Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school.
The only thing that interferes with my learning is my education.
He who opens a school door, closes a prison.
I know a lot of people think I’m dumb. Well, at least I ain’t no educated fool.
I prefer the company of peasants because they have not been educated sufficiently to reason incorrectly.
Michel de Montaigne
I learned more stuff in church than I did in the world.
I think everyone should go to college and get a degree and then spend six months as a bartender and six months as a cabdriver. Then they would really be educated.
I would like to learn, or remember, how to live.
I’m not afraid of storms, for I’m learning to sail my ship.
Good teaching is one-fourth preparation and three-fourths pure theatre.
I read Shakespeare and the Bible, and I can shoot dice. That’s what I call a liberal education.
I would rather entertain and hope that people learned something than educate people and hope they were entertained.
Education, like neurosis, begins at home.
Milton R. Sapirstein
Even as kids reach adolescence, they need more than ever for us to watch over them. Adolescence is not about letting go. It’s about hanging on during a very bumpy ride.
Every cliché about kids is true; they grow up so quickly, you blink and they’re gone, and you have to spend the time with them now. But that’s a joy.
Family involvement is a valuable thing and playing together actively can be the ’90s version of it. Instead of just watching, you can do it together… something we don’t spend enough time on. We can motivate and excite each other about fitness.
Family life was wonderful. The streets were bleak. The playgrounds were bleak. But home was always warm. My mother and father had a great relationship. I always felt ‘safe’ there.
Fathers and mothers have lost the idea that the highest aspiration they might have for their children is for them to be wise… specialized competence and success are all that they can imagine.
Few things are more satisfying than seeing your children have teenagers of their own.
Girls are the future mothers of our society, and it is important that we focus on their well-being.
Having a baby changes the way you view your in-laws. I love it when they come to visit now. They can hold the baby and I can go out.
Home life’s great, man. The kids are great, happy and healthy. I’ve reached this sort of wonderful precipice.
The ultimate goal of the educational system is to shift to the individual the burden of pursing his own education. This will not be a widely shared pursuit until we get over our odd conviction that education is what goes on in school buildings and nowhere else.
The main part of intellectual education is not the acquisition of facts but learning how to make facts live.
To accuse others for one’s own misfortunes is a sign of want of education. To accuse oneself shows that one’s education has begun. To accuse neither oneself nor others shows that one’s education is complete.
In true education, anything that comes to our hand is as good as a book: the prank of a page- boy, the blunder of a servant, a bit of table talk – they are all part of the curriculum.
If little else, the brain is an educational toy.
Make your educational laws strict and your criminal ones can be gentle; but if you leave youth its liberty you will have to dig dungeons for ages.
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.
