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

    Perhaps the most valuable result of all education is the ability to make yourself do the thing you have to do, when it ought to be done, whether you like it or not; it is the first lesson that ought to be learned; and however early a man’s training begins, its probably the last lesson that he learns thoroughly.
    Thomas Henry Huxley (1825–95)

    There are two times in a man’s life when he should not speculate: when he can’t afford it, and when he can.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)

    I would urge that the yeast of education is the idea of excellence, and the idea of excellence comprises as many forms as there are individuals, each of whom develops his own image of excellence. The school must have as one of its principal functions the nurturing of images of excellence.
    Jerome S. Bruner (20th century)
