I cannot live without books.
What is now proved was once only imagined.
There is one quality which one must possess to win, and that is definiteness of purpose, the knowledge of what one wants, and a burning desire to possess it.
I learned very early the difference between knowing the name of something and knowing something.
It is better to know how to learn than to know.
Study without desire spoils the memory, and it retains nothing that it takes in.
Free the child's potential, and you will transform him into the world.
Evil being the root of mystery, pain is the root of knowledge.
Books! I dunno if I ever told you this, but books are the greatest gift one person can give another.
The knowledge of all things is possible
You can never be overdressed or overeducated.
No man's knowledge here can go beyond his experience.
It is not enough for the teacher to love the child. She must first love and understand the universe. She must prepare herself, and truly work at it.
As we acquire more knowledge, things do not become more comprehensible but more mysterious.
Education is a system of imposed ignorance.
The idea is to try to give all the information to help others to judge the value of your contribution; not just the information that leads to judgment in one particular direction or another.
The highest result of education is tolerance.
There is nothing more awful, insulting, and depressing than banality.
I like poems you can tack all over with a hammer and there are no hollow places.
The whole of science is nothing more than a refinement of everyday thinking.
The ability to observe without evaluating is the highest form of intelligence.
