Education quotes

What information consumes is rather obvious: it consumes the attention of its recipients. Hence a wealth of information creates a poverty of attention, and a need to allocate that attention efficiently among the overabundance of information sources that might consume it.
The great aim of education is not knowledge but action.
Actions are the seed of fate deeds grow into destiny.
A man who carries a cat by the tail learns something he can learn in no other way.
The difference between the right word and the almost right word is the difference between lightning and a lightning bug.
Thunder is good, thunder is impressive; but it is lightning that does the work.
