Famous quotes containing the word education:

    Strange as it may seem, no amount of learning can cure stupidity, and formal education positively fortifies it.
    Stephen Vizinczey (b. 1933)

    I prefer to finish my education at a different school.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    As for the graces of expression, a great thought is never found in a mean dress; but ... the nine Muses and the three Graces will have conspired to clothe it in fit phrase. Its education has always been liberal, and its implied wit can endow a college.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
