The Only Thing More Expensive Than Education Is Ignorance

 

"The task of the modern educator is not to cut down jungles, but to irrigate deserts." ~ C. S. Lewis

"I cannot teach anybody anything, I can only make them think." ~  Socrates

"It seems to me that at this time we need education in the obvious more than investigation of the obscure." ~ OliverWendell Holmes Jr.

"It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it." ~ Aristotle

Josie - I so agree. I keep telling my nieces that they need to have an education and not just high school.

When I was young a HS education was enough to get a decent job--no longer. I got multiple college degrees anyway, because I love knowledge. Push your nieces until it hurts--one day, they'll thank you.

Love the Aristotle quote...wish more people could understand it.
