A Quote by Alvin R. Dyer on conquest, day, earth, education, god, newspapers, science, scientists, and trust

When the Russians succeeded in putting the first satellite into orbit, one of their scientists is reported to have said, "Now that we have conquered space, our next conquest is that of man." An American anthropologist, Leslie A. White, of the University of Michigan, is reported in a Detroit newspaper as saying, "A cultural system which can launch earth satellites can dispense with Gods entirely." This is a great day for the false scientist-they who have left God out of their education. Of these the Apostle Paul even in his day warned his weakening convert, Timothy, to beware of: O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called. (I Timothy 6 :20.)

A Quote by Alfred the Great on clarity, education, foolishness, life, promotion, understanding, wishes, and world

He promoted the education of the parish clergy and wrote: He seems to me a very foolish man, and very wretched, who will not increase his understanding while he is in the world, and ever wish and long to reach that endless life where all shall be made clear.

A Quote by Albert Einstein on daughters, education, independence, order, sons, students, suffering, and teachers

To a student: Dear Miss - I have read about sixteen pages of your manuscript . . . I suffered exactly the same treatment at the hands of my teachers who disliked me for my independence and passed over me when they wanted assistants. . . . Keep your manuscript for your sons and daughters, in order that they may derive consolation from it and not give a damn for what their teachers tell them or think of them. . . . There is too much education altogether.

A Quote by Albert Einstein on behavior, death, education, ethics, fear, hope, punishment, religion, reward, and sympathy

A man's ethical behavior should be based effectually on sympathy, education, and social ties; no religious basis is necessary. Man would indeed be in a poor way if he had to be restrained by fear of punishment and hope of reward after death.
