My Favorite Quotes on Education

By Lara DeHaven

Regardless of your position on the state of our educational system, I am sure that we can all agree that people need education.  How they are educated leads to different opinions and philosophies.  As a homeschooling mom as well as a certified teacher for public education, education has always been one of my interests.  So, I wanted to share five of my favorite quotes on education by arguably very smart and famous people.

1. I have never let my schooling interfere with my education. Mark Twain

2.  Thank goodness I was never sent to school; it would have rubbed off some of the originality. Beatrix Potter

3.  Education is not a preparation for life; education is life itself. John Dewey

4.  Everybody is a genius.  But, if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will spend its whole life believing it is stupid. Albert Einstein

5.  A room without books is like a body without a soul. Cicero

I hope you have enjoyed these quotes.  If you like any of these and would like a widget for your website or blog, then click here to go to Daily Learners.  They have most of these quotes with a picture on a widget for free.  Have fun picking one out.

If you have a favorite quote that I have overlooked, please let me know.  Send it to me via my contact page and include the person who said it.  If I get enough quotes, I will post my reader’s favorites.  Until then, have a great weekend!
