" Education is a choice. Attending a class is not education. You must consciously choose to want to be educated or else you never will be educated."

" The first step to knowledge begins as all others, with but a single step out the front door."
Author Unknown --- Submitted by M.L., Age 16 --- Arizona
I pride myself on how smart I am and when I stumbled on this quote it has always reminded me of that step I took outside my home and headed towards school, or the library, or anywhere else I could go to learn. And still each day I take that one step, because each day we all take that one step, but we never really realize it.

" A widow, a single parent, raising her children the best way she knows how. So many mouths to feed, yet no cared to hear her say, she lacked education or experience to earn more than the years minimum wage. Through years of hardship and circumstanced, her hopes and dreams for her children and their future are to learn from her experiences; to triumphantly rise above it all and succeed. This is the site she longs to see, and once accomplished, she will be free."
Written by J. Fatutoa --- California

" Education...beyond all other devices of human origin, is a great equalizer of conditions of men -- the balance wheel of the social machinery...It does better than to disarm the poor of their hostility toward the rich; it prevents being poor."
Horace Mann

" The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education."

" My mother drew a distinction between achievement and success. She said that achievement is the knowledge that you have studied and worked hard and done the best that is in you. Success is being praised by others. That is nice but not as important or satisfying. Always aim for achievement and forget about success."
Helen Hayes

" You are educated. Your certification is in your degree. You may think of it as the ticket to the good life. Let me ask you to think of an alternative. Think of it as your ticket to change the world."
Tom Brokaw

" I wish I could persuade every teacher to be proud of his occupation - not conceited or pompous, but proud. People who introduce themselves with the shame remark that they are, "just teachers", gives me despair in my heart. Did you ever hear a lawyer say depreciatingly that he was only a patent attorney? Did you ever hear a physician say "I am just a brain surgeon?" I beg of you to stop apologizing for being a member of the most important profession in the world. Draw yourself up to your full height, look at anybody squarely in the eye and say, 'I am a Teacher.'"

" This is a Story about four people named, everybody, somebody, anybody and nobody. There was an important job to be done and everybody could have done it, but nobody did it. Somebody got angry about that because it was everybody's job. Everybody thought somebody could do it, but nobody realized that everybody wouldn't do it. It ended up that everybody blamed somebody when nobody did what anybody could have done!"

" Remember this: In science, the force that pulls things down is called gravity. In our world, the force that keeps us down is called difficulty. In science, a work must be done to put things up. In our world, work must be done in order to put us on the top."

" 30 years from now, it won't matter what clothes you wore, who your friends were or how your hair looked. What will matter is what you learned and how you used it."

" Education is one of the most valuable things you can acquire. Be good to those who seek to educate you......the fact that they are willing to makes them extraordinary."
Copyright © 2006 Julianne Buckingham
My mother and father are both teachers and I think that is one of the most noble professions. Professional educators cannot be paid enough for what they do.....they not only teach students a particular subject, but they must also teach them how to be good people. It requires persistence, patience, intelligence, wit, passion for helping others, integrity, and above all else, a genuine love of others. I admire anyone who has the capability to touch so many lives everyday.......and that is exactly what teachers do!

" Kids often put all of their faith on one talent but unfortunately when you go all or nothing, nothing is usually all that you have got."

It is only logical to spread out your opportunities. Don't put all of your eggs in the same basket.

" I prefer to be true to myself, even at the hazard of incurring the ridicule of others, rather than to be false, and to incur my own abhorrence."
