Women, like men, must be educated with a view to action, or their studies cannot be called education.
      - Harriet Martineau

Many societies have educated their male children on the simple device of teaching them not to be women.
      - Margaret Mead

No one in this world, so far as I know--and I have searched the records for years, and employed agents to help me--has ever lost money by underestimating the intelligence of the great masses of the plain people. Nor has any one ever lost public office thereby. The mistake that is made always runs the other way. Because the plain people are able to speak and understand, and even, in many cases, to read and write, it is assumed that they have ideas in their heads, and an appetite for more. This assumption is folly. They dislike ideas, for ideas make them uncomfortable.
      - Henry Louis Mencken, Notes on Journalism,
        an article in the "Chicago Tribune", September 19, 1926, p. G1

The young boys that went to Athens, the first year, were wise men; the second year, philosophers, lovers of wisdom; the third year, mere orators; and the fourth but plebeians, and understood nothing but their own ignorance.
      - Menedemus

I carry my satchel still.
      - Michelangelo (Michelangelo Buonarrotti)

A complete and generous education fits a man to perform justly, skilfully and magnanimously all the offices of peace and war.
      - John Milton

I shall detain you no longer in the demonstration of what we should not do, but straight conduct ye to a hillside, where I will point ye out the right path of a virtuous and noble education; laborious indeed at the first ascent, but else so smooth, so green so full of goodly prospect, and melodious sounds on every side, that the harp of Orpheus was not more charming.
      - John Milton

Enflamed with the study of learning, and the admiration of virtue; stirred up with high hopes of living to be brave men, and worthy patriots, dear to God, and famous to all ages.
      - John Milton, Tract on Education

The Prussian schoolmaster won the battle of Sadowa.
  [Ger., Der preussiche Schulmeister hat die Schlacht bei Sadowa gewonnen.]
      - Count Helmuth Karl Bernard von Moltke,
        In the Reichstag

We should ask, not who is the most learned, but who is the best learned.
      - Lady Mary Wortley Montagu

The education of the present race of females is not very favorable to domestic happiness. For my own part, I call education, not that which smothers a woman with accomplishments, but that which tends to consolidate a firm and regular system of character; that which tends to form a friend, a companion, and a wife.
      - Hannah More

If you suffer your people to be ill educated, and their manners to be corrupted from their infancy, and then punish them for those crimes to which their first education disposed them--you first make thieves and then punish them.
      - Sir Thomas More

A good education is generally considered as reflecting no small credit on its possessor; but in the majority of cases is reflects credit on the wise solicitude of his parents or guardians, rather than on himself.
      - James Cotter Morison

A journalist is a grumbler, a censurer, a giver of advice, a regent of sovereigns, a tutor of nations. Four hostile newspapers are more to be feared than a thousand bayonets.
      - Napoleon Bonaparte (Napoleon I)

Public instruction should be the first object of government.
      - Napoleon Bonaparte (Napoleon I)

I think I should know how to educate a boy, but not a girl; I should be in danger of making her too learned.
      - Reinhold Niebuhr

If a woman seeks education it is probably because her sexual apparatus is malfunctioning.
      - Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche

Everywhere I go I'm asked if I think the university stifles writers. My opinion is that they don't stifle enough of them.
      - Flannery O'Connor

Love is the greatest of educators.
      - Frances Sargent Osgood

To be thoroughly imbued, with the liberal arts refines the manners, and makes men to be mild and gentle in their conduct.
      - Ovid (Publius Ovidius Naso)

In time the bull is brought to wear the yoke.
  [Lat., Tempore ruricolae patiens fit taurus aratri.]
      - Ovid (Publius Ovidius Naso), Tristia
         (4, 6, 1)

In this country every one gets a mouthful of education, but scarcely any one a full meal.
      - Theodore Parker

The victory of the Prussians over the Austrians was a victory of the Prussian over the Austrian schoolmaster.
      - Oskar Ferdinand Peschel, Ausland (no. 19)

The wisest man may always learn something from the humblest peasant.
      - Jean-Antoine Petit-Senn

The best education in the world is that got by struggling to get a living.
      - Wendell Phillips
