In order to stave off covetouness, greed, and spite, citizens world over must
Kemal Ataturk - Learning
Financial education needs to become a part
of our national curriculum and scoring systems
so that its not just the rich kids
that learn about money.. its all of
Bach - Rich
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.
Beck - Strange
Korea - Children
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.
Bernays - Propaganda
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.
Bernays - Propaganda
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
Biden - Economy
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.
Broad - Money
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
Broad - Patience
I can imagine no more important contribution
to our countrys future than a long-term
commitment to improving urban K-12 public
Broad - Education
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.
Broad - Education
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.
Brown - Priorities
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 Australias future depends on it.
Brown - Learning
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
dont 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 dont.
You have no choice. You have owners.
Carlin - Education
Business - Society
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.
Dawkins - Religion
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.
Dawkins - God
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..
Dennis - Rich
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.
Einstein - Values
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.
Forbes - Knowledge
Help - Learning
Everyone agrees that the failure of our
high schools is tragic. Its bad business,
and its bad policy. But we act as
if it cant be helped. It
can be helped. We designed these high schools;
we can redesign them.
Gates - Help
Think, for a moment, about our educational ladder. Weve 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.
Gates - Education
A woman with a voice is by definition a strong woman. But the search to find
that voice can be remarkably difficult. Its complicated by the fact that
in most nations women receive substantially less education than men.
Gates - Education
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, were
going to need every Australian on board
pulling their weight, rejoining the workforce,
gaining new skills.
off individuals and communities suffering
from poverty just creates a dead weight
for our economy to drag along.
Gillard - Jobs
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 teachers voice.
Yet they are wonderful teachers for other
people. They just are not for me.
Hay - Teaching
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.
Huggins - Respect
Rights - Life
In business, I loved cars. I couldnt
wait to get to work in the morning. Only
in America can you decide to get a good
education and pursue what you like.
Iacocca - Business
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. Thats what I think philanthropy
Iacocca - Learning
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.
Ireland - Learning
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.
Keller - Encouragement
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.
Keller - Challenges
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.
F. Kennedy - Education
Academic qualifications are important and so is financial education. They're
both important and schools are forgetting one of them.
Kiyosaki - Knowledge
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.
Kucinich - Government
College totally changed my life. It changed
what I believe and what I think about everything.
I majored in philosophy.
Martin - School
The future of our country is not found in
our boardrooms, but in our classrooms.
Milken - Companies
In the four decades of philanthropy that
have paralleled my business career, Ive
found that the same principles apply whether
youre 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.
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.
O'Reilly - Poverty
Capitalism should not be condemned, since
we havent 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. Its 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!
Paul - Federal
Reserve - Government
Industrial Complex - Economy
Policy - Capitalism
Money - Interest
Rates - Protectionism
There are millions of children today who
dont attend school. However, education
is the only way to get ahead in this country.
Premji - Learning
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!
Quinn - School
Education is both a tool of social justice as well as a fundamental driver
of economic development.
Rudd - Social
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.
T - Winning
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.
Trump - Learning
If we dont 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.
Whitman - Education
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)
Wu - Philanthropy
