The whole purpose of education is to turn mirrors into windows.
Sydney J. Harris
There is nothing so stupid as the educated man if you get him off the thing he was educated in.
To me education is a leading out of what is already there in the pupil’s soul. To Miss Mackay it is a putting in of something that is not there, and that is not what I call education. I call it intrusion.
To the uneducated, an A is just three sticks.
A. A. Milne
When a subject becomes totally obsolete we make it a required course.
Why should society feel responsible only for the education of children, and not for the education of all adults of every age?
No man who worships education has got the best out of education… Without a gentle contempt for education no man’s education is complete.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
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.
Real education must ultimately be limited to men who insist on knowing, the rest is mere sheep-herding.
The great difficulty in education is to get experience out of ideas.
