The world of letters is the true world of bliss.
      - Abraham Abulafia

Nothing in education is so astonishing as the amount of ignorance it accumulates in the form of inert facts.
      - Henry Brooks Adams

A statue lies hid in a block of marble, and the art of the statuary only clears away the superfluous matter and removes the rubbish. The figure is in the stone; the sculptor only finds it. What sculpture is to a block of marble, education is to a human soul. The philosopher, the saint, or the hero,--the wise, the good, or the great man,--very often lies hid and concealed in a plebeian, which a proper education might have disinterred, and have brought to light.
      - Joseph Addison

I consider a human soul without education like marble in the quarry, which shows none of its inherent beauties until the skill of the polisher fetches out the colors and makes the surface shine.
      - Joseph Addison

Education may work wonders as well in warping the genius of individuals as in seconding it.
      - Amos Bronson Alcott

Observation more than books, experience rather than persons, are the prime educators.
      - Amos Bronson Alcott

His lack of education is more than compensated for by his keenly developed moral bankruptcy.
      - Woody Allen

Man must either make provision of sense to understand, or of a halter to hang himself.
      - Antisthenes

All who have meditated on the art of governing mankind have been convinced that the fate of empires depends on the education of youth.
      - Aristotle

Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all.
      - Aristotle

The educated differ from the uneducated as much as the living from the dead.
      - Aristotle

The roots of education are bitter, but the fruit is sweet.
      - Aristotle

Those who educate children well are more to be honored than parents, for these only gave life, those the art of living well.
      - Aristotle

Culture is "To know the best that has been said and thought in the world."
      - Matthew Arnold, Literature and Dogma

Real education should educate us out of self into something far finer; into a selflessness which links us with all humanity.
      - Nancy Astor

Histories make men wise; poets, witty; the mathematics, subtile; natural philosophy, deep; morals, grave; logic and rhetoric, able to contend.
      - Francis Bacon, Essays--Of Studies

For were it not better for a man in fair room to set up one great light, or branching candlestick of lights, than to go about with a small watch-candle into every corner?
      - Francis Bacon, The Advancement of Learning

A child cannot be taught by anyone who despises him, and a child cannot afford to be fooled.
      - James Baldwin

It is very nearly impossible to become an educated person in a country so distrustful of the independent mind.
      - James Baldwin

Education commences at the mother's knee, and every word spoken within the hearsay of little children tends towards the formation of character.
      - Hosea Ballou, Sermons, a manuscript

The fruits of the earth do not more obviously require labor and cultivation to prepare them for our use and subsistence than our faculties demand instruction.
      - Isaac Barrow

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

The aim of education should be to teach us rather how to think than what to think,--rather to improve our minds, so as to enable us to think for ourselves, than to load the memory with the thoughts of other men.
      - James Beattie

Education is only like good culture,--it changes the size, but not the sort.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

It was the German schoolhouse which destroyed Napoleon III. France, since then, is making monster cannon and drilling soldiers still, but she is also building schoolhouses. As long as war is possible, anything that makes better soldiers people want.
      - Henry Ward Beecher
