We are coming of Spring Break and into the final quarter of this school year.  I thought, why not a few words of wisdom concerning education to carry us to through the last stretch.  Something to think about…

It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.   – Aristotle

You can educate yourself right out of a relationship with God.   -Tammy Faye Bakker

The most important part of education is proper training in the nursery.   -Plato

Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself.   -John Dewey

A human being is not attaining his full heights until he is educated.   -Horace Mann

Data is not information, information is not knowledge, knowledge is not understanding, understanding is not wisdom.   -Clifford Stoll

Much education today is monumentally ineffective. All too often we are giving young people cut flowers when we should be teaching them to grow their own plants.   -John W. Gardner

Education… has produced a vast population able to read but unable to distinguish what is worth reading.   -G. M. Trevelyan       [or, I would add, what is worth watching]

The great difficulty in education is to get experience out of ideas.   -George Santayana

If someone is going down the wrong road, he doesn’t need motivation to speed him up. What he needs is education to turn him around.   -Jim Rohn

The goal of education is the advancement of knowledge and the dissemination of truth.   -John F. Kennedy

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

We are born weak, we need strength; helpless, we need aid; foolish, we need reason. All that we lack at birth, all that we need when we come to man’s estate, is the gift of education.   -Jean-Jacques Rousseau
