The entire object of true education, is to make people not merely do the right thing, but to enjoy right things; not merely industrious, but to love industry; not merely learned, but to love knowledge.
Education is the leading of human souls to what is best, and making what is best out of them.
The first condition of education is being able to put someone to wholesome and meaningful work.
Education does not mean teaching people what they do not know. It means teaching them to behave as they do not behave.
The first duty of government is to see that people have food, fuel, and clothes. The second, that they have means of moral and intellectual education.
Modern education has devoted itself to the teaching of impudence, and then we complain that we can no longer control our mobs.
The child who desires education will be bettered by it; the child who dislikes it disgraced.
To make your children capable of honesty is the beginning of education.
