Ethics

A man's ethical behavior should be based effectually on sympathy, education, and social ties; no religious basis is necessary. Man would indeed be in a poor way if he had to be restrained by fear of punishment and hope of reward after death.

Albert Einstein


Exercise

The test and the use of man's education is that he finds pleasure in the exercise of his mind.

Jacques Martin Barzun


F

Facts

It is possible to store the mind with a million facts and still be entirely uneducated.

Alec Bourne


Feelings

They may forget what you said but they will never forget how you made them feel.

Anonymous


Fine Print

Education is when you read the fine print. Experience is what you get if you don't.

Pete Seeger


Fire

Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.

William Butler Yeats


G

Grades

If I were asked to enumerate ten educational stupidities, the giving of grades would head the list... If I can't give a child a better reason for studying than a grade on a report card, I ought to lock my desk and go home and stay there.

Dorothy De Zouche


Greatness

Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.

Mark Twain


H

Hearts

Your heart is slightly bigger than the average human heart, but that's because you're a teacher.

Aaron Bacall


Honest Abe

Upon the subject of education, not presuming to dictate any plan or system respecting it, I can only say that I view it as the most important subject which we as a people may be engaged in.

Abraham Lincoln
