Education isn't play--and it can't be made to look like play. It is hard, hard work. But it can be made interesting work.
      - Thomas Alva Edison

Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school.
      - Albert Einstein

It is not so very important for a person to learn facts. For that he does not really need a college. He can learn them from books. The value of an education is a liberal arts college is not learning of many facts but the training of the mind to think something that cannot be learned from textbooks.
      - Albert Einstein

The only thing that interferes with my learning is my education.
      - Albert Einstein

The fruit of liberal education is not learning, but the capacity and desire to learn; not knowledge, but power.
      - Charles William Eliot

Education is all a matter of building bridges.
      - Ralph Ellison

A cultivated man, wise to know and bold to perform, is the end to which nature works, and the education of the will is the flowering and result of all this geology and astronomy.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Education should be as broad as man.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

I believe that our experience instructs us that the secret of education lies in respecting the pupil. It is not for you to choose what he shall know and what he shall do. It is chosen and foreordained, and he only holds the key to his own secret.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Teach the children! It is painting in fresco.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

That which we do not call education is more precious than that which we call so.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

The secret of education lies is respecting the pupil.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

We shall one day learn to supersede politics by education. What we call our root-and-branch reforms of slavery, war, gambling, intemperance, is only medicating the symptoms. We must begin higher up, namely, in education.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

What we do not call education is more precious than that which we call so. We form no guess, at the time of receiving a thought, of its comparative value. And education often wastes its effort in attempts to thwart and balk this natural magnetism, which is sure to select what belongs to it.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Only the educated are free.
      - Epictetus

An intelligent, class can scarce ever be, as a class, vicious; never, as a class, indolent. The excited mental activity operates as a counterpoise to the stimulus of sense and appetite.
      - Edward Everett

Education is a better safeguard of liberty than a standing army. If we retrench the wages of the schoolmaster, we must raise those of the recruiting sergeant.
      - Edward Everett

The greatest defect of common education is, that we are in the habit of putting pleasure all on one side, and weariness on the other; all weariness in study, all pleasure in idleness.
      - Francois de Salignac Fenelon

The best that we can do for one another is to exchange our thoughts freely; and that, after all, is about all.
      - James Anthony Froude

The pains we take in books or arts which treat of things remote from the necessaries of life is a busy idleness.
      - Thomas Fuller (1)

My definition of a University is Mark Hopkins at one end of a log and a student on the other.
      - James Abram Garfield,
        tradition has it that he used the phrase at a New York Alumni Dinner

Next in importance to freedom and justice is popular education, without which neither justice nor freedom can be permanently maintained.
      - James Abram Garfield

The best system of education is that which draws its chief support from the voluntary effort of the community, from the individual efforts of citizens, and from those burdens of taxation which they voluntarily impose upon themselves.
      - James Abram Garfield

Just education forms the man.
      - John Gay

Impartially their talents scan,
  Just education forms the man.
      - John Gay,
        The Owl, Swan, Cock, Spider, Ass, and the Farmer--To a Mother
         (l. 9)
