The beautiful thing about learning is nobody can take it away from you.
People learn more on their own rather than being force fed.
“A child educated only at school is an uneducated child.”
– George Santayana
The founding fathers in their wisdom decided that children were an unnatural strain on parents. So they provided jails called schools, equipped with tortures called education. School is where you go between when your parents can’t take you and industry can’t take you.
– John Updike
“Suddenly degrees aren’t worth anything. Isn’t that true? When I was a student, if you had a degree, you had a job. If you didn’t have a job it’s because you didn’t want one. And I didn’t want one, frankly.”
– Ken Robinson
“Learn as though you would never be able to master it; hold it as though you would be in fear of losing it.”
“Medicine is my lawful wife and literature my mistress; when I get tired of one, I spend the night with the other.”
– Anton Chekhov
When ignorance gets started it knows no bounds.
A man who has never gone to school may steal from a freight car; but
if he has a university education, he may steal the whole railroad.
Education is an ornament
for the prosperous, a refuge
for the unfortunate.
Education is like alcohol; some people can’t take it.
April 20, 1890-September 7, 1959
“I spent three days a week for 10 years educating myself in the public library, and it’s better than college. People should educate themselves – you can get a complete education for no money. At the end of 10 years, I had every book in the library and I’d written a thousand stories.”
– Ray Bradbury
Men are born ignorant, not stupid. They are made stupid by education.
– Bertrand Russell
