Physics is like sex: sure, it may give some practical results, but that's not why we do it.

Educate the children and it won't be necessary to punish the men.
The direction in which education starts a man will determine his future in life
Just when I thought there wasn't room enough for another thought in my head, I had this great idea.
What is now proved was once only imagined.
Intelligence plus character-that is the goal of true education.
No power and no treasure can outweigh the extension of our knowledge.
Men are born ignorant, not stupid. They are made stupid by education.
Knowledge becomes evil if the aim be not virtuous.
Science is not only a disciple of reason but, also, one of romance and passion.
Learn as though you would never be able to master it; hold it as though you would be in fear of losing it.
It is beyond a doubt that all our knowledge begins with experience.
Reading furnishes the mind only with materials of knowledge; it is thinking that makes what we read ours.
No man's knowledge here can go beyond his experience.
Make it a rule never to give a child a book you would not read yourself.

Dare to think for yourself.
Knowledge, Action, Devotion are complementary to each other.
Don't worry that children never listen to you; worry that they are always watching you.
A thought is an idea in transit.
