I wanted to be the exception to the other kids, but in the right way. We have a lot of suffering in our part of the world, but that suffering is, in a way, a blessing. Obviously, I could not afford to go to school without a scholarship, so that meant I had to excel in order to get one.
Talal Abu-Ghazaleh - Inspirational - Pain - Challenges
- Ambition - School

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.

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

It was quite tough, not many opportunities. I remember in primary school, one of my teachers said, "As for you young man, you haven't got much of a future."
John Ilhan - Criticism - Opportunity - Challenges

Steve Martin - School - Education - Belief - Thinking - Change

My parents shared not only an improbable love, they shared an abiding faith in the possibilities of this nation. They would give me an African name, Barack, or blessed, believing that in a tolerant America your name is no barrier to success. They imagined me going to the best schools in the land, even though they weren't rich, because in a generous America you don't have to be rich to achieve your potential.
Barack Obama - Encouragement - Inspirational - America - Belief - Hope
- Family - Love - Success - School - Rich - Generous

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
