Quotes

I needed a little inspiration today.  I love quotes, and feel like there is a lot that can be learned from a snip-it of wisdom.  Enjoy a few about education.

“Learning is finding out what you already know, Doing is demonstrating that you know it, Teaching is reminding others that they know it as well as you do. We are all learners, doers, and teachers.”–Richard David Bach

“What sculpture is to a block of marble, education is to the soul.” –Joseph Addison

“It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.” –Aristotle

“The only thing that interferes with my learning is my education.” –Albert Einstein

“It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge.” –Albert Einstein

“I hear and I forget.  I see and I remember.  I do and I understand.”– Unknown

“A teacher who is attempting to teach without inspiring the pupil with a desire to learn is hammering on a cold iron.”  Horace Mann

Acquire new knowledge whilst thinking over the old, and you may become a teacher of others.” — Confucius
