on the deeds of their ancestors. - Author: Walter Hamilton
Education quotes by Walter Hamilton
#94. This type of man who is devoted to the study of wisdom is always most unlucky in everything, and particularly when it comes to procreating children; I imagine this is because Nature wants to ensure that the evils of wisdom shall not spread further throughout mankind. - Author: Desiderius Erasmus
Education quotes by Desiderius Erasmus
#95. Miss Wormwood: Calvin, your test was an absolute disgrace! It's obvious you haven't read any of the material. Our first president was not Chef Boy-Ar-Dee and you ought to be ashamed to have turned in such preposterous answers!
Calvin: I just don't test well. - Author: Bill Watterson
Education quotes by Bill Watterson
#96. A student should not be taught more than he can think about. - Author: Alfred North Whitehead
Education quotes by Alfred North Whitehead
#97. All who have meditated on the art of governing mankind have been convinced that the fate of empires depends on the education of youth. - Author: Aristotle.
Education quotes by Aristotle.
#98. Education is important! That piece of paper is your key to success - Author: Queen Brown
Education quotes by Queen Brown
#99. If everyone practices the power of their love, there will be happiness and no war. - Author: Debasish Mridha
Education quotes by Debasish Mridha
#100. Water conservation goes hand in hand with education. Teaching people that if you literally run the water while you brush your teeth - we go through 602 million gallons a day of waste in the United States because people are used to hearing the water run while they brush their teeth. - Author: Ian Somerhalder
Education quotes by Ian Somerhalder
#101. It was during my study in Israel that I came to the realization that most of what I had learned in my courses in religion in the United States was outdated or in error. In order to understand what the biblical position is on any subject and, particularly on the subject of sex, one has to do it from a Hebrew perspective. - Author: Roy B. Blizzard
Education quotes by Roy B. Blizzard
#102. I am now past the craggy paths of study, and come to the flowery plains of honor and reputation. - Author: Ben Jonson
Education quotes by Ben Jonson
#103. Inner peace begins when nothing can disturb the calmness of your mind. - Author: Debasish Mridha
Education quotes by Debasish Mridha
#104. The real struggle is not between East and West, or capitalism and communism, but between education and propaganda. - Author: Martin Buber
Education quotes by Martin Buber
#105. The whole thing about elections in Liberia - it's not about the way you take care of people, it's not about the heart, it's about education, according to the perception of some people. - Author: George Weah
Education quotes by George Weah
#106. I too acknowledge the all-out omnipotence of early culture and nature; hereby we have either a doddered dwarf-bush, or a high-towering, wide-shadowing tree! either a sick yellow cabbage, or an edible luxuriant green one. Of a truth, it is the duty of all men, especially of all philosophers, to note down with accuracy the characteristic circumstances of their education,
what furthered, what hindered, what in any way modified it. - Author: Thomas Carlyle
Education quotes by Thomas Carlyle
#107. Obedience is the primary object of all sound education. - Author: Elizabeth Missing Sewell
Education quotes by Elizabeth Missing Sewell
#108. The oldest problem in economic education is how to exclude the incompetent. A certain glib mastery of verbiage-the ability to speak portentously and sententiously about the relation of money supply to the price level-is easy for the unlearned and may even be aided by a mildly enfeebled intellect. The requirement that there be ability to master difficult models, including ones for which mathematical competence is required, is a highly useful screening device. - Author: John Kenneth Galbraith
Education quotes by John Kenneth Galbraith
#109. Analyzing everyday situations using a systematic approach similar to that utilized by physicians when investigating a medical mysteries can result in better choices. - Author: Dr. Russ Hill
Education quotes by Dr. Russ Hill
#110. Sometimes I get intimidated by people, intellectuals, because I don't have a great education. The only thing I feel helps me compete with all these people, people with degrees from Harvard, that you're thrown in with and have to work with, is that I'm grounded. - Author: Andie MacDowell
Education quotes by Andie MacDowell
#111. Dreams do come true, even for someone who couldn't speak English and never had a music lesson or much of an education. - Author: Lawrence Welk
Education quotes by Lawrence Welk
#112. Live like the universe is your beloved home, love like everyone is your closest friend. - Author: Debasish Mridha
Education quotes by Debasish Mridha
#113. It's time for the US to widen its circle of learning, not to circle its wagons against hostile ideas in education reform. - Author: Andy Hargreaves
Education quotes by Andy Hargreaves
#114. You know there is a problem with the education system when you realize that out of the 3 R's only one begins with an R. - Author: Dennis Miller
Education quotes by Dennis Miller
#115. Classics is a subject that exists in that gap between us and the word of the Greeks and Romans. The questions raised by Classics are the questions raised by our distance from 'their' world, and at the same time by our closeness to it, and its familiarity to us. In our museums, in our literature, languages, culture, and ways of thinking. The aim of Classics is not only to discover or uncover the ancient world (though that is part of it, as the rediscovery of Bassae, or the excavation of the furthest outposts of the Roman empire on the Scottish borders, shows). Its aim is to also define and debate our relationship to that world. - Author: Mary Beard
Education quotes by Mary Beard
#116. I'm not a non-profit person. I think of myself as an entrepreneur who wants to work on global education. - Author: Adam Braun
Education quotes by Adam Braun
#117. We test students right after they read something mostly to ensure that they have in fact read it. From this, many have drawn the erroneous conclusion that the only good that can be extracted from their reading is that which can be displayed on or measured by a test. This is wildly inaccurate. Most of the good your reading and education has done for you is not something you can recall at all. - Author: Douglas Wilson
Education quotes by Douglas Wilson
#118. What we suffer from today is an excess of education. - Author: Adolf Hitler
Education quotes by Adolf Hitler
#119. I finally understood that I didn't lack pen and paper but my own
memorizing mind. It had been given away with a hundred poems, called
rote learning, old-fashioned, backward, an enemy of creative thinking,
a great human gift disowned. - Author: Grace Paley
Education quotes by Grace Paley
#120. 'Doctor Who' was my first telly job, and before that I did a lot of theatre in education, children's theatre. - Author: Sophie Aldred
Education quotes by Sophie Aldred
#121. The Seductive Lure of Socialism Here I encounter the most popular fallacy of our times. It is not considered sufficient that the law should be just; it must be philanthropic. Nor is it sufficient that the law should guarantee to every citizen the free and inoffensive use of his faculties for physical, intellectual, and moral self-improvement. Instead, it is demanded that the law should directly extend welfare, education, and morality throughout the nation. This is the seductive lure of socialism. And I repeat again: These two uses of the law are in direct contradiction to each other. We must choose between them. A citizen cannot at the same time be free and not free. - Author: Frederic Bastiat
Education quotes by Frederic Bastiat

