The highest result of education is tolerance.
The cure for boredom is curiosity. There is no cure for curiosity.
Education is a progressive discovery of our own ignorance.
It’s not that I’m so smart, it’s just that I stay with problems longer.
The illiterate of the future will not be the person who cannot read. It will be the person who does not know how to learn.
Good teaching is one-fourth preparation and three-fourth pure theatre.
The beautiful thing about learning is that no one can take it away from you.
The only fence against the world is a thorough knowledge of it.
Nine-tenths of education is encouragement.
The mere imparting of information is not education.
—Carter G Woodson
Children have to be educated, but they have also to be left to educate themselves.
Education is the ability to listen to almost anything without losing your temper or your self-confidence.
The great aim of education is not knowledge but action.
Education is an admirable thing, but it is well to remember from time to time that nothing that is worth knowing can be taught.
