Education means something different to everyone. We each have our own ideas about what we need to learn and how we intend to apply this knowledge. Below are five quotations about education from very different perspectives.
- “Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school.” Albert Einstein
- “Education is a better safeguard of liberty than a standing army.” Edward Everett
- “Why should society feel responsible only for the education of children, and not for the education of all adults of every age?” Erich Fromm
- “I think everyone should go to college and get a degree and then spend six months as a bartender and six months as a cabdriver. Then they would really be educated.” Al McGuire
- “You can get all A’s and still flunk life.” Walker Percy
