Famous quotes containing the words education, early and/or life:

    I think the most important education that we have is the education which now I am glad to say is being accepted as the proper one, and one which ought to be widely diffused, that industrial, vocational education which puts young men and women in a position from which they can by their own efforts work themselves to independence.
    William Howard Taft (1857–1930)

    Franklin said once in one of his inspired flights of malignity—
    Early to bed and early to rise
    Make a man healthy and wealth and wise.
    As if it were any object to a boy to be healthy and wealthy and wise on such terms.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)

    Through the certain prospect of death, a precious, sweet- smelling drop of levity might be mixed into every life—but now you strange pharmacist-souls have turned it into a foul-tasting drop of poison through which all life is made repulsive.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)
