A Quote by Henry Ford II on attitude, country, education, and future

We can't take a slipshod and easygoing attitude toward education in this country. And by "we" I don't mean "somebody else," but I mean me and I mean you. It is the future of our country-yours and mine-which is at stake.

Henry Ford II (1917 -)

A Quote by Henry David Thoreau on education and heaven

My eye is educated to discover anything on the ground, as chestnuts, etc. It is probably wholesomer to look at the ground much than at the heavens.

A Quote by Henry David Thoreau on education

A Quote by Henry B. Eyring on ability, education, humility, obedience, simplicity, spirituality, and work

You will notice that the work is simple obedience. It is not complicated things, it is not fancy things or getting great spiritual manifestations. This work is within the abilities of the most humble and the least educated.

Henry B. Eyring (1933 -)

A Quote by Harry Woodburn Chase on education, hope, knowledge, liberals, lies, prejudice, problems, science, and students

Man's knowledge of science has clearly outstripped his knowledge of man. Our only hope of making the atom servant rather than master lies in education, in a broad liberal education where each student within his capacity can free himself from trammels of dogmatic prejudice and apply his educational accoutrement to besetting social and human problems.

A Quote by Harry Allen Overstreet on belief, creativity, education, future, power, spirit, and value

I may safely predict that the education of the future will be inventive-minded. It will believe so profoundly in the high value of the inventive or creative spirit that it will set itself to develop that spirit by all means within its power.

A Quote by H. F. Osborn on beauty, earth, education, ideas, learning, observation, purpose, reason, time, truth, and world

The all-round liberally educated man, from Palaeolithic times to the time when the earth shall become a cold cinder, will always be the same, namely, the man who follows his standards of truth and beauty, who employs his learning and observation, his reason, his expression, for purposes of production, that is, to add something of his own to the stock of the world's ideas.

A Quote by Gwendolyn Brooks on education, inspiration, justice, schools, and writers

A writer should get as much education as possible, but just going to school is not enough; if it were, all owners of doctorates would be inspired writers.