Education quotes by Jamie Bamber
#125. There is a subconscious way of taking violence as a way of expression, as a normality, and it has a lot of effects in the youth in the way they absorb education and what they hope to get out of life. - Author: Salma Hayek
Education quotes by Salma Hayek
#126. Education is our basic right. Not just in the West; Islam too has given us this right. Islam says every girl and every boy should go to school. In the Quran it is written, God wants us to have knowledge. He wants us to know why the sky is blue and about oceans and stars. I know it's a big struggle - around the world there are fifty-seven million children who are not in primary school, thirty-two million of them girls. - Author: Malala Yousafzai
Education quotes by Malala Yousafzai

#131. Men of the highest education in the arts and sciences have learned precious lessons from Christians in humble life who were designated by the world as unlearned. But these obscure disciples had obtained an education in the highest of all schools. They had sat at the feet of Him who spoke as "never man spake." [252] - Author: Ellen G. White
Education quotes by Ellen G. White
#132. It's different when people who've been living under somebody's boot hate the foot the boot's on. An oppressed people can't be racist. They can be bigots, but not racist. You have to have power to be a racist... - Author: Susan Fanetti

#134. The chief object of education is not to learn things but to unlearn things. - Author: Gilbert K. Chesterton
Education quotes by Gilbert K. Chesterton
#135. This is apparently a little promotional ¶ where we're supposed to explain "how and why we came to" the subject of our GD series book (the stuff in quotations is the editor's words). The overall idea is to humanize the series and make the books and their subjects seem warmer and more accessible. So that people will be more apt to buy the books. I'm pretty sure this is how it works. The obvious objection to such promotional ¶s is that, if the books are any good at all, then the writers' interest and investment in their subjects will be so resoundingly obvious in the texts themselves that these little pseudo-intimate Why I Cared Enough About Transfinite Math and Where It Came From to Spend a Year Writing a Book About It blurblets are unnecessary; whereas, if the books aren't any good, it's hard to see how my telling somebody that as a child I used to cook up what amounted to simplistic versions of Zeno's Dichotomy and ruminate on them until I literally made myself sick, or that I once almost flunked a basic calc course and have seethed with dislike for conventional higher-math education ever since, or that the ontology and grammar of abstractions have always struck me as one of the most breathtaking problems in human consciousness - how any such stuff will help. The logic of this objection seems airtight to me. In fact, the only way the objection doesn't apply is if these ¶s are really nothing more than disguised ad copy, in which case I don't see why anyone reading them should - Author: David Foster Wallace

