In order to stave off covetouness, greed, and spite, citizens world over must be educated.
Mustafa Kemal Ataturk - Learning - Knowledge - Solution


Financial education needs to become a part of our national curriculum and scoring systems so that it’s not just the rich kids that learn about money.. it’s all of us.
David Bach - Rich - Learning - Finance - Money

There are a lot of universities that are as dangerous with the indoctrination of the children as terrorists are in Iran or North Korea. We have been setting up reeducation camps. We call them universities.
Glenn Beck - Strange - America - University - Iran - North Korea - Children - Terrorism - Education - Conspiracy Theory

In the ethical sense, propaganda bears the same relation to education as to business or politics. It may be abused. It may be used to over-advertise an institution and to create in the public mind artificial values. There can be no absolute guarantee against its misuse.
Edward Bernays - Propaganda - Ethics - Education - Advertising - Manipulation

The normal school should provide for the training of the educator to make him realize that his is a twofold job: education as a teacher and education as a propagandist.
Edward Bernays - Propaganda - School - Training - Education

Eliminating the tax breaks is not going to keep jobs here in America. We've got to make it more attractive to have jobs here in America and for corporations to be here. You've got to take the burden off the corporations with a health care system that's universal, so we're not at a competitive disadvantage. You've got to have a better education system to provide for the highest-tech jobs that we educate our folks for, so we're not importing 400,000 computer engineers to work in Silicon Valley. And you've got to deal with the innovation and infrastructure needs in this country.. tunnels, bridges, etc... which we haven't done to make us more competitive.
Joe Biden - Economy - Taxes - America - Jobs - Companies - Health - Education - Silicon Valley - Innovation

To me, money is a means to do good. I reached a point in my life where I had enjoyed tremendous business success that afforded my family everything we could possibly want. My wife and I then decided that we could use our wealth to make a difference. So we created the Broad Foundations to do four things: to improve urban public education, to support innovative scientific and medical research, to foster art appreciation for audiences worldwide and to support civic initiatives in Los Angeles.
Eli Broad - Money - Business - Success - Philanthropy - Rich - Family - Wealth - Generous - Education - Research - Art

I am not a patient person. My friends and colleagues will confirm this. But, frankly, we should all feel a little more impatient with the state of public education in America today.
Eli Broad - Patience - Education - America


I can imagine no more important contribution to our country’s future than a long-term commitment to improving urban K-12 public schools.
Eli Broad - Education - Imagine - Important - America - School - Commitment - Improvement

Public education is the key civil rights issue of the 21st century. Our nation's knowledge-based economy demands that we provide young people from all backgrounds and circumstances with the education and skills necessary to become knowledge workers. If we don't, we run the risk of creating an even larger gap between the middle class and the poor. This gap threatens our democracy, our society and the economic future of America.
Eli Broad - Education - America - School - Knowledge - Rights - Economy - Skills - Class - Poor - Democracy - Society - Work


Australia must prioritise education spending. It is not a question of whether or not we have the money, it is a question of how we choose to spend it.
Bob Brown - Priorities - Learning - Money


We must have an expansionary vision, one that captures the imagination and diversity of the whole community, one which befits a nation which has moved beyond the basics of literacy and numeracy and which wants to develop a learning culture, to affirm its democratic traditions and give expression to the diversity and vibrance of its community through its public education system. Putting optimism for everyone back into Australia’s future depends on it.
Bob Brown - Learning - Ambition


There's a reason education sucks, and it's the same reason it will never ever ever be fixed. It's never going to get any better. Don't look for it. Be happy with what you've got.. because the owners of this country don’t want that. I'm talking about the real owners now.. the real owners. The big wealthy business interests that control things and make all the important decisions. Forget the politicians. The politicians are put there to give you the idea that you have freedom of choice. You don’t. You have no choice. You have owners.
George Carlin - Education - Problems - Choice - Big Business - Society - Control - Politicians - Freedom

I think that the Bible as literature should be a compulsory part of the national curriculum.. you can't understand English literature and culture without it. But insofar as theology studies the nature of the divine, it will earn the right to be taken seriously when it provides the slightest, smallest smidgen of a reason for believing in the existence of the divine. Meanwhile, we should devote as much time to studying serious theology as we devote to studying serious fairies and serious unicorns.
Richard Dawkins - Religion - Bible - Christianity - Belief - Atheism - Teaching - Education - Culture

