A Quote by Frank Knox on belief, civilization, education, experience, facts, heart, justice, learning, liberals, men, mercy, progress, quality, thought, tolerance, women, and work

I believe with all my heart that civilization has produced nothing finer than a man or woman who thinks and practices true tolerance. Some one has said that most of us don't think, we just occasionally rearrange our prejudices. And I suspect that even today, with all the progress we have made in liberal thought, the quality of true tolerance is as rare as the quality of mercy. That men of all creeds have fundamental common objectives is a fact one must learn by the process of education. How to work jointly toward these objectives must be learned by experience.

A Quote by Felix E. Schelling on education, genius, individuality, inequality, mediocrity, progress, success, superiority, talent, and world

True education makes for inequality; the inequality of individuality, the inequality of success, the glorious inequality of talent, of genius; for inequality, not mediocrity, individual superiority, not standardization, is the measure of the progress of the world

A Quote by Faith Baldwin on education, knowledge, learning, and meetings

We may differ widely in environments, education, learning, knowledge, or lack of it, and in our personalities, our likes and dislikes. But if we set ourselves the task, we'll find a meeting place somehow and somewhere.

Faith Baldwin (1893 - 1978)

A Quote by F. M. Crawford on business, education, effort, habits, labor, learning, poetry, superiority, and trade

It makes little difference what the trade, business, or branch of learning, in mechanical labor, or intellectual effort, the educated man is always superior to the common laborer. One who is in the habit of applying his powers in the right way will carry system into any occupation, and it will help him as much to handle a rope as to write a poem.

A Quote by Epictetus on belief, education, and people

We must not believe the many,  who say that only free people ought to be educated,  but we should rather believe the philosophers who say that only the educated are free.