Education quotes by Debasish Mridha
#139. He, unfortunately for himself, had been beautifully brought up. His teacher had educated him as the child is educated in the womb, where it lives the history of man from fish to mammal
and, like the child in the womb, he had been protected with love meanwhile. The effect of such an education was that he had grown up without any of the useful accomplishments for living
without malice, vanity, suspicion, cruelty, and the commoner forms of selfishness. Jealousy seemed to him the most ignoble of vices. He was sadly unfitted for hating his best friend or torturing his wife. He had been given too much love and trust to be good at these things. - Author: T.H. White
Education quotes by T.H. White
#140. A graduate can be academically excellent but morally and spiritually bankrupt. We need to consider these dimensions in education as well. - Author: John Eidsmoe
Education quotes by John Eidsmoe
#141. Education is the knowledge of how to use the whole of oneself. Many men use but one or two faculties out of the score with which they are endowed. A man is educated who knows how to make a tool of every faculty, how to open it, how to keep it sharp, and how to apply it to all practical purposes. - Author: Henry Ward Beecher
Education quotes by Henry Ward Beecher

Education quotes by Garrett Hardin
#143. In large part, we are teachers precisely because we remember what it was like to be a student. Someone inspired us. Someone influenced us. Or someone hurt us. And we've channeled that joy (or pain) into our own unique philosophies on life and learning and we're always looking for an opportunity to share them - with each other, our students, parents, or in our communities. - Author: Tucker Elliot

One of the big things the NFL does is promote education in different fields. - Author: Kamerion Wimbley

Education quotes by Paulo Freire
#157. Someone has said,"Education is going from an unconscious to conscious awareness of one's ignorance."..No one has a corner on wisdom. All the name-dropping in the world does not heighten the significance of our character. If anything, it reduces it.

#161. I am absent altogether too much to be a suitable instructor for a law-student. When a man has reached the age that Mr. Widner has,and has already been doing for himself, my judgment is, that he reads the books for himself without an instructor.

Education quotes by Jacob Bernoulli
#166. We love to learn because learning feels good. It both satisfies and stimulates curiosity. Reading a good book, having a meaningful conversation, listening to great music - just doing these things make us happy. They have no extrinsic purpose. To give them one takes away from their joy. - Author: Zander Sherman
Education quotes by Zander Sherman
#167. The ordinary method of education is to imprint ideas and opinions, in the strict sense of the word, prejudices, on the mind of the child, before it has had any but a very few particular observations. It is thus that he afterwards comes to view the world and gather experience through the medium of those ready-made ideas, rather than to let his ideas be formed for him out of his own experience of life, as they ought to be. - Author: Arthur Schopenhauer
Education quotes by Arthur Schopenhauer

#169. We also wanted to change the story - change the approach to the 21st century on energy, on education, on transportation, on infrastructure, generally, and it laid the groundwork for that. And one of the reasons I'm doing this trip is not only to say what we did worked, but to say we should do more of this. - Author: Joe Biden

#173. Most kids who left or got kicked out of the FLDS ran into very real, very debilitating issues. Boys and girls who had lived all their lives to please their families, church, and Prophet were cut from family ties with no education.

#183. Nicholas Benedict did have an exceptional gift for knowing things (more exceptional, in fact, than most adults would have thought possible), and yet not even he could know that this next chapter was to be the most unusual-and most important-of his entire childhood. Indeed, the strange days that lay ahead would change him forever, though for now they had less substance than the mist through which he ran. - Author: Trenton Lee Stewart
Education quotes by Trenton Lee Stewart
#184. I, like almost all chemists I know, was also attracted by the smells and bangs that endowed chemistry with that slight but charismatic element of danger which is now banned from the classroom. I agree with those of us who feel that the wimpish chemistry training that schools are now forced to adopt is one possible reason that chemistry is no longer attracting as many talented and adventurous youngsters as it once did. If the decline in hands-on science education is not redressed, I doubt that we shall survive the 21st century. - Author: Harry Kroto

Education quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#188. We seem to have forgotten that the expression "a liberal education" originally meant among the Romans one worthy of free men; while the learning of trades and professions by which to get your livelihood merely, was considered worthy of slaves only. But taking a hint from the word, I would go a step further and say, that it is not the man of wealth and leisure simply, though devoted to art, or science, or literature, who, in a true sense, is liberally educated, but only the earnest and free man. - Author: Henry David Thoreau
Education quotes by Henry David Thoreau

Education quotes by Debasish Mridha
#190. By focusing on reality and treating everything in relation to everything else we can raise our awareness above the narrow perspective of what we experience in our daily lives, and solve our problems using a different level of thinking than the one that created them. As a society our focus should be on health, sustainability, education, and ensuring justice and liberty among all individuals. To achieve this we must inform the public of the situation we are in and encourage a positive change in our behavior. We need to evolve our consciousness and change the way that we look at the world - Author: Joseph P. Kauffman

Education quotes by John Lennon
#195. Education is not the amount of information that is put into your brain and runs riot there, undigested all your life. We must have life-building, man-making, character-makin g, assimilation of ideas. If you have assimilated five ideas and made them your life and character, you have more education than any man who has got by heart a whole library. - Author: Swami Vivekananda
