Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.
The purpose of education is to replace an empty mind with an open one.

Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself.
Intelligence plus character-that is the goal of true education.

Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.

It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop.
