I am indebted to my father for living, but to my teacher for living well.
Learn as though you would never be able to master it; hold it as though you would be in fear of losing it.
Don't worry that children never listen to you; worry that they are always watching you.
To read is to fly: it is to soar to a point of vantage which gives a view over wide terrains of history, human variety, ideas, shared experience and the fruits of many inquiries.
Study without desire spoils the memory, and it retains nothing that it takes in.
I learned very early the difference between knowing the name of something and knowing something.
He who would learn to fly one day must first learn to stand and walk and run and climb and dance; one cannot fly into flying.

Knowledge is power. Information is liberating. Education is the premise of progress, in every society, in every family.
An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.

I am a part of everything that I have read.
Education is a system of imposed ignorance.
I have just three things to teach: simplicity, patience, compassion. These three are your greatest treasures.
Never help a child with a task at which he feels he can succeed.
Reading without reflecting is like eating without digesting.
I have no special talents. I am only passionately curious.
