They know enough who know how to learn.

In my early life, and probably even today, it is not sufficiently understood that a child's education should include at least a rudimentary grasp of religion, sex, and money. Without a basic knowledge of these three primary facts in a normal human being's life --subjects which stir the emotions, create events and opportunities, and if they do not wholly decide must greatly influence an individual's personality --no human being's education can have a safe foundation.
It is possible to store the mind with a million facts and still be entirely uneducated.
Education makes a people easy to lead, but difficult to drive; easy to govern, but impossible to enslave.
There's a new tribunal now higher than God's --The educated man s!
We are only now on the threshold of knowing the range of the educability of man-the perfectibility of man. We have never addressed ourselves to this problem before.
Parents have a right to insist that godless evolution not be taught to their children.
The mark of a true MBA is that he is often wrong but seldom in doubt.
Education is the fire-proofer of emotions.
Better build schoolrooms for the boy, than cells and gibbets for the man.
Rewards and punishment is the lowest form of education.
It is no small mischief to a boy, that many of the best years of his life should be devoted to the learning of what can never be of any real use to any human being. His mind is necessarily rendered frivolous and superficial by the long habit of attaching importance to words instead of things; to sound instead of sense.
Getting things done is not always what is most important. There is value in allowing others to learn, even if the task is not accomplished as quickly, efficiently or effectively.
He is to be educated not because he's to make shoes, nails, and pins, but because he is a man.
Education is the period during which you are being instructed by somebody you do not know, about something you do not want to know.
It's fairly obvious that American education is a cultural flop. Americans are not a well-educated people culturally, and their vocational education often has to be learned all over again after they leave school and college. On the other hand, they have open quick minds and if their education has little sharp positive value, it has not the stultifying effects of a more rigid training.
Education must have two foundations --morality as a support for virtue, prudence as a defense for self against the vices of others. By letting the balance incline to the side of morality, you only make dupes or martyrs; by letting it incline to the other, you make calculating egoists.
We must do better or perish as the nation we know today.
Education in our times must try to find whatever there is in students that might yearn for completion, and to reconstruct the learning that would enable them autonomously to seek that completion.
The liberally educated person is one who is able to resist the easy and preferred answers, not because he is obstinate but because he knows others worthy of consideration.
Education is not a discipline at all. Half vocational, half an emptiness dressed up in garments borrowed from philosophy, psychology, literature.
There are two educations. One should teach us how to make a living and the other how to live.
What sculpture is to a block of marble, education is to an human soul.
Life is my college. May I graduate well, and earn some honors.
Education helps one case cease being intimidated by strange situations.
Education is the best provision for old age.
The educated differ from the uneducated as much as the living from the dead.
The roots of education are bitter, but the fruit is sweet.
Those who educate children well are more to be honored than they who produce them; for these only gave them life, those the art of living well.
Education is an ornament in prosperity and a refuge in adversity.
Educate people without religion and you make them but clever devils.
The paradox of education is precisely this -- that as one begins to become conscious one begins to examine the society in which he is being educated.
It is very nearly impossible... to become an educated person in a country so distrustful of the independent mind.
A child cannot be taught by anyone who despises him, and a child cannot afford to be fooled.
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.
Our schools should get five years to get back to where they were in 1963. If they're still bad maybe we should declare educational bankruptcy, give the people their money and let them educate themselves and start their own schools
Train up a child in the way he should go; and when he is old he will not depart from it. [Proverbs 22:6]
Education is that which discloses to the wise and disguises from the foolish their lack of understanding.
Life at university, with its intellectual and inconclusive discussions at a postgraduate level is on the whole a bad training for the real world. Only men of very strong character surmount this handicap.
