Civilization is a race between disaster and education.
The direction in which education starts a man will determine his future in life
Intelligence plus character-that is the goal of true education.
Just because I don't care doesn't mean I don't understand.
Imagination is more important than knowledge.
The only good is knowledge and the only evil is ignorance.
Investigate, educate and organize.
Patience is a virtue, and I'm learning patience. It's a tough lesson.
Education is an ornament for the prosperous, a refuge for the unfortunate.
Science is what we have learned about how to keep from fooling ourselves.
A little knowledge is a dangerous thing. So is a lot.
The schools ain't what they used to be and never was.
Most people have never learned that one of the main aims in life is to enjoy it.
My weapon is literature
I am so clever that sometimes I don't understand a single word of what I am saying.
Learning never exhausts the mind.
When I am attacked by gloomy thoughts, nothing helps me so much as running to my books. They quickly absorb me and banish the clouds from my mind.
Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough; we must do.

We could never learn to be brave and patient, if there were only joy in the world
The reading of all good books is like conversation with the finest men of past centuries.
