Famous quotes containing the words education and/or higher:

    If we help an educated man’s daughter to go to Cambridge are we not forcing her to think not about education but about war?—not how she can learn, but how she can fight in order that she might win the same advantages as her brothers?
    Virginia Woolf (1882–1941)

They are the Hollow Men. They are electronic lice.
    Anthony Burgess (b. 1917)
