Education Quotes

I do nothing but go about persuading you all, old and young alike, not to take thought for your persons or your properties, but and chiefly to care about the greatest improvement of the soul. I tell you that virtue is not given by money, but that from virtue comes money and every other good of man, public as well as private. This is my teaching, and if this is the doctrine which corrupts the youth, I am a mischievous person.
Socrates
Hamlet is the tragedy of tackling a family problem too soon after college.
Tom Masson
Human history becomes more and more a race between education and catastrophe.
H. G. Wells
A university is what a college becomes when the faculty loses interest in students.
John Ciardi
Our scientific power has outrun our spiritual power. We have guided missiles and misguided men.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
In business school classrooms they construct wonderful models of a nonworld.
Peter Drucker
An educated man ... is thoroughly inoculated against humbug, thinks for himself and tries to give his thoughts, in speech or on paper, some style.
Alan Simpson
Children whose curiosity survives parental discipline and who manage to grow up before they blow up are invited to join the Yale faculty. Within the university they go on asking their questions and trying to find the answers ... it is a place where the world's hostility to curiosity can be defied.
Edmund S. Morgan
The foundation of every state is the education of its youth.
Diogenes
A writer writes not because he is educated but because he is driven by the need to communicate. Behind the need to communicate is the need to share. Behind the need to share is the need to be understood. The writer wants to be understood much more than he wants to be respected or praised or even loved. And that perhaps, is what makes him different from others.
Leo C. Rosten
Today's family is built like a pyramid with all the intrafamilial rivalries, tensions, jealousies, angers, hatreds, loves and needs focused on the untrained, vulnerable, insecure, young, inexperienced and incompetent parental apex ... about whose incompetence our vaunted educational system does nothing.
Lawrence Kubie
Education is not filling a bucket, but lighting a fire.
William Butler Yeats
Much that passes for education ... is not education at all but ritual. The fact is that we are being educated when we know it least.
David P Gardner
Democracy means government by the uneducated, while aristocracy means government by the badly educated.
Philip Dormer Stanhope
We teachers can only help the work going on, as servants wait upon a master.
Maria Montessori
I found one day in school a boy of medium size ill-treating a smaller boy. I expostulated, but he replied 'The bigs hit me, so I hit the babies that's fair.' In these words he epitomized the history of the human race.
Bertrand Russell
