A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on college, home, men, and schools

What school, college, or lecture bring men depends on what men bring to carry it home in.

A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on college, education, memory, nature, popularity, schools, students, truth, and words

The popular education has been taxed with a want of truth and nature. . . . We are students of words: we are shut up in schools, and colleges, and recitation-rooms, for ten or fifteen years, and come out at last with a bag of wind, a memory of words, and do not know a thing.

A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on college, education, and schools

The things taught in colleges and school are not an education but a means to an education.

A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on art, books, college, genius, hope, kindness, past, purity, schools, and talent

The book, the college, the school of art, the institution of any kind, stop with some past utterance of genius. . . . They look backward and not forward. But genius looks forward: the eyes of man are set in his forehead, not in his hindhead: man hopes: genius creates. Whatever talents may be, if the man create not, the pure efflux of the Deity is not his; - cinders and smoke there may be, but not yet flame.

Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803 - 1882)

We are shut up in schools and college recitation rooms for ten or fifteen years, and come out at last with a bellyfull of words and do not know a thing. The things taught in schools and colleges are not an education, but the means of education.

A Quote by R. M. Dawes on accuracy, challenge, graduation, hope, imagination, life, schools, success, and uncertainty

Imagine a life without uncertainty... Imagine how dull life would be if variables assessed for admission to a professional school, graduate program, or executive training program really did predict with great accuracy who would succeed and who would fall. Life would be intolerable - no hope, no challenge

A Quote by Professor Zen on certainty, crime, education, novelty, people, and schools

I have a novel way to eliminate crime as we know it. Instead of passing sentences of a certain number of years, why don't we educate the inmates and not let them out until they have maintained at least a C average from a grade school to a high school curriculum. Do you know how many people we could actually keep in prison and for how long? Think about it.

A Quote by Price Pritchett, Ph.D. on knowledge, schools, sharing, society, thinking, and wealth

We've got to start thinking of school as a lifelong process. That's the only way we'll keep abreast and be able to share in the wealth of the new "knowledge society."