Most people, I believe, think that you need a God to explain the existence of the world, and especially the existence of life. They are wrong, but our education system is such that many people don't know it.
Richard Dawkins - God - Religion - Belief - Education - World - Life - Wrong

The bottom line is that if I did it, you can do it. I got rich without the benefit of a college education or a penny of capital but making many errors along the way. I went from being a pauper.. a hippie dropout on the dole, living in a crummy room without the proverbial pot to piss in, without even the money to pay the rent, without a clue as to what to do next.. to being rich..
Felix Dennis - Rich - Money
- Inspirational - Encouragement - Education - Mistakes - Poverty

I believe, indeed, that overemphasis on the purely intellectual attitude, often directed solely to the practical and factual, in our education, has led directly to the impairment of ethical values.
Albert Einstein - Values - Knowledge - Belief - Intelligence - Attitude - Education - Ethics

Vitally important for a young man or woman is, first, to realize the value of education and then to cultivate earnestly, aggressively, ceaselessly, the habit of self-education.
BC Forbes - Knowledge - Self Help - Learning

Everyone agrees that the failure of our high schools is tragic. It’s bad business, and it’s bad policy. But we act as if it can’t be helped.
It can be helped. We designed these high schools; we can redesign them.
Melinda Gates - Help - Failure - Change - Education

Think, for a moment, about our educational ladder. We’ve strengthened the steps lifting students from elementary school to junior high.. and those from junior high to high school. But, that critical step taking students from high school into adulthood is badly broken. And it can no longer support the weight it must bear.
Melinda Gates - Education - Strength - Challenges

A woman with a voice is by definition a strong woman. But the search to find that voice can be remarkably difficult. It’s complicated by the fact that in most nations women receive substantially less education than men.
Melinda Gates - Education - Woman - Strength


As our economy faces up to potential labour shortages due to our ageing population and as it moves to a new level of sophistication to compete with the rest of the world, we’re going to need every Australian on board pulling their weight, rejoining the workforce, gaining new skills.
Writing off individuals and communities suffering from poverty just creates a dead weight for our economy to drag along.
Julia Gillard - Jobs - Australia - Economy - Education - Skills - Poverty


All teachers are good for someone. There are some teachers out there who I cannot stand, for whatever reason. I cannot even bear the sound of one teacher’s voice. Yet they are wonderful teachers for other people. They just are not for me.
Louise Hay - Teaching - Learning - Education


Citizenship has not delivered Indigenous Australians the same quality of life other Australians expect. Basic human rights involve health, housing, education, employment, economic opportunity, and equality before the law, and respect for cultural identity and cultural diversity. These human rights must be capable of being enjoyed otherwise they are empty gestures.
Jackie Huggins - Respect - Australia - Human Rights - Life - Education - Culture - Indigenous

In business, I loved cars. I couldn’t wait to get to work in the morning. Only in America can you decide to get a good education and pursue what you like.
Lee Iacocca - Business - Jobs - Learning - Passions

I was fortunate to get a scholarship when I went to Lehigh University and Princeton. They were both wonderful schools. Somebody was kind enough to spend their money to educate people that they would never get to know. That’s what I think philanthropy is about.
Lee Iacocca - Learning - Money - Philanthropy

I've learned so many things and a lot of things I've learned the hard way. I look at failure as education in that respect I'm very well educated.
Kathy Ireland - Learning - Failure

It was my teacher's genius, her quick sympathy, her loving tact which made the first years of my education so beautiful. It was because she seized the right moment to impart knowledge that made it so pleasant and acceptable to me.
Helen Keller - Encouragement
- Knowledge - Learning

Have you ever been at sea in a dense fog, when it seemed as if a tangible white darkness shut you in, and the great ship, tense and anxious, groped her way toward the shore with plummet and sounding-line, and you waited with beating heart for something to happen? I was like that ship before my education began, only I was without compass or sounding-line, and had no way of knowing how near the harbour was.
Helen Keller - Challenges
- Knowledge - Learning

