A Quote by Edith Hamilton on education, interest, life, pleasure, thought, and world

It has always seemed strange to me that in our endless discussions about education so little stress is laid on the pleasure of becoming an edcuated person, the enormous interest it adds to life. To be able to be caught up into the world of thought - that is to be educated.

In the field of public education the doctrine of "separate but equal" has no place. Separate educational facilities are inherently unequal.

A Quote by E. V. Hammond on chaos, education, good, heart, knowledge, learning, spirituality, and world

Head knowledge is good, but heart knowledge is indispensable. The training of the hands and feet must be added to make a rounded education. We must all learn these days to become spiritual pioneers if we would save the world from chaos.

A Quote by Dr. Rufus E. Clement on education, force, opportunity, potential, power, and suffering

Race tensions thrive on the restricted educational opportunities for Southern Negroes. When earning power is limited or foreshortened by lack of education, whole populations suffer. A potential great producing force, as well as a large possible market for goods, is thus being ignored.

A Quote by Dr. James Bryant Conant on change, country, democracy, desires, education, effort, future, income, and teachers

Public education is a great instrument of social change. Through it, if we so desire, we can make our country more nearly a democracy without classes. To do so will require the efforts of us all-teachers, administrators, taxpayers and statesmen. Education is a social process, perhaps the most important process in determining the future of our country; it should command a far larger portion of our national income than it does today.

A Quote by Dr. James Shelby Thomas on civilization, creation, education, facts, and inspiration

The only limitless thing I know of is human want. Civilization itself is nothing more than the creation of wants, followed by methods of satisfying those wants. At the moment we had better give consideration to the fact that we may not be creating enough stuff to satisfy the wants this education has inspired.

Education is the process by which the individual relates himself to the universe, gives himself citizenship in the changing world, shares the race's mind and enfranchises his own soul.
