Schoolhouses are the republican line of fortifications.
Education commences at the mother's knee,and every word spoken within the hearsay of little children tends towards the formation of character.
Education makes the people easy to lead,but difficult to drive;easy to govern,but impossible to enslave.
-Attributed to Lord Brougham
What greater or better gift can we offer the republic than to teach and instruct our youth?
Training is everything.The peach was once a bitter almond;cauliflower is nothing but cabbage with a college education.
-Samuel L. Clemens (Mark Twain)
The things taught in schools and colleges are not an education,but the means of education.
"This education forms the common mind;
Just as the twig is bent the tree's inclined.
There is nothing so stupid as an educated man,if you get off the thing that he was educated in.
Education is the process of driving a set of prejudices down your throat.
If a man empties his purse into his head,no one can take it from him.
Education is an admirable thing,but it is well to remember from time to time that nothing that is worth knowing can be taught.
-Wilde,The Critic as Artist
