Any place that anyone young can learn something useful from someone with experience is an educational institution.
Education is what remains after one has forgotten everything he learned in school.
One should guard against preaching to young people success in the customary form as the main aim in life. The most important motive for work in school and in life is pleasure in work, pleasure in its result, and the knowledge of the value of the result to
The point is to develop the childlike inclination for play and the childlike desire for recognition and to guide the child over to important fields for society. Such a school demands from the teacher that he be a kind of artist in his province.
It is a miracle that curiosity survives formal education.
How is it that little children are so intelligent and men so stupid? It must be education that does it.

The modern school without systematic lectures turns out many graduates who lack retention. No sooner has the sound of the word left their teacher’s lips, the subject has been forgotten. . .
One goes through school, college, medical school and one’s internship learning little or nothing about goodness but a good deal about success.
Both class and race survive education, and neither should. What is education then? If it doesn’t help a human being to recognize that humanity is humanity, what is it for? So you can make a bigger salary than other people?

Everything you’ve learned in school as “obvious” becomes less and less obvious as you begin to study the universe. For example, there are no solids in the universe. There’s not even a suggestion of a solid. There are no absolute continuums. There are no s
Do not believe what your teacher tells you merely out of respect for the teacher.