Let us think of education as the means of developing our greatest abilities, because in each of us there is a private hope and dream which, fulfilled, can be translated into benefit for everyone and greater strength for our nation.
John F. Kennedy - Education
- Great - Hopes - Dreams - Strength

Academic qualifications are important and so is financial education. They're both important and schools are forgetting one of them.
Robert Kiyosaki - Knowledge - Learning


We have to make education a priority, but all this debate about education and testing is almost beside the point. We only spend a fraction of the money on education that we spend on arms buildups. Under a Kucinich administration, education becomes one of the top domestic priorities. We put money into it. We cause the government to be vitally involved in it. And we make sure our children have the love of knowledge.
Dennis Kucinich - Government - Education - Economic - Knowledge - Military

College totally changed my life. It changed what I believe and what I think about everything. I majored in philosophy.
Steve Martin - School - Education - Belief - Thinking - Change

The future of our country is not found in our boardrooms, but in our classrooms.
Michael Milken - Companies -

In the four decades of philanthropy that have paralleled my business career, I’ve found that the same principles apply whether you’re providing access to capital to grow a business, creating a new paradigm for medical research, or pioneering innovative approaches to education: Empower the most talented people in each field and encourage them to pursue their passions.
Michael Milken - Philanthropy -

It's hard to do it because you have got to look people in the eye and tell them they're irresponsible and lazy. And who's going to want to do that? Because that's what poverty is, ladies and gentlemen. In this country (USA), you can succeed if you get educated and work hard. Period.
Bill O'Reilly - Poverty
- Responsible - Lazy - America - Success - Education

Capitalism should not be condemned, since we haven’t had capitalism. A system of capitalism presumes sound money, not fiat money manipulated by a central bank. Capitalism cherishes voluntary contracts and interest rates that are determined by savings, not credit creation by a central bank. It’s not capitalism when the system is plagued with incomprehensible rules regarding mergers, acquisitions, and stock sales, along with wage controls, price controls, protectionism, corporate subsidies, international management of trade, complex and punishing corporate taxes, privileged government contracts to the military-industrial complex, and a foreign policy controlled by corporate interests and overseas investments. Add to this centralized federal mismanagement of farming, education, medicine, insurance, banking and welfare. This is not capitalism!
Ron Paul - Federal Reserve - Government - Military Industrial Complex - Economy - Banks - Welfare - Monetary Policy - Capitalism - Fiat Money - Interest Rates - Protectionism - Taxes - Investment - Farming - Education - Insurance

There are millions of children today who don’t attend school. However, education is the only way to get ahead in this country.
Azim Premji - Learning - Encouragement - Poverty

Our schools are much like our prisons: they disappoint us because they only do what they're designed to do, and it annoys us that they don't do something else!
Daniel Quinn - School -

Education is both a tool of social justice as well as a fundamental driver of economic development.
Kevin Rudd -
Social - Economy - Education

You're going through college, and you're going to be faced with a lot of things. You're going to face adversity, the main thing is don't quit. For many people it's easy to quit, but don't. That's what separates the winners from the losers, what separates the all-stars from the also-rans.
Mr T - Winning
- Inspirational - Encouragement - Education - Losing

You can't know it all. No matter how smart you are, no matter how comprehensive your education, no matter how wide ranging your experience, there is simply no way to acquire all the wisdom you need to make your business thrive.

Donald Trump - Learning - Business - Knowledge


If we don’t rededicate ourselves to education with the same attitude Americans have applied to going to the moon and fighting wars, the results will be profound. We will gradually lose our successful workforce.
Meg Whitman - Education -
America - Jobs - War - Determination - Attitude

Princeton has made an enormous difference in my life, and I am delighted to be able to express my gratitude in such a tangible way. The generosity of earlier generations of donors made it possible for me to attend Princeton as a young student from Hong Kong, and I have always wanted to do all I could to assure that students in the future.. from the United States and around the world.. will have the same kinds of opportunities I had to learn from faculty members who are leaders in their fields at a university that remains second to none in its commitment to teaching. (talking about his $100 million donation to Princeton University)
Gordon Wu - Philanthropy - Education - Help - America - Opportunities
