Mark Twain Education

Standard

Did you know that Mark Twain, the genius writer who is now recognized as the “father of American literature,” was not educated beyond elementary school? Mark Twain education quotes express his cynicism towards the mediocre education system. He believes that “schooling” is different from “education.” He warns us of the hazards of following the education system with blind faith.

  • Education consists mainly of what we have unlearned.
  • Training is everything. The peach was once a bitter almond; cauliflower is nothing but cabbage with a college education.
  • We have not the reverent feeling for the rainbow that a savage has, because we know how it is made. We have lost as much as we gained by prying into that matter.
  • God made the Idiot for practice, and then He made the School Board.
  • The man who does not read books has no advantage over the man that can not read them.
  • Just the omission of Jane Austen’s books alone would make a fairly good library out of a library that hadn’t a book in it.
  • There is nothing training cannot do. Nothing is above its reach. It can turn bad morals to good; it can destroy bad principles and recreate good ones; it can lift men to “angelship.”
  • I never let my schooling interfere with my education.
  • The very ink with which all history is written is merely fluid prejudice.
  • Education consists mainly in what we have unlearned.
  • Soap and education are not as sudden as a massacre, but they are more deadly in the long run.
  • Every time you stop a school, you will have to build a jail. What you gain at one end you lose at the other. It’s like feeding a dog on his own tail. It won’t fatten the dog.
  • Don’t let school interfere with your education

Change Quotations

Standard

Some changes are deliberate, while others are a result of the natural progression of life. The first time we notice the natural ageing process (the telltale strands of grey hair), our first reaction is to deny, then defy, and then take action to “correct” the change. But change is the order of nature. The sooner we come to terms with change, the easier it will be for us to get comfortable with it. If you are having difficulty coping with change, read some change quotations. You will find that every grey cloud indeed has a silver lining!

Jesse Jackson: Both tears and sweat are salty, but they render a different result. Tears will get you sympathy; sweat will get you change.
Charles Kettering: The world hates change, yet it is the only thing that has brought progress.
Anatole France: All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy; for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves; we must die to one life before we can enter another.
Glenda Cloud: Change is inevitable, growth is intentional.
Washington Irving: There is a certain relief in change, even though it be from bad to worse! As I have often found in travelling in a stagecoach, that it is often a comfort to shift one’s position, and be bruised in a new place.
Mary S. Almanac: Who we are never changes. Who we think we are does.
Peter F. Drucker: The only thing we know about the future is that it will be different.
Charles Kettering :If you have always done it that way, it is probably wrong.
