Great Quotations About Education


“A man with a scant vocabulary will almost certainly be a weak thinker. The richer one’s vocabulary and the greater one’s awareness of subtle nuances of meaning, the more fertile and precise is likely to be one’s thinking. If you do not know the words, you can hardly know the thing.”

~ Henry Hazlitt, Thinking as a Science



“No problem can withstand the assault of sustained thinking.”



“If everyone is thinking alike, then somebody isn’t thinking.”

~ George S. Patton


“One of the reasons people stop learning is that they become less and less willing to risk failure.”

~ John W. Gardner


“Don’t limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.”

~  Rabindranath Tagore


“The trouble with having an open mind, of course, is that people will insist on coming along and trying to put things in it.”

~ Terry Pratchett


“Whoever ceases to be a student has never been a student.”

~ George Iles


“Learn everything you can anytime you can from anyone you can. There will come a time when you will be grateful you did.”

~ Sarah Caldwell


“Formal education will make you a living; self-education will make you a fortune.”

~ Jim Rohn


“It is not that I’m so smart. But I stay with the questions much longer.”

~ Albert Einstein


“Whether at eighty or twenty, anyone who stops learning is old.”

~Henry Ford
