Bertrand Russell

But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it. Buddha

The educated do not share a common body of information, but a common state of mind. Mason Cooley

A man’s mind may be likened to a garden, which may be intelligently cultivated or allowed to run wild; but whether cultivated or neglected, it must, and will, bring forth. If no useful seeds are put into it, then an abundance of useless weed seeds will fall therein, and will continue to produce their kind. James Allen

Sometimes the ignorant are among the most educated. Suzanne Fields

My dream is to bring change to my country to make it a developed country where every child is getting an education. Malala Yousafzai

Things changed in the fourth grade, though. One of the saints in my life is this woman named Imogene Hill, who was a fourth-grade teacher who taught this advanced class.

Education is the period during which you are being instructed by somebody you do not know, about something you do not want to know. Gilbert K. Chesterton

The home is the chief school of human virtues. William Ellery Channing

Real education must ultimately be limited to men who insist on knowing. The rest is mere sheep herding. Ezra Pound

One of the marks of an educated man today is to know what not to read – what not to see or what not to listen to. Ezra Taft Benson

Any child who can spend an hour or two a day, or more if he wants, with adults that he likes, who are interested in the world and like to talk about it, will on most days learn far more from their talk than he would learn in a week of school. John Holt

Leaders are not, as we are often led to think, people who go along with huge crowds following them. Leaders are people who go their own way without caring, or even looking to see, whether anyone is following them. “Leadership qualities” are not the qualities that enable people to attract followers, but those that enable them to do without them. They include, at the very least, courage, endurance, patience, humor, flexibility, resourcefulness, stubbornness, a keen sense of reality, and the ability to keep a cool and clear head, even when things are going badly. True leaders, in short, do not make people into followers, but into other leaders. John Holt

What is most important and valuable about the home as a base for children’s growth into the world is not that it is a better school than the schools, but that it isn’t a school at all. John Holt

It is hard not to feel that there must be something very wrong with much of what we do in school, if we feel the need to worry so much about what many people call ‘motivation’. A child has no stronger desire than to make sense of the world, to move freely in it, to do the things that he sees bigger people doing. John Holt

A child educated only at school is an uneducated child. George Santayana

The plain fact is that education is itself a form of propaganda – a deliberate scheme to outfit the pupil, not with the capacity to weigh ideas, but with a simple appetite for gulping ideas ready-made. The aim is to make ‘good’ citizens, which is to say, docile and uninquisitive citizens. H.L. Mencken

Far from failing in its intended task, our educational system is in fact succeeding magnificently because its aim is to keep the American people thoughtless enough to go on supporting the system. Richard Mitchell

We can get too easily bogged down in the academic part of homeschooling, a relatively minor part of the whole, which is to raise competent, caring, literate, happy people. Diane Flynn Keith

Once upon a time, all children were homeschooled. They were not sent away from home each day to a place just for children but lived, learned, worked, and played in the real world, alongside adults and other children of all ages. Rachel Gathercole

I’ve noticed a fascinating phenomenon in my thirty years of teaching: schools and schooling are increasingly irrelevant to the great enterprises of the planet. No one believes anymore that scientists are trained in science classes or politicians in civics classes or poets in English classes. The truth is that schools don’t really teach anything except how to obey orders. This is a great mystery to me because thousands of humane, caring people work in schools as teachers and aides and administrators, but the abstract logic of the institution overwhelms their individual contributions. John Taylor Gatto

The ultimate goal of the educational system is to shift to the individual the burden of pursing his own education. This will not be a widely shared pursuit until we get over our odd conviction that education is what goes on in school buildings and nowhere else. John W. Gardner

I was delighted to see him growing more cautious and skeptical about what he heard, especially when he heard it from someone in apparent authority. I think that is fundamental to a good education. And if it comes back to bite me from time to time, that’s a price worth paying. Martine Millman

Learning and education are a normal part of everyday life and do not need a vast expensive bureaucracy to force them to happen. Kytka Hilmar-Jezek

There are as many approaches to unschooling as there are people, by design. A child is supported to read when ready and interested, not on another’s timetable, for example. He can and will be encouraged to pursue a wide range of interests, based on his interests, such as free play, inventing, experimenting scientifically, video gaming, role modeling through friendship, spiritual development through inquiry of self and others, athletics, learning to trust himself and others. Kytka Hilmar-Jezek

You will not reap the fruit of individuality in your children if you clone their education. Marilyn Howshall

The home is the first and most effective place to learn the lessons of life: truth, honor, virtue, self-control, the value of education, honest work, and the purpose and privilege of life. Nothing can take the place of home in rearing and teaching children, and no other success can compensate for failure in the home. David O. McKay

More of family and less of school, more of parents and less of peers, more creative freedom and less formal lessons. Raymond S. Moore

Homeschooling will certainly produce some socially awkward adults, but the odds are good they would have been just as quirky had they spent twelve years raising their hand for permission to go to the bathroom. Quinn Cummings

The status quo was rote memorization and recitation in classrooms thronged with passive children who were sternly disciplined when they expressed individual needs. David Guterson

My aim in homeschooling is to give my children the ability to be an adult learner, a skill set that will last the rest of their lives. Nancy Pearcey



Those who know how to think need no teachers. Mahatma Gandhi

Self-education is, I firmly believe, the only kind of education there is. Isaac Asimov

It’s what you learn after you know it all that counts. John Wooden

The secret of education lies in respecting the pupil. It is not for you to choose what he shall know, what he shall do. It is chosen and foreordained and he only holds the key to his own secret. Ralph Waldo Emerson

Walk into a wealthy person’s home and one of the first things you’ll see is an extensive library of books they’ve used to educate themselves on how to become more successful. Steve Siebold

You have to grow from the inside out. None can teach you, none can make you spiritual. There is no other teacher but your own soul. Swami Sivananda

Truth is not to be found outside. No teacher, no scripture can give it to you. It is inside you and if you wish to attain it, seek your own company. Be with yourself. Osho

If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away. Henry David Thoreau

Self-education is the only possible education; the rest is mere veneer laid on the surface of a child’s nature. Charlotte M. Mason

You either write your own script or you become an actor in someone else’s. John Taylor Gatto

Formal education will make you a living; self-education will make you a fortune. Jim Rohn

I think you’re working and learning until you die. J. K. Rowling

All the world is a laboratory to the inquiring mind. Martin H. Fischer

I do not much believe in education. Each man ought to be his own model, however frightful that may be. Albert Einstein
