THOUGHT FOR TODAY:

EDUCATION

“We are faced with the paradoxical fact that education has become one of the chief obstacles to intelligence and freedom of thought.”
—  Bertrand Russell

“We are shut up in schools and college recitation rooms for ten or fifteen years, and come out at last with a bellyful of words and do not know a thing.”
—  Ralph Waldo Emerson

“An education isn’t how much you have committed to memory, or even how much you know. It’s being able to differentiate between what you know and what you don’t.” –
—  Malcolm Forbes

“Beware of the man who works hard to learn something, learns it, and finds himself no wiser than before. He is full of murderous resentment of people who are ignorant without having come by their ignorance the hard way.”
—  Kurt Vonnegut

“If I ran a school, I’d give the average grade to the ones who gave me all the right answers, for being good parrots. I’d give the top grades to those who made a lot of mistakes and told me about them, and then told me what they learned from them.”
—  Buckminster Fuller
