Words of Wisdom

We all need some wisdom and encouragement from time to time. Here are some quotations from famous people about education.


Albert Einstein
It is, in fact, nothing short of a miracle that the modern methods of instruction have not entirely strangled the holy curiosity of inquiry.

Alvin Toffler
The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn.

Anatole France
Nine tenths of education is encouragement.

The whole art of teaching is only the art of awakening the natural curiosity of young minds for the purpose of satisfying it afterwards.

Annie Sullivan
Children require guidance and sympathy far more than instruction.

Beatrix Potter
Thank goodness I was never sent to school; it would have rubbed off some of the originality.

Pablo Picasso
All children are artists. The problem is how to remain an artist once one grows up.
As the twig is bent the tree inclines.

William Butler Yeats
Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.
