A Quote by Anna Letitia (Aikin) Barbauld on beginning, education, ideas, and sons

You speak of beginning the education of your son. The moment he was able to form an idea his education was already begun. . . .

A Quote by Abraham Flexner on borrowing, choice, civilization, education, nations, and war

Nations have recently been led to borrow billions for war; no nation has ever borrowed largely for education. Probably, no nation is rich enough to pay for both war and civilization. We must make our choice; we cannot have both.

Abraham Flexner (1866 - 1959)

A Quote by Abigail Van Buren on brothers, clothes, dreams, education, freedom, hope, kindness, mankind, peace, people, sleep, and world

For many of us we are always wanting more - we would be happier if we had such and such. Maybe we should pause for a moment and hear what some people in the third world countries would like to make them happier. 1. Having enough to eat so when you go to sleep at night your stomach doesn't ach. 2. Having shoes on your feet and any kind of clothing to keep the cold out. 3. Having a roof over your head. 4. Having the hope that you'll be lucky enough to get some kind of an education. 5. Believing that the dream of freedom, brotherhood, and peace for all mankind will someday come true.

Abigail Van Buren (1918 -)
