FAMOUS WORDS OF WISDOM ABOUT EDUCATION:
find in so doing.... but to derive lessons from it." ...
~ Quote from Cheik Anta Diop (Black History scholar)
“An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.”
~ Benjamin Franklin
“Knowledge is the prime need of the hour.”
~Mary McLeod Bethune (Educator 1875 - 1955)
"To me the sole hope of human salvation lies in teaching."
~ George Bernard Shaw
"There is no end to education. It is not that you read a book, pass an
examination, and finish with school. The whole of life, from the
moment you are born to the moment you die, is a process of learning."
~ Jiddu Krishnamurti (Indian spiritual teacher)
"Human nature, like a plant, must be cultivated and tended.
This is the task of education (cultivation)."
~ Jean-Jacques Rousseau ( Swiss Philosopher)
"No matter how good teaching may be, each student must take
the responsibility for his own education." ~ John Carolus S. J.
"It is what we learn after we 'know it all' -- that really counts."
~ John Wooden
“Education is the great engine of personal development. It is through education
that the daughter of a peasant can become a doctor, that the son of a mine
worker can become the head of the mine, that a child of farm-workers can
become the president of a great nation. It is what we make out of what we
have, not what we are given, that separates one person from another.”
~Nelson Mandela (ex-Pres. of South Africa)
“Education’s purpose is to replace an empty mind with an open one.”
"Human history becomes more and more a
race between education and catastrophe."
~ H. G. Wells
“The principle goal of education is to create persons who
are capable of doing new things, not simply of repeating
what other generations have done -- people who are
creative, inventive and discoverers.”
~Jean Piaget (educational psychologist)
“Learning is not achieved by chance, it must be sought for with ardor
and attended to with diligence.” ~ Abigail Adams
“Do not train a child to learn by force or harshness; but direct them
to it by what amuses their minds, so that you may be
better able to discover with accuracy the peculiar bent
of the genius of each. Ignorance is the root and stem of all evil.”
~ Plato (Greek author & philosopher)
"Those who think they 'know it all' have no way of
finding out they don't..." ~ Dr. Leo Buscaglia (Univ. of So. Calif)
"The great awareness comes slowly, piece by piece. The path of
spiritual growth is a path of LIFELONG LEARNING.
The experience of spiritual power is basically a joyful one."
~ Dr. M. Scott Peck (American psychiatrist/author, 1936-2005)
"History, as it lies at the root of all science, is also the first distinct
product of man's spiritual nature; his earliest expression
of what can be called Thought." ~ Thomas Carlyle
"We now accept the fact that learning is a lifelong process of keeping
abreast of changes. And the most pressing task is
to teach people how to learn." ~ Peter Drucker (Educator/writer 1909)
"Science is not only compatible with Spirituality;
"To learn about God and Spirituality means first to know ... and then come
into realization of your "true self." Learning is an art. It should
be adopted properly. Education is a step-by-step process. Live a
simple life. Abolish hatred, selfishness, and jealousy. You can
learn from reading books, communing with Nature, ministers,
and spiritual teachers... and from other practices -- such as meditation ."
~ Swami Radhanadaji
"Education must be considered as most important, for as diseases in the
world of bodies are extremely contagious, so, in the same way, qualities of
spirit and heart are extremely contagious. Education has a universal
influence, and the differences caused by it are very great."
~BAHAI TEACHINGS – ( 'Abdu'l-Baha, "Some Answered Questions," p. 214)
