When a king asked Euclid, the mathematician, whether he could not explain his art to him in a more compendious manner, he was answered, that there was no royal way to geometry. Other things may be seized by might, or purchased with money; but knowledge is to be gained only by study, and study to be prosecuted only in retirement.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature")

Much may be made of a Scotchman if he be caught young.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature"),
        Boswell's Life of Johnson

Very few men are wise by their own counsel, or learned by their own teaching; for he that was only taught by himself had a fool to his master.
      - Ben Jonson

The highest result of education is tolerance.
      - Helen Adams Keller

The goal of education is the advancement of knowledge and the dissemination of truth.
      - John Fitzgerald Kennedy

Education can give you a skill, but a liberal education can give you dignity.
      - Ellen Key

The educator must above all understand how to wait; to reckon all effects in the light of the future, not of the present.
      - Ellen Key

I consider that it is on instruction and education that the future security and direction of the destiny of every nation chiefly and fundamentally rests.
      - Louis Kossuth

The great mass of humanity should never learn to read or write.
      - David Herbert Lawrence

I have hope that society may be reformed, when I see how much education may be reformed.
      - Baron Gottfried Wilhelm von Leibnitz

Education begins the gentleman, but reading, good company, and education must finish him.
      - John Locke (1)

Virtue and talents, though allowed their due consideration, yet are not enough to procure a man a welcome wherever he comes. Nobody contents himself with rough diamonds, or wears them so. When polished and set, then they give a lustre.
      - John Locke (1)

The opening of the first grammar school was the opening of the first trench against monopoly in Church and State.
      - James Russell Lowell

But it was in making education not only common to all, but in some sense compulsory on all, that the destiny of the free republics of America was practically settled.
      - James Russell Lowell,
        Among My Books--New England Two Centuries Ago

A well-instructed people alone can be permanently a free people.
      - James Madison

As an apple is not in any proper sense an apple, until it is ripe, so a human being is not in any proper sense a human being until he is educated.
      - Horace Mann

Education alone can conduct us to that enjoyment which is, at once, best in quality and infinite in quantity.
      - Horace Mann

Education is a capital to the poor man, and an interest to the rich man.
      - Horace Mann

Education is our only political safety. Outside of this ark all is deluge.
      - Horace Mann

Education must bring the practice as nearly as possible to the theory. As the children now are, so will the sovereigns soon be.
      - Horace Mann

Jails and state prisons are the complement of schools; so many less as you have of the latter, so many more you must have of the former.
      - Horace Mann

When you introduce into our schools a spirit of emulation, you have present the keenest spur admissible to the youthful intellect.
      - Horace Mann

Finally, education alone can conduct us to that enjoyment which is, at once, best in quality and infinite in quantity.
      - Horace Mann,
        Lectures and Reports on Education
         (lecture 1)

In exalting the faculties of the soul, we annihilate, in a great degree, the delusion of the senses.
      - Aime Martin

School is no place of education for any children whatever till their minds are well put in action. This is the work which has to be done at home, and which may be done in all homes where the mother is a sensible woman.
      - Harriet Martineau
