It’s back to school time for many of us, which has me thinking about education. I homeschool my daughter, so I feel doubly interested in the start of school. Our school district doesn’t start until August 25, but many places have already started!
To celebrate the back to school season (and to get me excited about school when all I want to do is hang out at the pool), here are my favorite author quotes about school.
6 Author Quotes About Education
“The whole object of education is to develop the mind. The mind should be a thing that works.”
“A man who has never gone to school may steal from a freight car; but if he has a university education he may steal the whole railroad.”
–Theodore Roosevelt (not an author, but I love that guy!)
“The object of teaching a child is to enable him to get along without a teacher.”
“Perhaps the most valuable result of all education is the ability to make yourself do the thing you have to do, when it ought to be done, whether you like it or not.”
–Thomas Henry Huxley
“Education is the ability to listen to almost anything without losing your temper or your self-confidence.”
–Robert Lee Frost
“The object of education is to prepare the young to educate themselves throughout their lives.”
–Robert M Hutchins
