My father must have had some elementary education for he could read and write and keep accounts inaccurately.

All of us who are worth anything, spend our manhood in unlearning the follies, or expiating the mistakes of our youth.

As the fertilest ground, must be manured, so must the highest flying wit have a Daedalus to guide him.
      - Sir Philip Sidney (Sydney)

The true order of learning should be first, what is necessary; second, what is useful; and third, what is ornamental. To reverse this arrangement is like beginning to build at the top of the edifice.
      - Lydia Huntley Sigourney

      - Sydney Smith

An education obtained with money is worse than no education at all.

      - Lady Hester Lucy Stanhope

To throw obstacles in the way of a complete education is like putting out the eyes.
      - Elizabeth Cady Stanton

The truth of it is, the first rudiments of education are given very indiscreetly by most parents.
      - Sir Richard Steele

Modern education too often covers the fingers with rings, and at the same time cuts the sinews at the wrist.
      - John Sterling

The worst education, which teaches self-denial, is better than the best which teaches everything else and not that.
