Quotes of the Day for 27 August 2000 – Education

I'm not in school, so I don't live and die by the school calendar anymore, but when I see lots of subscribers changing their addresses from and to I know that it's that time again. With admiration for teachers, administrators, staff, and (perhaps most of all) the janitors, and with best wishes to our more studious subscribers, this week will stick to an Education theme.

The quotes:

To those who think that liberty is a good thing, and that it may someday be possible for people to live in a society fit for free, fully human individuals, a thorough education in the nature of language, its uses and abuses, seems indispensable.
     - Aldous Huxley

Next in importance to freedom and justice is popular education, without which neither freedom nor justice can be permanently maintained.
     - James A. Garfield

Education is an admirable thing, but it is well to remember from time to time that nothing that's worth knowing can be taught.
     - Oscar Wilde

My idea of education is to unsettle the minds of the young and inflame their intellects.
     - Robert Maynard Hutchins
