Quotable Sunday

Welcome to this edition of Quotable Sunday!

This week, in honor of hubbie's graduation yesterday, my quotes are about education. We had a great day and I have lots to share, but we still have out of town visitors and a busy day planned so it will have to wait until tonight. But for now...

An education isn't how much you have committed to memory, or even how much you know. It's being able to differentiate between what you know and what you don't.
Anatole France

Education is a better safeguard of liberty than a standing army.
Edward Everett

Education is a progressive discovery of our own ignorance.
Will Durant

Education is a social process. Education is growth. Education is, not a preparation for life; education is life itself.
John Dewey

Education is an admirable thing, but it is well to remember from time to time that nothing that is worth knowing can be taught.
Oscar Wilde

Education is learning what you didn't even know you didn't know.
Daniel J. Boorstin

Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself.
John Dewey


Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.

William Butler Yeats ~my favorite ;)

Education is simply the soul of a society as it passes from one generation to another.
Gilbert K. Chesterton

Education is the ability to listen to almost anything without losing your temper or your self-confidence.

Robert Frost

Have a fabulous Sunday!

I'm not so sure about the last one. Most of my educated colleagues have great difficulty keeping their faces and holding their tongues when dealing with abject stupidity.
