A man who has never gone to school may steal from a freight car; but if he has a university education, he may steal the whole railroad. — Theodore Roosevelt
“I spent three days a week for 10 years educating myself in the public library, and it’s better than college. People should educate themselves – you can get a complete education for no money. At the end of 10 years, I had every book in the library and I’d written a thousand stories.”
- Ray Bradbury
Men are born ignorant, not stupid. They are made stupid by education.
- Bertrand Russell
Perhaps the most valuable result of all education is the ability to make yourself to do the thing you have to do, when it ought to be done, whether you like it or not.
The aim of education should be to teach us rather how to think, than what to think–rather than to improve our minds, so as to enable us to think for ourselves, than to load the memory with thoughts of other people.
