A man who cannot think is not an educated man however many college degrees he may have acquired.
The object of education is not to fill a man's mind with facts; it is to teach him how to use his mind in thinking.
“When everything seems to be going against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it.”
Merely gathering knowledge may become the most useless work a man can do. What can you do to help and heal the world? That is the educational test.
Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goal.
If you think you can do a thing or think you can't do a thing, you're right.

A man's real education begins after he has left school. True education is gained through the discipline of life.
"If I asked people what they wanted, they would have said 'Faster Horses'."
The man who is diligent in the planting of good seed, will find after awhile that he always has something coming to fulfillment.
