Education, Experience, Study, Teaching
Learning is a kind of natural food for the mind.
You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him to find it within himself.
Each day is the scholar of yesterday.
Reading maketh a full man; conference a ready man; and writing an exact man.
Crafty men condemn studies, simple men admire them, and wise men use them.
Some men grow mad by studying much to know, but who grows mad by studying good to grow.
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.
Seeing much, suffering much, and studying much, are the three pillars of learning.
The best education in the world is that got by struggling to get a living.
There are three schoolmasters for everybody that will employ them. . . the senses, intelligent companions, and books.
To know how to suggest is the great art of teaching.
HENRI FREDERIC AMIEL
Reading and writing, arithmetic and grammar do not constitute education, any more than a knife, fork and spoon constitute a dinner.
Education is what survives when what has been learnt has been forgotten.
How much you know is less important than how fast you are learning.
Only the educated are free.
Education is leading human souls to what is best, and making what is best out of them; and these two objects are always attainable together, and by the same means; the training which makes men happiest in themselves also makes them most serviceable to others.
Knowledge increases in proportion to its use, that is, the more we teach the more we learn.
Learning is weightless. . . treasure you always carry easily.
What we have to learn to do, we learn by doing.
Study what thou art
Whereof thou art a part
What thou knowest of this art
This is really what thou art.
All that is without thee also is within.
To waken interest and kindle enthusiasm is the sure way to teach easily and successfully.
Perhaps the most valuable result of all education is the ability to make yourself do the thing you have to do, when it ought to be done, whether you like it or not.
Never regard study as a duty but as an enviable opportunity to learn to know the liberating influence of beauty in the realm of the spirit for your own personal joy and to the profit of the community to which your later works belong.
And still they gazed, and still the wonder grew, That one small head should carry all it knew.
He might have been a very clever man by nature, but he had laid so many books on his head that his brain could not move.
One impulse from a vernal wood
May teach you more of man,
Of moral evil and of good,
Than all the sages can.
The important thing is not to stop questioning.
Imagination is more important than knowledge.
Teachers open the door. . . You enter by yourself.
The process of scientific discovery is, in effect, a continual flight from wonder.
