Thoughts for Thursday: Education

Thoughts for Thursday is a new feature hosted by Musings on Fantasia and LKHill.  In this meme, we share thoughts or quotes that we know or have recently come across. Each week there is a specific subject or theme. These can be quotes from books, quotes by famous people, (quotes by YOU, perhaps ;D). Anything from anywhere is game, though we do ask that you keep your quote to a few sentences at most. Don't quote, for example, entire passages of a book or essay. These can be funny quips, cool sayings, hair-raising antidotes, movie lines, any kind of quote you can think of!

Just have fun, collect awesome sayings by awesome people, and try to be inspired!

In honor of all the back-to-schooling going around, this week's theme is Education (For more quotes, check out my other blog.)

The beautiful thing about learning is that no one can take it away from you.--B.B. King

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

Education is essential to change, for education creates both new wants and the ability to satisfy them.--Henry Steele Commager
An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.--Benjamin Franklin

Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.--William Butler Yeats

You educate a man; you educate a man. You educate a woman; you educate a generation.--Brigham Young
Which quote is your favorite? Do you have one to add?


  1. I have my MA in Education and am a bit believer in this pillar of our culture. Great quote choices.
