Education Quotes from some great people.

Excellence is never an accident. It is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, and intelligent execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives - choice, not chance, determines your destiny.

The state of our educational system is a disgrace to our country. We have an elementary and secondary school system in which close to half of the youngsters never graduate properly. It's a disgrace that there is more illiteracy today than there was 100 years ago.

The object of education is not to fill a man's mind with facts; it is to teach him how to use his mind in thinking.
Henry Ford

 

The most necessary task of civilization is to teach people how to think. It should be the primary purpose of our public schools. The mind of a child is naturally active, it develops through exercise. Give a child plenty of exercise, for body and brain. The trouble with our way of educating is that it does not give elasticity to the mind. It casts the brain into a mold. It insists that the child must accept. It does not encourage original thought or reasoning, and it lays more stress on memory than observation.
By Thomas A. Edison

 

Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.

Nelson Mandela

 

If a man neglects education, he walks lame to the end of his life.

Plato
 

Do not train children to learning by force and harshness, but direct them to it by what amuses their minds.

Plato
 

I have come to believe that a great teacher is a great artist and that there are as few as there are any other great artists. Teaching might even be the greatest of the arts since the medium is the human mind and spirit.

John Steinbeck
