Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today.
Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself.
Education is the foundation upon which we build our future.
The greatest gifts you can give your children are the roots, responsibilty and the wings of Independence.
Inventive Genius requires pleasurable mental activity as a condition for its vigorous exercise.
The secret of joy in work is contained in one word, excellence. To know how to do something well is to enjoy it .
The true meaning of life is to plant trees, under whose shade you do not expect to sit.
A truly special teacher is very wise, and sees tomorrow in every child’s eyes.
Education is the key to unlock the golden door of freedom.
