Education Quotes

It must be remembered that the purpose of education is not to fill the minds of students with facts…it is to teach them to think.

Robert M. Hutchins

College football is a sport that bears the same relation to education that bullfighting does to agriculture.

Elbert Hubbard

Electricity is often called wonderful, beautiful; but it is so only in common with the other forces of nature. The beauty of electricity or of any other force is not that the power is mysterious, and unexpected, touching every sense at unawares in turn, but that it is under law, and that the taught intellect can even govern it largely. The human mind is placed above, and not beneath it, and it is in such a point of view that the mental education afforded by science is rendered super-eminent in dignity, in practical application and utility; for by enabling the mind to apply the natural power through law, it conveys the gifts of God to man.

Michael Faraday

But the channel is always there, and it is our business to keep it open, to have access to the deepest part of ourselves.

Saul Bellow

Formal education will make you a living; self-education will make you a fortune.

Lucy Parsons

Soap and education are not as sudden as a massacre, but they are more deadly in the long run.

Mark Twain

The ultimate end of education is happiness or a good human life, a life enriched by the possession of every kind of good, by the enjoyment of every type of satisfaction.

Mortimer Adler

Education alone can conduct us to that enjoyment which is, at once, best in quality and infinite in quantity.

Horace Mann

The country experience was more of a departure. When you consider my education and my upbringing, you can see that was more of country rock outgrowth of my popular music aspirations.

Tom Wopat

As much experience, education and awareness as one can attain is important for a comedian.

Shelley Berman

Whenever is found what is called a paternal government, there is found state education. It has been discovered that the best way to ensure implicit obedience is to commence tyranny in the nursery
