Education Quotes

Ingersoll Education... has produced a vast population able to read but unable to distinguish what is worth reading.  ~G.M. Trevelyan To the uneducated, an A is just three sticks.  ~A.A. Milne Nations have recently been led to borrow billions for war; no nation has ever borrowed largely for education.  Probably, no nation is rich enough to pay for both war and civilization.  We must make our choice; we cannot have both.  ~Abraham Flexner Education is a better safeguard of liberty than a standing army.  ~Edward Everett Real education must ultimately be limited to men who insist on knowing, the rest is mere sheep-herding.  ~Ezra Pound Education should be exercise; it has become massage.  ~Martin H. Fischer The object of education is to prepare the young to educate themselves throughout their lives. ~Robert Maynard Hutchins He who opens a school door, closes a prison. ~Victor Hugo Every time you stop a school, you will have to build a jail.  What you gain at one end you lose at the other.  It's like feeding a dog on his own
