"Reeling and Writhing, of course, to begin with," the Mock Turtle replied, "and the different branches of Arithmetic--Ambition, Distraction, Uglification, and Derision."
      - Lewis Carroll (pseudonym of Charles L. Dodgson),
        Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (ch. X)

Not with whom you are born, but with whom you are bred.
  [Sp., No con quien naces, sino con quien paces.]
      - Cervantes (Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra),
        Don Quixote (II, 10)

I have no sympathy whatever with those who would grudge our workmen and our common people the very highest acquisitions which their taste or their time or their inclination would lead them to realize.
      - Thomas Chalmers

It is not scholarship alone, but scholarship impregnated with religion, that tells on the great mass of society. We have no faith in the efficacy of mechanic's institutes, or even of primary and elementary schools, for building up a virtuous and well conditioned peasantry, so long as they stand dissevered from the lessons of Christian piety.
      - Thomas Chalmers

He is to be educated because be is a man, and not because he is to make shoes, nails, and pins.
      - William Ellery Channing

Do not ask if a man has been through college. Ask if a college has been through him; if he is a walking university.
      - Edwin Hubbell Chapin

Into what boundless life, does education admit us. Every truth gained through it expands a moment of time into illimitable being--positively enlarges our existence, and endows us with qualities which time cannot weaken or destroy.
      - Edwin Hubbell Chapin

To be in the weakest camp is to be in the strongest school.
      - Gilbert Keith Chesterton, Heretics

The classroom should be an entrance into the world, not an escape from it.
      - John Ciardi

What greater or better gift can we offer the republic than to teach and instruct our youth?
  [Lat., Quod enim munus reiplicae afferre majus, meliusve possumus, quam si docemus atque erudimus juventutem?]
      - Cicero (Marcus Tullius Cicero) (often called "Tully" for short),
        De Divinatione (II, 2)

Thalwell thought it very unfair to influence a child's mind by inculcating any opinions before it had come to years of discretion to choose for itself. I showed him my garden, and told him it was a botanical garden. "How so?" said he; "it is covered with weeds." "O," I replied, "that is only because it has not yet come to its age of discretion and choice. The weeds, you see, have taken the liberty to grow, and thought it unfair in me to prejudice the soil towards roses and strawberries."
      - Samuel Taylor Coleridge

The acquirements of science maybe termed the armor of the mind.
      - Charles Caleb Colton

How much a dunce that has been sent to roam
  Excels a dunce that has been kept at home.
      - William Cowper, Progress of Error (l. 410)

Prussia is great because her people are intelligent. They know the alphabet. The alphabet is conquering the world.
      - George William Curtis

There is, between the sexes, a law of incessant reciprocal action, of which God avails himself in the constitution of the family, when He permits brothers and sisters to nestle about the same hearthstone. Its ministration is essential to the best educational results. Our own educational institutions should rest upon this divine basis.
      - Caroline H. Dall

It is not the mediocrity of women's education which makes their weakness; it is their weakness which necessarily causes their mediocrity.
      - Joseph Marie De Maistre

The foundation of every state is the education of its youth.
      - Laertius Diogenes, according to Stobaeus

Upon the education of the people of this country the fate of this country depends.
      - Benjamin Disraeli, 1st Earl of Beaconsfield

We are taught words, not ideas.
      - Benjamin Disraeli, 1st Earl of Beaconsfield

Wherever is found what is called a paternal government was found a State education. It had been discovered that the best way to insure implicit obedience was to commence tyranny in the nursery.
      - Benjamin Disraeli, 1st Earl of Beaconsfield

Education, however indispensable in a cultivated age, produces nothing on the side of genius. When education ends, genius often begins.
      - Isaac D'Israeli

The Self-Educated are marked by stubborn peculiarities.
      - Isaac D'Israeli, Literary Character
         (ch. VI)

To breed up the son to common sense is evermore the parent's least expense.
      - John Dryden

By education most have been misled.
      - John Dryden, Hind and the Panther
         (pt. III, l. 389)

Education is a progressive discovery of our own ignorance.
      - William James (Will) Durant
